Sterling may or may not be feeling truculent in this episode whilst Kortney may or may not be feeling excited about the arrival of the Black Widow film. The almost BHF examines the many portrayals of Malcolm X but the actual BHF is Beyonce's epic release of her self-titled album. A brief history of watching bootlegs, James Spader vs Billy Bob Thornton and other things that have scarred us over the years. And another brief update on our favorite space anomaly Oumuamua.

In the long-awaited part 2 of the return of the hiatus, Sterling and Kortney answer "Best 3 of..." questions, including best emotional scenes in movies, food, trailers, and more. Later, they give honor to Eugene Goodman for Black History Fact. 

139A. 1202021

Welcome back! Is this season 2 now? Sterling and Kortney return from hiatus but there's not enough time to talk about all the things that happened in the last few months or years since the last episode. Some of those things they don't have enough time to talk about include HBO Max, Disney+, Heaven's Gate, Tenet, Letter Kenny, and more. Sterling talks about the harrowing adventures he's had with his apartment so far and why he's boycotting Door Dash. 

Sterling invites Vilissa, Janelle, Neysha, and Nick to join him and Kortney for a special live episode discussing the regular nonsense such as appearing (and later disappearing) mirror monoliths in the desert. Sterling also asks a series of questions which yields a favorite response of "cotton balls of sheep." 

This is also the last episode of 2020, which wasn't known at the time of initial recording, but does include an excerpt from a Patreon only episode. To see the live episode video feed, check it out on Patreon here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/44512710

What is Dreamstorm? We couldn't tell you but it's fascinating and you need to experience what we know of it (watch the YouTube clip here) and if it can help manifest the gingerbread Oreos that Sterling craves. Also, Sterling learns a startling fact about Kortney! Sterling also freaks Kortney out with the rules of the Elevator Game which may or may not have played a role in Elisa Lam's mysterious death. Sprites and elves exist on both Earth and Jupiter. And Sheboygan is open for visiting! Our BHF segment features the glorious feats of Stacey Abrams, a true warrior queen.

Sterling and Kortney invite long time fan and captain of Sterling's Auntie Army: Aunt Cindy, as she spooks the pod with ghost stories from the haunted building she clocked in at daily. Also, Kortney discusses her experience with the FIYAH Lit Mag writing conference she attended, and Sterling shares more pod recommendations to enlighten your life. Sterling would like you to know: this is the most produced episode he's mixed in a while. Good job, sir.

Sterling invites Vilissa and Neysha to dissect the good, the bad, and the ugly as they take a look at the first season of HBO's Lovecraft Country. Be warned, heavy spoilers throughout as they start with the finale and discuss all episodes. Did you watch the show? Did you read the book it's based on? What did you think?

Sterling brings out all the toys and spills tea on all the tricks of the trade! That's right, Word Watch, Sheboygan news, #askindoob mailbag, SPACE!, Spookums Zone and of course BHF! Later, Sterling talks behind the scenes of podcasting and what's happening in the industry.
