Join Mr. Spann as he returns from vacation, this Saturday, 8/20/16 at 1:00 PM EST on Facebook Live for episode 124 of #TSRP In this episode, Spann speaks on his trip to New Orleans, and the flooding in Baton Rouge. And why are people acting as if there is a such thing as “legit bootlegging?” (I’m looking at you jailbroken Amazon Firestick owners.) A man gets to know his van in the biblical sense, and Ryan Lochte got caught telling a WHOPPER of a story. And later in the show we discuss Nate Parker, and the sexual assault he’s accused of from 1999 while a college student at Penn State University, and what it could mean for him, his career, and upcoming “Birth Of A Nation” film. We also have a new AssHat and Champ of the Week! A whole lot to talk about this week on The Spann Report!

Its Throwback Thursday, and in today’s throwback episode, we go back to the beginning of the year with the very 1st Episode. With the news of Nate Parker’s rape accusations coming to the forefront, we revisit the discussion surrounding consent in sexual encounters. Unfortunately, we still need to have this discussion.

We then will discuss the death of Korryn Gaines, and the mental gymnastics a lot of brothers are exhibiting to show just how much they simply don’t get it.

It’s THURSDAY! And in the spirit of #ThrowbackThursday I’ve decided to go back into the archives and re-release an older episode that I think might be relevant to today, and also, to show how far along The Spann Report as a podcast, and Mr. Spann as a host has come. This episode is exactly 5 years old today.

In Episode 11 of #TSRP Mr. Spann embraces his inner nerd, talks about the push to make feature film “The Help” into a Hollywood blockbuster and about the state of quality Hip Hop in Detroit. And later in the show Spann addresses the Poverty Bus Tour spearheaded by Tavis Smiley and Dr. Cornel West, the riots over in the UK, and Mr. Spann makes a trip back home to Chicago that was epic for reasons you might not expect.

Music Played During Show:

1.) “Celebration” by: Tank featuring Drake (Now Or Never Album)
2.) “Loud Noises” by: Bad Meets Evil featuring Slaughterhouse (Hell – The Sequel Album)
3.) “Love Through Her” by: The Weeknd
4.) “Homecoming” by: Kanye West featuring Chris Martin (Graduation Album)
5.) “Out Of Character” by: Avant (Avant Album)
6.) “No Church In The Wild by: Jay-Z & Kanye West featuring Frank Ocean (Watch The Throne Album)

Join Mr. Spann for episode 122 of #TSRP this Saturday, July 30th at 4:30 PM EST as we discuss cussing friends out on facebook, and being scared to death at the old school “Showbiz Pizza” joints back in the day. Michael Jordan finally breaks his silence on a political issue, but is it too little, too late for MJ? Lil Bow Wow says he’s mixed, and the rest of us just shrugged our shoulders. What’s wrong with what he said? And later in the show, we’ll talk about the Democratic National Convention that happened earlier in the week. We have a new AssHat and Champ this week, and more listener feedback. All of that this week on The Spann Report!

Join Mr. Spann on Facebook LIVE this Saturday, 7/23/16 at 4:30 PM Eastern time for episode 121 of #TSRP as Spann talks about Milania Trump, AKA MC Trumpso, AKA Villi Manilli, AKA Jackie 4 Beats, who’s in the news, as controversy surrounds her plagiarism of Michelle Obama’s 2008 Democratic National Convention speech. The Republican National convention turns into a coronation of Donald Trump (Yes, it’s really happening.) The NBA has decided to move the 2017 All Star Game from Charlotte, North Carolina in response to the anti-transgender House Bill 2 law that restricts their bathroom usage. Is this a good, or a bad move for the NBA? And later in the show, unfortunately another unarmed black man was shot by the police. Charles Kinsey luckily lives to tell his story. We’ll discuss why despite the constant refrain from #BlackLivesMatter critics, sometimes, even being cooperative won’t stop police from shooting you. We have a new AssHat, and Champ this week, and listener feedback as well, this week on The Spann Report!

Join Mr. Spann of The Spann Report, and Mr. Gates of The Haterazzi Radio Show for the 5th installment of “The Art Of Disagreement.” Listen in as these two go at it about the Black Lives Matter movement AGAIN, discussing why there is still a contingent of black folks who still have reservations about the movement after the highly publicized deaths of Alton Sterling, and Philando Castile. Both men died while cameras were rolling. Fireworks definitely flew this episode, listen, and decide for yourself.

Join Mr. Spann this Saturday, July 16th at 4:30 EST, on Facebook Live, for episode 119 of #TSRP as we discuss the explosion of Pokemon Go! Who’s playing the game, and why are people giving them shit? Spann has more #UnpopularBlackOpinions how does this dude sleep at night? And later in the show, we discuss how the police have a penchant for passing the buck when it comes to their accountability, from Dallas Police Chief David Brown offering job applications to protesters of police violence, to North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory signing into law legislation that would bar public access to body, and dash cam police videos. We’ve got a new “class” of AssHat Of The Week Candidates, and Champs this week as well this week on The Spann Report!

Join Mr. Spann for Episode 118 of #TSRP as we talk about this past July 4th, as Spann becomes the Angry Old Man that everybody hates. The NBA Free Agency spending spree has started, and the big prize has found a new location. So why are people so damn upset? Spann hits us with more of his #UnpopularBlackOpinions and makes you question why are you even friends with this dude. And later we talk about the unfortunate shooting deaths of Alton Sterling, Philando Castile, and the officers killed in Dallas TX. We’ve got a “class” of AssHats this week, and a new Champ of The Week as well, this week on The Spann Report!

On episode 117 of #TSRP, Spann rejoices at the head explosions around the world with the Cleveland Cavaliers beating the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals. #UnpopularBlackOpinion returns and y’all might think Spann is out of his mind. (Or is he?) Voters in the United Kingdom are reeling after passing a binding referendum to leave the European Union. Many voters there are asking for a do over. Could something similar to that happen here in the United States? The BET Awards happened and Jessie Williams of Grey’s Anatomy set the world on fire with his Humanitarian Award speech. How did he manage to have black men, and white women mad at him. And what exactly is cultural appropriation? We’ve got new Asshat and Champ of The Week Candidates, and listener feedback to respond to as well this week on The Spann Report!
