(Ep. 245) #TSRP “That Same Energy”

On episode 245 of #TSRP Mr. Spann is again joined by Mrs. Spann to talk about the news and topics of the day, and then we hop right In The News, as the Associated Press release findings from the 2018 Mid-Term Elections that showed in 5 states where Republicans got LESS votes than their Democratic counterparts, they were still able to keep control of state legislatures. Is this another example of gerrymandering run amok? In Michigan, the Attorney General has just banned the practice of orphanages denying prospective LGBT adoptive parents the chance to adopt. The German family that owns franchises like Krispy Kreme donuts and Panera Bread has released information that concludes that their ancestors were enthusiastic supporters of Adolph Hitler, and they plan to donate millions of dollars to make it right. But will this information affect whether or not you continue to visit their establishments again? And in yet ANOTHER update to the saga of Jussie Smollett, ALL charges against him have been dropped, and his records on the matter sealed? Is this vindication for him, or is this bigger than Nino Brown? Then we’re off to Blue Blazes as Cardi B has social media buzzing after admitting on Instagram that she used to drug and rob men while she was an exotic dancer. Is this yet another case of a rapper using criminal means to finance their career, is she only getting this scrutiny because she’s a woman, or is there a bit of hypocrisy in how we talk about it when we like the person involved? Wendy Williams has been hospitalized after an apparent relapse to her sobriety after her husband’s alleged mistress gives birth. Over in the UK the kids are having a hard time reading analog clocks in the school. So the school has opted to remove them, but isn’t school where you go to learn how to read them though? And two men in Macomb County Michigan hatched a plot to get a man free from paying Child Support, you won’t believe how far they were willing to take it. We take a break from Proud To Be American this week and get right into our AssHat & Champ of The Week announcements, and then we close out the show. So kick it with BOTH of the Spanns getting that Real Talk, ALL THE TIME here on The Spann Report!

(Ep. 244) #TSRP “Shutting Up Is Absolutely Free”

On episode 244 of #TSRP Spann is back with from Jury Duty, and boy did that suck. What a colossal waste of time, so you know he’s got to tell us about that experience. Then we hop In The News, as a Chicago Police union is calling for an investigation into Cook County State Attorney Kim Foxx who recused herself from the Jussie Smollett investigation. That saga continues to go on. Ex-felons in the state of Florida have had their voting rights restored after an amendment to their state constitution re-established their franchise. Great right? And ICE has made the biggest cocaine bust in 25 years just this month. But where this bust happened is not exactly where the current administration would like you focusing your attention to. We then move on to Blue Blazes, where Instagram comedian Jess Hilarious has been caught up in a social media firestorm after an anti-Sikh video she made while on an airplane, thinking that she was talking about Muslims went viral. First she doubled down, now she’s issuing apologies. Which part of it do you believe she really means? Singer Daniel Caesar has also found himself on the business end of a social media dragging after coming to the defense of white rapper Yes Julz who has been under heavy scrutiny as of late for her seemingly repeated penchant of attacking black women in her music, mostly while surrounded by black men. Caesar went on Instagram Live to back her up, but to proclaim that black people are always playing the role of victim. We’ll unpack this a bit tonight. And former head of the Democratic National Committee, Donna Brazile has landed a new political contributor gig on Fox News. She believes that she needs to give voice to the Democratic party to the largely Republican right wing leaning station. But are we well beyond that point now? Then we move on to Proud To Be An American, where a Virginia School Resource Officer was identified as part of white supremacist group Identity Evropa where he actively worked in recruiting other members. Color us surprised… Also in Missouri, State Rep Andrew McDaniel introduced a bill in the legislature to make it mandatory that all men in the state of legal age purchase an AR-15, apparently to make a point about government mandates. Yes, he’s that stupid, and he’s an elected official. And remember that story about the ex-felons in Florida who were given their rights to vote back by the passage of Amendment 4 to their state constitution. Well Republicans in Florida are seeking to yet again put obstacles in place to make it more difficult for them to exercise their voting rights. Which begs the question, at least for Spann, WHAT THE HELL IS #ADOS doing that’s different from what the Republicans are trying to do? And a woman in Connecticut had to resign her position at a public school district after her racist outburst and assault in a grocery store. Basically, we have a theme tonight, can you see it? LOL And of course we close out the show with our AssHat & Champ of The Week announcements. So y’all know what time it is, it’s time for Real Talk, ALL THE TIME right here on The Spann Report!

(Ep. 243) #TSRP “Affluent Action”

On episode 243 of #TSRP We get right In The Newsas the big story this week is the college admission scandal that has led to over 50 indictments. Included in those indictments are actresses Felicity Huffman, and Lori Loughlin. And in an update to the Jussie Smollett saga, the two brothers who participated in his alleged ruse, are now saying they were taking advantage of by someone they trusted. But were they though??? Then we’re off to Sexy Time, where a woman is said to have had such a reaction to the oral sex that she received, that it caused her to have a stroke! Do you want head like that? Then we’re off to Blue Blazes, as an armed great grandmother showed a would be robber she’s not the one to mess with, as she used her firearm to scare him into hiding in one the closets in her home until police arrived. A woman was angry with workers at a Burger King restaurant who apparently messed up her order by adding tomatoes, and her reaction was way over the top to put it mildly. Also, a woman who is seeking to take the stigma out of a woman having a period, chose a very unorthodox way of doing it. Then, we’re on to Proud To Be An American, as Boulder Colorado police pull their guns on a man who was cleaning his yard, and a white Texas teenage girl gets no jail time after falsely accusing 3 black men of raping her. We then get to wrapping it up with ourAssHat & Champ of The Week announcements. So let’s get right into it with the Real Talk, ALL THE TIME here on The Spann Report!

On episode 242 of #TSRP we’re joined by Tennielle Clark, a personal development and lifestyle coach. We’ll get to know her, and find out what actually goes into becoming a life coach, and who are the prime candidates for some coaching! We then hop In The News, as Alex Trebeck has just announced that he has been diagnosed with stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer. Hopefully he can beat the odds and that terrible disease. R. Kelly is back in the news as he open up during an explosive interview with Gayle King on CBS about the current charges against him, and whether or not he actually does have a cult. But should that interview have ever happened in the first place? We then start wrapping it up with our AssHat & Champ of The Week announcements.

(Ep. 241) #TSRP “Oh For Fu*k’s Sake!”

On episode 241 of #TSRP Spann is joined by the host of The Mocha Minutes Podcast and friend of the show Stephanie! We get to know Stephanie and find out more about her show, and then we hop right In The News, as New York City is considering banning the use of marijuana screening as a condition of employment. Theories are all over the place as speculation continues on whether or not Jussie Smollett may have staged his own assault. We’ll talk through the latest one. And Bernie Sanders has once again decided to run for President, joining an already crowded Democratic field. Is he the favorite now? Then we go on over to Blue Blazes as Michael Avenatti, the attorney who represented Stormy Daniels against Donald Trump, says he has a client who was in possession of a tape that allegedly shows R. Kelly involved in sex acts with another 14 year old girl. Could this be what finally gets R. Kelly out of the paint? And yet another high end fashion company is coming under fire for their clothing designs. The latest company is Burberry who created a hoodie with a noose around the neck? Are these company playing a twisted racist game of Oneupsmanship? And finally we get to Proud To Be An American, where a judge overturned the $37 Million awarded to the family of Korryn Gains after her tragic death. Text messages show possible collusion between police and right wing extremist in Oregon, and a West Virginia Delegate has compared the LGBT community to the KKK. And then we roll on up outta here! So lets get into it fam, with Real Talk, ALL THE TIME here on The Spann Report!

(Ep. 240) #TSRP “Congratulations, You Played Yourself”

On episode 240 of #TSRP we get back to our regularly scheduled program after a very special episode of The Special Hotep Unit. Today we talk a little bit about Valentine’s Day as the Spann’s went to see Toni Braxton, and SWV at the Fox Theater in Detroit, and of course Detroit antics ensued. We then get the show rolling by hopping In The News, as reports of suspects being arrested in the Jussie Smollett assault case hit the news, and then right after that, those suspects were released. But one has to wonder why this story is playing the way it is in certain segments of the black community. Former Chicago Police Officer Jason Van Dyke was assaulted in Prison this week, and his wife calls a news conference to demand his safety. We then roll over to Blue Blazes, as video in an elevator shows Lil Bow Wow acting very aggressively towards his girlfriend before the infamous fight that led to the mugshot of his face being scratched up. An Indian man is suing his parents for giving birth to him WITHOUT HIS CONSENT??? HUH??? And in Southfield Michigan, the city council is voting on whether or not is should be legal for the existence of a sex doll brothel within their city limits. Then it’s off to Proud To Be An American, as the legislators in Arizona are considering measures to have porn considered a public health crisis. Yes, you read that right, Porn a public health crisis. In Colorado, a sports apparel store is going out of business, after the owner of that store refused to sell Nike products because of their endorsement deal with Colin Kaepernick. And Kamala Harris appeared on The Breakfast Club this past week, and made eye brows raise all over the country over her admission to smoking weed, and the kinds of music she listens too. Many have compared her appearance to Hillary Clinton’s and accused her of “pandering” to the black community. Even Fox News, and Megan McCain hopped in on the madness. But was it what they were really making it out to be? And then we round everything out with our AssHat & Champ of The Week announcements. So we got quite a bit to get to as get rolling with episode 240 of The Spann Report!

He put out a video on the internet of the supposed site of the new academy for young black boys. Did he REALLY do it? We’re we all wrong for questioning him?

(Ep. 238) #TSRP “Brews & Bops”

On episode 238 of #TSRP we are joined by Deirdre of the Where’s My 40 Acres? and Craft Beer Killah podcast! We’ll pick Deirdre’s brain about how she got into podcasting, the need for more voices of black women voices in podcasting, her love of music, and how she got into the craft beer scene. And of course ya’ll know ya boy got to get some recommendations! Then we get In The News, as a new Presidential candidate hops in the ring with a campaign pledge to get black people reparations to the tune of $100 Billion! Cory Booker has also announced that he will be running for President as well. Which begs the question, will his campaign see as much scrutiny as that of Sen. Kamala Harris? And Atlanta based rapper 21 Savage, was arrested and accused of being a British national who overstayed his Visa. He now faces deportation to the United Kingdom. Then we’re off to Blue Blazes, as Lil Bow Wow, was involved in a physical altercation with a young woman that left him looking like he pissed off Wolverine, and to the arrest of both him, and the woman involved. A man is hospitalized after injecting himself with his own semen to treat back pain, yes, you read that correctly. And an Oakland County Michigan man was arrested after making an appearance on the Netflix series Dope, where he proclaimed himself one of the biggest dealers of Molly in the Metro Detroit area. We take a break from Proud To Be An American, and head straight to our AssHat and Champ of The Week announcements, and we bounce! So y’all know what it is, kick it with Mr. Spann and Deirdre right here onThe Spann Report!
