(Ep. 250) #TSRP “Rodney’s First Flight””

On episode 250 of #TSRP we hop right In The News, as the publisher of Linda Fairstein, the D.A. during the Central Park 5 case has dropped her because of the negative publicity surrounding the Netflix mini-series When They See Us. This comes after she’s already been forced out as Trustee at Vassar College, her alma mater. Nevada has banned “employment discrimination” against those who consume cannabis. And YouTube has finally decided to rid it’s website of thousands of videos with “extreme views.” But do we really trust YouTube with this?

Then we move on to Blue Blazes, as a Coroner has claimed that a woman has seemingly passed away due to her use of marijuana. You can O.D. on weed??? Kwame Kilpatrick is in the news for his latest attempt to get out of prison. This time, writing a glowingly praise filled letter to Donald Trump. Do y’all think it’s going to work? Ava Duvernay, Oprah Winfrey, and Gayle King have all stated that they would like if y’all would stop calling them Auntie. So why is it so hard for people to stop? And in sad news, the rapper Bushwick Bill of the Houston Rap group, The Geto Boyz has passed away after a battle with Pancreatic Cancer. He was 52 years old. His group mate, Brad Jordan AKA Scarface in a turn of events has decided to run for the city council in the city of Houston.

And in Sexy Time, we get news that there are a lot of Senior Citizens having sex in the city. New York City that is. The only problem is, getting these seniors to practice safe sex has been a bit of a challenge, as most of them ain’t wrapping it up.

Off to Proud To Be An American we go, as Pride Month has kicked off this June. Unfortunately, and predictably, it’s being met with rampant bigotry. We start in Boston, as the city has granted a permit for a “Straight Pride Parade.” And the organizers have just named their Grand Marshal, Milo Yiannopoulos. The right-wing provocateur formerly of Breitbart “News.” Then in Detroit, Pride participants were met with armed neo-nazis marching through the downtown streets shouting anti-LGBTQIA rhetoric. And United States Embassies around the world are reporting that the Trump Administration has barred them from flying Rainbow flags along with the American flag during this month at the varying embassies. Basically, America isn’t giving anybody of sense a reason to be proud right now.

We then wrap everything up with our AssHat & Champ of The Week Announcements. So we’ve got a lot to get through. But we got this! So kick back and enjoy episode 250 of The Spann Report!

(Ep. 248) #TSRP “Ayesha Got Em Goin!”

The Spanns are back on the mic for episode 248 of #TSRP and man do we got some stuff to cover. Mr. Spann is back after having been suspended from Facebook for the 2nd time in 30 day, hence why there haven’t been any shows. Facebook seems to be trying to go into the direction of clamping down on offensive speech, but what do you do when the speech you’re clamping down on is pointing out the hatred being spewed towards someone pointing out said hatred? We then get to some Listener Feedback, as a comment was left on our website for episode 246.

We then hop In The News, as Facebook surprised many when they decided to ban Minister Louis Farrakhan along with many Right Wing Provocateurs, like Alex Jones, and Milo Yiannopoulos. Is it wrong that he’s grouped with those folks, or is he right where he belongs? Keeping up with Facebook, a City of Dearborn Michigan employee was fired from his job after a rather bigoted comment he made on an article featuring a Muslim model wearing a burkini while being featured in Sports Illustrated. Was his free speech violated, or did the city of Dearborn do the right thing in letting him go? And in Minnesota, the Governor has just signed a law that makes Marital Rape against the law. Yes, you read that right, in 2019, it is now illegal to rape your wife in Minnesota.

And off we go to Blue Blazes, as Ayesha Curry had the social media world in a tizzy after comments she made on the Facebook Watch show Red Table Talk. In the episode she spoke on how she sometimes felt insecure in the amount of male attention she gets in comparison to the attention her husband Steph Curry seems to get being an NBA Star. Many people took offense to what she said, but was it more a bit of projecting from the social media world, or is it just more the fact that folks still haven’t forgotten past statements she’s made about getting attention from the opposite sex as a married woman? In other Blue Blazes news, the hotline that was established for women who may have been sexually abused by R. Kelly, is seeing a bit of abuse of it’s own, as many women, presumably R. Kelly fans are calling the hotline to share their own sexual encounters with the R&B singer. And Underground King Bun B was in the news recently as he shot a would be home invader. Do you think Bun B should have done anything differently?

Then it’s Proud To Be An American time, where the man who threatened the lives of both President Barack Obama, and Congresswoman Maxine Waters, received a 4 year prison sentence. Prior to his sentencing, his family asked the judge for leniency, did this sentence strike the right balance? Twitter apparently has an algorithm available to them to curb the activity of White Supremacist on their platform, but there’s just one catch. Seems like if they implement the algorithm, it will disproportionately affect many members of the Republican Party, so they’ve declined to put it in place. Crazy right??? And in Georgia, Governor Brian Kemp has signed one of the most restrictive abortion bills in the nation into law. The Heartbeat Bill will restrict women from having abortions performed in the state of Georgia as early as six weeks into their pregnancy. A time where many women may not even know they’re pregnant. The biggest question regarding this is, why are these state laws going up so frequently? We’re going to break it all down.

And of course y’all know before we go, we’ve got to announce our AssHat & Champ of The Weeks! So let’s get to it. We’ve been gone when we didn’t want to be, and we got a lot to say, right here, right now here on The Spann Report!

(Ep. 247) #TSRP “Lizzie Got A Plan!”

Episode 247 of The Spann Report is here, and we start the show hopping right In The News, as Joe Biden has officially thrown his hat in the ring for the Democratic nomination for President. He’s also spoken with Anita Hill to apologize to her for his role in the Clarence Thomas Supreme Court confirmation hearings, and hired political commentator Symone Sanders as a campaign adviser. But will it be enough to shore up black support to a skeptical contingent of black women voters? Also in the news, the Florida House of Representatives led by Republicans are looking to make former felons pay fines and restitution before being able to cast a ballot. Doesn’t that sound eerily close to a poll tax? And Presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren has unveiled a plan to eliminate student loan debt for millions. But what are the details of the plan, and could there be any unintended negative consequences to implementing it?

We then move along to Blue Blazes as we’re confused as to whether or not this is the work of the Special Hotep Unit, or the religious right. Probably a bit of both as leaders in a Hebrew Isrealite church have been indicted after using the church funds as their own personal slush fund. The USDA seems to believe that there is an “acceptable amount” of fecal matter to be had in meat up for sale. Could this be the last straw and make you want to go vegan? And could Remy Ma be making a return trip to jail after allegedly bopping another Love & Hip Hop cast mate in the face and blacking her eye? Or is this just another story line for the show next year?

Then it’s off to Proud To Be An American, where in Washington DC, gentrifiers have found themselves in crosshairs of Howard University students who are taking offense to their campus being used as a dog park. A Pastor and school administrator kicked to children out of a Christian school because their mother “committed adultery.” Her children don’t have the same father. But really though, is this what Jesus would do? And a militia leader in New Mexico, who made news as his militia was illegally detaining migrants coming into the country from Mexico, was found out to be a felon, and breaking the law by even owning a firearm. Also, he’s been arrested multiple times for impersonating a police officer. So how in the hell was he still out on the streets?

Then of course you know we close the show with our AssHat & Champ of The Week. So let’s get to it, right here and right now on this week on The Spann Report Podcast!

#TSRP (Ep. 246) “What We’ve Learned…

On episode 246 of #TSRP Mr. Spann is back to talk about why the hell was he gone! Nah for real, we’re going to delve into why Spann was banned from Facebook for three days, and how that, along with the death of Nipsey Hussle brought a few things to Spann’s attention that he might be slipping back into old habits. We then hop In The News as the long awaited Mueller Report has finally been released, and it’s revealed some things to us that don’t really surprise those who’ve been paying attention, but it leaves us with this question. What is supposed to happen next? Also in the news, Chicago gets it’s first black woman Mayor with the election of Lori Lightfoot. And the one question Spann has surrounding this election is, what does this mean for the South and West Sides of Chicago?

We then move on to Blue Blazes, as a man from Grand Rapids, MI is suing his parents over their getting rid of his porn collection! In another story of ridiculousness, two men from Rogers, AK thought it would be a good idea to shoot each other while wearing a bulletproof vest. They were both arrested. And the richest man in the world is STILL the richest man in the world, however his now ex-wife is the third richest woman in the world after the Jeff & Mackenzie Bezos divorce was made final.

Then it’s on to Proud To Be An American, as a Republican lawmaker by the name of Tony Tinderholt re-introduces legislation that would call for the death penalty for any woman who has an abortion procedure performed. We find out through polling from The Pew Research Center, Gallup, and Quinnipiac University, that most Americans tend to agree with Democrats on political issues. But how then is that not represented in our current government? And a 21 year old woman in Wyandotte, MI was arrested after injuring 3 police officers while they tried to take her into custody. Just saying, we know her name was Keisha.

And then we close out the show with our Asshat & Champ of The Week announcements. So get ready for a long ride, because we’ve been gone for damn near 3 weeks, and we’ve got a lot to say this week right here on The Spann Report!

(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!
