(Ep. 260) #TSRP “False Choices”

powered by Crowdcast

Here on episode 260 of #TSRP get ready for a marathon session, as we are joined by friend of the show, Ashanti, no not that one. Ashanti kicks it with us to get through the stories of the week. And we get things kicked off In The News where, there continues to be fallout over Jay Z’s joint venture with the NFL. There were many rumors that Jay was in position to become the owner of an NFL franchise, but how true were those rumors? While this entire thing is going on, many folks are now publicly speaking out in defense of Jay, while coming at Colin Kaepernick’s neck, but do we really have to choose between the two? We also get news outta New York that the officer who killed Eric Garner will be fired by the NYPD as a result of the killing of Garner 5 years later. Predictably, the “Police Benevolent Association” blasted the decision as a bowing down to political pressure, and the wills of “cop haters.”

We’re then off to Blue Blazes, where the children of Brian McKnight took to social media to blast their father, whom they claim turned his back on them. Brian McKnight then also took to social media to defend himself, we’ll discuss how fame affects how those on the outside looking in take to private issues of celebrities brought to the public. A Greyhound bus driver quit mid trip, leaving passengers stranded in Abilene Texas for nine hours. And in a Sexy Time Segment, somebody needs to hide the Viagra, as six senior citizens were arrested in Connecticut for sex acts in a local park. Maybe Shady Acres ran out of activities?

Then it’s time for Proud To Be An American, as a murder conviction was overturned in Michigan, after it was found out that one of the jurors used the N-Word during deliberations. We’ll watch his reaction when the local news shows up to ask him about it. Another video shows a mother trying to keep her 15 year old son from being arrested, after he threatens to execute a mass shooting while playing a video game. And a white woman in Arkansas held four black teens at gun point as they went door to door trying to raise money for their football team.

Then we close out the show with our AssHat & Champ of The Week announcements. For real this time, we got some. So kick back and relax with me and the homie Ashanti as we kick it with the Real Talk, ALL THE TIME right here on The Spann Report!

(Ep. 259) #TSRP “Fill In The Blank Activism”

powered by Crowdcast

For episode 259 of #TSRP, we’re joined by friend of the show Cook, from the HIGHly Inappropriate Podcast! We’ll be catching up with Cook as she embarks on a new podcast, and how it will be different from what she was doing before. Then we get into some of Spann’s Random Thoughts to kick things off.

In The News, we find out that Jay Z has stuck a deal with the NFL to provide musical entertainment for the NFL’s signature events, including the coveted Super Bowl Half Time Show. After the announcement of this joint venture, both the NFL, and Jay Z have been getting a ton of backlash. But what exactly are fighting for now? That’s it, that’s all we’re talking about In The News.

Off to Blue Blazes we go as someone’s ungrateful son pushed his brand new BMW into a river because he wanted a Jaguar instead. A white man was arrested for spitting in the face of a black woman during a request for Slavery Role Play during sex. But did they arrest the right person? And a bank robber in the Detroit area takes his loot to the casino and wins more money, wait till you hear what he asks the police when they caught up with him.

The Special Hotep Unit makes a return after news got out that Tariq Nasheed has been banned from the United Kingdom because they say he’s not good for the public there. Nasheed has recently been doing press for his newest movie Hidden Colors 5.

We then go to Proud To Be An American, where two black prospective home buyers are shocked to find a KKK application and Confederate Flags all over the home of a Muskegon Michigan Police Officer. Speaking of the police, it has now been determined by Rutgers University that Police Violence is the leading cause of death for black men. And in Royal Oak Michigan, the police there had to apologize to a black man after detaining him for the crime of “staring at a white woman” Murica! Right?

We close the show like we always do, with our Asshat & Champ of The Week Announcements. So come kick it with us as we talk ourselves through this craziness here on The Spann Report!

(Ep. 258) #TSRP “This Call Is Being Recorded”

powered by Crowdcast

Today’s episode has us opening up In The News, where in Canton Michigan, a 10 year old boy was charged with assault after playing dodgeball with a classmate. The classmate suffered facial injuries as a result, but is charging a 10 year old with a crime a step too far? And also in the news, the Democratic Debates came to Detroit, we’ll go over a few of the highlights of the event, and break down what it could mean in the future for the candidates going forward.

Then we get to Blue Blazes, as a white man attacked a black father at a swimming pool twice, and got knocked out BOTH times! Police are currently seeking to find a woman who they charged with urinating on potatoes in a Walmart store. And a 16 year old just became a multimillionaire after winning the grand prize at the Fortnite World Cup!

Then it’s off to Proud To Be An American, where Candace Owens is seeking to debate Cardi B on politics for $250K after it became known that Cardi B was throwing her support behind Bernie Sanders. A gun store in North Carolina is under fire after putting up a billboard with the faces of Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Ayanna Pressley in an effort to sell guns. And lastly, Ronald Regan was caught on tape on the phone with President Richard Nixon talking real greasy about African delegates at the United Nations.

And as we close out every show, we’ve got our AssHat & Champ of The Week announcements. So take some time out, put your feet up, and get in on this discussion this week right here on The Spann Report!

(Ep. 257) #TSRP “Equibux

powered by Crowdcast

We get things kicked off on episode 257 with a bit of Listener Feedback, as Spann responds to an email sent in by one of our listeners. Then we go In The News, were a Pennsylvania school board rejects a donors offer to pay off the lunch debt of students in the district. Equifax, one of the three credit reporting bureaus in the United States has reached a settlement with the US Government in the amount of $700 Million. What could that mean for you, and do you get a piece of that settlement? And Democratic Presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren has introduced new legislation to eliminate student loan debt with The Student Loan Debt Relief Act of 2019. It stands no chance of passing with Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell standing in the way of it, but if she were to win, could this be THE path forward for millions of Americans? And Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, just might have been caught saying how she really feels about a police union official during a city council meeting this past week. Was she out of line?

Then we’re off to Blue Blazes, as somehow, and someway, dudes found a way to blame Lela Rochon for photos surfacing of her husband, movie director Antoine Fuqua, sharing a kiss with “family friend” Nicole Murphy. A man became a real life Miles Morales, as he scaled 15 stories up the side of a burning building to rescue his mother. And R. Kelly’s Crisis Manager, Darnell Johnson has quit, after a bizarre interview with CBS.

Then it’s on to Proud To Be An American, where Kathy Zhu, the former Miss Michigan pageant contestant who was stripped of her title after some controversial tweets she made came to light to pageant officials, will now speak at a Women For Trump rally in the state. Is this a case of mixing up your politics with racial attitudes? Nazi Nancy also known as Nancy Goodman was caught on video calling black women whom she deemed “too loud” niggers after they told her their money spends the same. She’s also unapologetic and doubled down by saying she would do it again. Is this what some black folks mean when they say they want their racist out in the open? And in Mississippi, three Ole Miss students have been suspended by their fraternity, not the school, after a picture of them posing with a shotgun, and an AR-15 around a bullet ridden historical marker of the spot where Emmitt Till was found, surfaced on social media. What, if anything should happen to these dudes.

And of course like we always do, we close out the show with our AssHat & Champ of the Week Announcements. So let’s get it cracking and DO IT LIVE with the Real Talk, ALL The Time here on The Spann Report!

(Ep. 256) #TSRP “30 Years & $70 Million Eh?

powered by Crowdcast

On episode 256 of #TSRP We’ve got more R. Kelly In The News, as the young lady believed to have been in the infamous sex tape with R. Kelly that led to his 2008 trial, is now cooperating with the prosecutors in his current situation with the Feds over sex trafficking, and possession of child porn. His current live in girlfriends, Azriel Clary, and Joycelyn Savage are however putting out videos thanking his fans for their continued support? We’ll break that down. The US Government is apparently running out of money faster than they expected to says Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin. And somehow Democrats are to blame? And Presidential candidate, Kamala Harris wants to make everyone more credit worthy by making cell phone, rent, and utility bill payments a standard part of your credit score. Could this be the path forward, or could this hurt more people than intended? We’ll sift through this as well.

In Blue Blazes, The FaceApp is has gone viral as many were posting pictures of themselves as senior citizens using the app’s aging filter. But security concerns popped up once folks found out that FaceApp has Russian developers, who could use their images and likeness for a variety of different ad based reasons. Have we all overreacted once learning this information, and just how many other companies have we given this level of access to concerning our personal images? Is anything online really free??? A$AP Rocky is in jail in Sweden, and his representatives are speaking out about the horrible conditions where he’s being held. Many people remember his statements from 2016 concerning Black Lives Matter, and the protest happening in Ferguson Missouri after the death of Michael Brown, and they’re not very sympathetic to his plight. Are his apathetic chickens coming home to roost? Eddie Murphy has reportedly been offered $70 Million for a stand up comedy special after 30 years since his last stand up special Raw. Is there really that much pent up demand for Eddie Murphy stand up in 2019, and could this also lay waste to the argument that Mo’Nique was crazy to ask for more money based on her current relevancy as a stand up comedian? And a mother was arrested after she posted video of her daughter licking a tongue depressor at the doctor’s office and putting it back in the jar. When will this stupid stuff end?

Then it’s Proud To Be An American time where Tennessee Governor, Bill Lee signed a proclamation for “Nathan Bedford Forrest Day to be observed in the state. A white customer at a grocery store tells a Puerto Rican customer that she “hopes Trump deports you…” because that woman spoke Spanish in the store. Also, a gas station clerk asked Latino customers about their immigration status while NOT serving them in Naperville, Illinois. He has since been fired since that video went viral. And a Congressman Mike Kelly of Pennsylvania has come out and said that as a person of color, he’s not offended by Donald Trump’s recent racist remarks about Congresswomen Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Rashida Tlaib. Which is curious for the most obvious of reasons, but we’ll break it down.

Of course we close it all down with our AssHat & Champ of The Week announcements. So let’s get on with it, right here on The Spann Report Podcast!

(Ep. 255) #TSRP “As The PeeHive Turns”

On episode 255 of #TSRP we jet right over In The News, as Donald Trump associate, Jeffery Epstein has been indicted with sex trafficking charges, and his arrest could cause a lot of headaches for politicians on both sides of the partisan divide. R. Kelly finds himself in MORE legal trouble. This is more of the Federal variety as he too faces sex trafficking charges, on top of his possession of child porn. Could this finally be the end for the leader of the PeeHive? Minnesotans are taking trips over to Canada. But not trips of leisure, more like trips of necessity as they try to find affordable insulin. And after Donald Trump’s July 4th Parade, the Mayor of Washington D.C. says that the city’s security fund for the year has been exhausted. Will D.C. meet the same fate as other cities where the security demands of Donald Trump, and the bills they incur go unpaid?

Then we’re on to Blue Blazes, where drivers in Georgia were surprised to find money flying in the air on I-285! Many of them stopped to grab the cash, but could they end up going to jail for taking the money? There is yet another Blue Bell Ice Cream licker out here in these streets, only this time, they don’t have the luxury of being able to fall back on being young as to why they were so stupid in trying this prank. A man hiding out from the police might have gotten away with his crime, if it wasn’t for his bad guts. And in Detroit, the AfroFuture Fest has made headlines all across the country for their pricing structure. Was this a real example of reverse racism, or could it just be a token of reparations?

Which brings us to Proud To Be An American, where Mitch McConnell tried to be cute when asked about his ancestors owning slaves. He likened himself to Obama, by saying he too has ancestors that owned slaves, and that Obama was also against reparations. But was that exactly Obama’s position? In a case of deja vu, we have the story of another white man killing a teen over rap music. The man justified it by saying the music made him fear for his life. Yes you read that right. 4 Maryland teens thought it would be a cool senior prank to paint racist graffiti all over the school. You might not believe how these little racist got caught. And in a story not typical of the segment. A woman scammed her job in a way not many would have thought about. She got caught, but you’ve just got to marvel at her ingenuity.

And of course we wrap everything up with out Asshat & Champ of The Week announcements. We got a lot to cover y’all, so let’s get to it right here and right now on The Spann Report!

(Ep. 254) #TSRP “We On The Lodge With It?”

Episode 254 of #TSRP starts right In The News as the woman who appeared in the viral video licking the top of an open ice cream container, and putting it back on the shelf has been identified. Could she really be facing up to 20 years in jail? Donald Chump seems to be trying an end around maneuver around the Supreme Court, as they debate the constitutionality of adding a citizenship question to the 2020 Census. He plans to try to get the question on the forms by Executive Order. And after a group of young people shut down the Lodge Freeway in Detroit to perform donuts and burnouts, the viral video of the even has resulted in 1 arrested, 6 others being sought by law enforcement, the woman who posted the video now being harassed, and t-shirts being sold and songs being made. Only in Detroit???

We move on to Blue Blazes, where the organizers of the Straight Pride Parade called in a bomb threat over glitter. African American actress Halle Bailey has been cast as Ariel in the new live action Disney movie The Little Mermaid, and white people across the internet lost their collective minds. And Lil Nas X came out as a gay man. Prompting many to start trying to reinterpret his music. Weird I know.

Then it’s off to Proud To Be An American, where a Hawaii man went to his prison sentence hearing wearing black face. Do you think they threw the book at him? And Arizona Governor Doug Doucey has cancelled all incentives for Nike to move a manufacturing facility to the state after they cancelled the release of a pair of shoes featuring the Betsy Ross designed United States flag. Nike cancelled the release after Colin Kaepernick and many other complained about it’s connection to slavery era America, and it’s current appropriation by white nationalist groups.

Then of course before we leave you, we got to give you our AssHat & Champ of The Week announcements! So lets get to it people with the Real Talk, ALL The Time, here on The Spann Report!

(Ep. 253) #TSRP “When The $h*t Hits The Stand”

Here on episode 253 of #TSRP we hop right In The News. As many as 94 police officers from both the St. Louis and Philadelphia Police Departments have been sidelined or put on restrictive duty after an investigation found many of those officers posting racist status updates and memes on Facebook. Many more could be met with the same fate as three other city police departments were included in the investigation. The Jussie Smollett saga continues, as a Judge has ruled to re-open the investigation into his alleged hate crime hoax, and Chicago Police have released all of the evidence they have against him to the public. And Presidential candidate and South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigeig is under fire after a deadly police shooting in his town. What could this mean for his Presidential hopes, and has his previous comments about “identity politics” affected his response to this incident?

Then we move on to Blue Blazes, as Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood star Teairra Mari has been arrested for drunk driving. It’s alleged that she was driving a car with only three wheels y’all. In Detroit, a pair of 61 year old twins stepped into a Coney Island restaurant, and shot up the place over fried mushrooms? And in Newton County Georgia, a set of Crips have suddenly popped up. Or have they??? Some new tagging may suggest so, but something about it just doesn’t seem right. And a man went before a judge and he came bearing gifts. Only NOBODY would want what he was freely giving. We even get some Cheaper To Keep Her, and Sexy Time!

We then go to Proud To Be And American, where a Michigan hotel is now offering free lodging for women who travel to the state to have an abortion. In Illinois, the new Recreational Marijuana law will vacate over 770K Marijuana related convictions. And in Fresno, CA a church lost their ability to be a polling place because of their Black Lives Matter banner outside of the church. They’re now suing to get it back. Will they prevail?

And then of course you know, we will be closing out the show with our AssHat & Champ of The Week announcements. So let’s get to it with the Real Talk, All The Time right here on The Spann Report!
