(Ep. 236) #TSRP “Smoketh Thou Shalt Haveth”

On episode 236 of #TSRP we’re bringing the show live to Facebook, and we hop right In The News, as Empire star Jussie Smollett was assaulted in Chicago allegedly by a couple of purported Trump supporters. His assault is being investigated as a “possible” hate crime. R. Kelly is now under investigation by the F.B.I. for possible sex trafficking, and Kamala Harris has announced her candidacy for the Democratic nomination for President. And have scientist finally cracked the code on a cure for Cancer? an Israeli pharmaceutical company is saying they are within a year of doing it. Is it too good to be true? Then we’re off to Blue Blazes, as Tarji P. Henson is catching some heat over an Instagram post that many interpreted as a defense of R. Kelly. She’s since come out and addressed the issue, but is she playing us all for fools? Nick Cannon was trending over the social media streets after a clip from his podcast started circulating about his idea of why black men pursue white women, and ooo wee, it’s a doozy And Terry Crews is sick of the jokes, and he rhetorically asked comedian DL Hughley should he smack him over statements he’s made concerning Crews being the victim of sexual assault. DL responded on his radio show, but his response sounds quite familiar, we’ll delve into why. We move on to Cheaper To Keep Her, as Detroit Tigers 1st Baseman is ordered to pay his mistress and mother of 2 of his children over $20K a month in Child Support. Then we’re off to Proud To Be An American as protesters in Huntington Woods Michigan continue to protest the existence of Drag Queen Story Time at the library. Many of whom don’t even live in Huntington Woods. And apparently, Americans are not having enough babies to replace themselves, we’ll examine why that could be, and then we wrap up the show with our AssHat & Champ of The Week. So let’s get right to it with the Real Talk right here on The Spann Report!

(Episode 234) #TSRP “8 Years In”

Yooooo! It’s the 8th Anniversary of The Spann Report! On January 8th of 2011, the very first episode of #TSRP was uploaded into Podomatic, and ya man Spann dipped his feet into these podcasting waters, and hasn’t looked back! So it would be apropos if we do a little reflecting on how far we’ve come along the way. From Spann starting the podcast with a laptop and a headset, and a teleprompter program, and audacity crashing on him all the time. To doing weekly live shows with no script, speaking to the issues of the day, and expanding on that, and producing more shows on to complement The Spann Report, and hopefully grow even more. After we get the warm and fuzzies out of the way, it’s time to get back to the business of what we do. And we hop In The News, as the partial government continues, government employees are working without being paid. And TSA screeners are calling in sick to work because of it. Ellen DeGeneres is catching heat for supporting Kevin Hart, and lobbying to get him to host the Oscars. Michigan Representative, Rashida Tlaib is under fire for referring to Donald Trump as a MFer. And an assaulted McDonald’s worker finally speaks out about the fight that she had with a customer over a straw that went viral. Then we’re off to Blue Blazes, as it seems that Madonna may have been a bit unhappy with her backside, but were injections really the answer? People are really trying to make re-usable toilet paper a thing. Yes REALLY. Kevin Spacey is in court to face charges that he groped a teenage bus boy, and did Erica Mena, and Safaree Samuels secretly get married already? And Birdman, and Toni Braxton called it quits on their engagement. We should all be able to breath again now that that craziness is over. Then it’s time for Proud To Be An American, where we find one of those folks we hoped we left behind in 2018, a Black Republican getting on national TV to suggest that those on public assistance aren’t looking for jobs anymore, they’re looking for porn. And a Manhattan judge has just ruled that it’s perfectly legal to throw Trump supporters out of bars. But is this the right thing to do? And of course, we wrap up the show with our AssHat & Champ of The Week announcements. Soo much to get into and cover, and that’s exactly what we’ll be doing on episode 234 of The Spann Report!

(Ep. 233) #TSRP “House Hunters: Special Hotep Edition”

Happy New Year! Welcome to the first episode of #TSRP of 2019! We start the new year off with some of Spann’s Random Thoughts, and reflections from the holiday season, and then we go into the top 5 things that happened in the world that should be left right back in 2018. We then hop right In The News, as Michelle Obama was named the most Admired Woman of 2018, a Pennsylvania court has ruled that a mother’s drug use during her pregnancy isn’t child abuse. And a Ring Doorbell catches two would-be home invaders on video. We move on to Blue Blazes, where a man who’s dubbed himself “The Sperminator”is donating his sperm to women all over the world. Even rendering his services in public restrooms. And has Sesame Street gone rater R? Video has been raging across social media of Sesame Street character Grover apparently dropping an F-Bomb. But is that really what he said? And in Special Hotep Unit, we’re introduced to Joel Fedd, who tried to claim a home worth around $500K in Georgia, because he’s a member of the “Indigenous Moors.” The home was his attempt at “claiming back the land.” We’ve got Cheaper To Keep Her news too, as Love & Hip Hop stars Safaree Samuels and Erica Mena are now engaged. But is this a real relationship, or just a ploy for yet another “very special Love & Hip Hop wedding?” And in Proud To Be American, the shooter at Parkland Florida’s Stoneman-Douglass High School is revealed to have been a staunch Trump Supporter, A racist Oregonian woman attacks a black family over a parking space, and while holiday shopping in Macy’s a customer got upset because two store employees were speaking in Arabic with each other while serving him. And of course, we’ve got ourAssHat & Champ of The Week announcements to get 2019 started right. So let’s get 2019 cracking with some podcasting yall.

(Ep. 232) #TSRP “Too Much Dip On Ya Chip”

On the final episode of #TSRP for 2019 we got a lot to cover. We start the show with some listener feedback as we got a few emails after the last episode concerning Kevin Hart debacle. We then hop In The News, as The Betsy DeVos Department of Education cancels over $150 Million in student loan debt after being sued for delays. Male birth control is on the horizon, and it’s a shoulder rub away. A report came out from the New York Times that during the 2016 Presidential election, that Russian operatives targeted Black voters in an effort to dissuade them from voting. And the government is currently shut down after Donald Trump refused to sign a funding bill, because it didn’t include monies for the border wall he said Mexico would be paying for. Then, we’re off to Blue Blazes, with Chris Rock getting dragged to all hell after video resurfaced of him defending Louis CK’s use of the word “Nigger.” Millennials in China are sending nude pictures of themselves as collateral to secure loans, and singer Jacqueese is catching the wrath of old school R&B heads after he proclaimed himself, King Of R&B. The Special Hotep Unit makes a return as Umar Johnson comes out from the shadows to attack Tyler Perry for the ways he spends his money. Namely the paying off of Christmas layaways of poorer families. Then, it’s off to Proud To Be American where a bank called the police on a black man for trying to cash his paycheck. A jury acquits a man who blasted Fu*k The Police right in front of the police. A bill in the Michigan Senate is seeking to end childhood marriage in the state, and in Huntington Woods Michigan, disgruntled parents are seeking to put an end to Drag Queen Story Time at the library because they think the practice is “perverse.” We’ll be covering all of that and of we’ll have our Annual AssHat of The Year Class Graduation, and ourChamps of The Year announcements. Lots to get into, so let’s get right to it right here and right now on The Spann Report!

(Ep. 231) #TSRP “You See That Hill, I’m Going To Die There”

On Episode 231 of #TSRP We don’t have many segments, in fact, we’ve got one topic to talk about, and that’s Kevin Hart, and the reason why he’s no longer hosting the Oscars. But this particular episode isn’t just about Kevin Hart, it’s about the culture surrounding us that makes us believe that Kevin Hart, and his non-apology apology is OK, and that he did absolutely nothing wrong, and will stand up loud and wrong defending homophobia, and bigotry, while believe that we can’t be participants in said homophobia and bigotry. Whole lot of preaching going onto say the least on episode 231 of The Spann Report!

(Ep. 230) #TSRP “Cheaper To Keep Her… Or Him Too!”

On episode 230 of #TSRP Spann wastes no time, and just dives right In The News, as Michigan Senators in the state legislature vote to gut minimum wage hikes, and paid sick leave reforms that the voters of Michigan wanted in a lame duck session. In North Carolina, voter fraud has become a huge deal, but the fraud is coming from the candidate of the party who made such a big fuss about it. And former Vice President Joe Biden may have unofficially thrown his hat into the 2020 Presidential race by declaring that he’s the most qualified for the position. But is he the candidate the voters want? Then we’re off to Blue Blazes, as Payless Shoe Store pulled off the finesse of the year by opening up a luxury shoe store, but did they though??? Joy Behar was ready to put young whipper snapper Meghan McCain in her place after a very tense exchange during a taping of The View. And a woman in Troy Michigan did damn near everything she could to get shot by the police, and they still wouldn’t do it. They let her eat her own earrings though. Then it’s Sexy Time, but not the kind you’re thinking. Those remote control butt plugs seem like a great idea, that is until somebody gets to controlling that bad boy without your knowledge. And it’s been quite a while since it was it’s own segment, but Cheaper To Keep Her makes it’s return as Toni Braxton raised some eyebrows after saying “Men are the new bitches…” referring to the alimony that she has to pay to her ex-husband, Keri Lewis of the R&B group, Mint Condition. Tyrese is feeling the financial squeeze from an ex too, as his ex-wife says her job is “living life.” We get patriotic with Proud To Be An American, as former Utah Congresswoman Mia Love got her black wake up call after losing her bid for re-election. She even had some choice words for the dude currently occupying the White House right now. And Republicans in both Michigan and Wisconsin legislatures are attempting to gut the powers of incoming Governors and Attorney Generals to blunt the fact that they lost control of both of those positions in both states. And of course, we’ve got our AssHat & Champ of The Week announcements. So we got lots to get into tonight, so lets knock it all out tonight right here on The Spann Report!

(Ep. 229) #TSRP “Happy HallowThanksMas!”

On episode 229 of #TSRP Spann is back after taking a trip home to Chicago for the holiday. We talk a little bit about the trip, and then we get right In The News as General Motors has announced the closing of 5 plants, with two plant closings in the Metro Detroit area. The Dept. of Homeland Security is looking to add credit scores to the criteria of those looking to become legal residents of the country. And former Toys R Us employees got word that they would be splitting a $20 million hardship fund. However 17 of the people responsible for bankrupting the company will be paid out bonuses splitting $16 million among themselves. We then go to Blue Blazes, as Jerry Springer returns to TV with a new court show. And in an era where mega church pastors can’t seem to stop themselves from looking ridiculous, one Pastor was a flight above the rest! And the couple who were sued by a homeless man over a GoFundMe account in excess of $400K have found themselves behind bars after authorities discovered all three of them were scamming EVERYBODY! Then we’re off to Proud To Be An American where police shoot an army vet in an active shooter situation, then blamed him for his death. The NYPD has allowed an officer who was caught on tape planting drugs in a teen’s car to keep his job. And numerous companies are asking for donation refunds from the Senate campaign of Cindy Hyde-Smith after it was revealed that she’d made many racist, and offensive remarks. And of course we’ve got our AssHat & Champ of The Week announcements. So let’s get right to it, with the real talk, ALL THE TIME here on The Spann Report!
