(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!

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!

(Episode 237) #TSRP “$2.50 And A Jawbreaker”

Is this two episodes in one week? Three episodes in two weeks? Yes indeed! We had so much news happen over the course of the last few days, we HAD to cover it. And so here we are with episode 238 of #TSRP In today’s episode he get straight In The News, as Democratic Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam is resisting calls for his resignation, after a photo of him emerged with him in either black face, or Klan robes. Little girls all over the country are now able to join the Boy Scouts, and it’s pissing off plenty of adults. And scientist have made the amazing claim that they will have a cure for cancer within the next year. Is that too good to be true? And we’ll update the details surrounding the attack on Empire star Jussie Smollett in Chicago, and some of the troublesome conversations happening around that. We then get to Blue Blazes, as a 55 year old man did his best Ezell impression while trying pull off an insurance scam in McDonald’s. Bill Cosby is reportedly pretending to be Cliff Huxtable amongst the other inmates while he serves out his prison sentence. And more than half of Michigan Medical Marijuana users admit to driving a car while high. But why so much emphasis on them all of a sudden? Then we’re off to Proud To Be An American, where Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell tells us why he’s opposed to making Election Day a paid holiday in America. And it’s pretty much why we thought, just amazing to see him so openly admit it. Former Kentucky county clerk, Kim Davis, who made world wide headlines for her refusal to grant marriage license to gay couples, will now be forced to pay the legal fees of those couples who went to court to fight against her discrimination. And in Detroit, a police officer has been demoted instead of fired after he made a racist Snapchat post following a traffic stop.

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.

We then move on to Blue Blazes, as some idiot took the Bird Box Challenge on the road.

(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.
