(Ep. 14) #BWPod “Life After Lockup”

One of the shows that The Spanns love to watch together and tweet about is Love After Lockup, a reality TV show that airs on the WeTV Network. It’s a show that follows a few sets of couples, where their relationships starts with one of them having been incarcerated, and all of the challenges that their relationship endures. These folks eventually get out and set off to have a life filled with love honesty, and respect right? Right? Well not always. But we are all here for the ride.

Well, there is a spin off of that show, that continues to follow those couples after their initial meetups, and eventual marriages to see how they’re doing and boy oh boy does the drama ensue. So while Mr. & Mrs. Spann love talking about this on social media, it’s seems only fitting to give Life After Lockup the true BaeWatch Podcast treatment. So we will be reviewing each episode this season, and we hope you guys will be here right along with us for the ride!

(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. 46) #BNCPod “The Legend of Kawhi”

It’s been a long time, we shouldn’t have left you, without a strong pod to beef to. (I mean I would have said argue to, but that wouldn’t have fit.) What’s going on family, welcome to episode 46 of The Beer N’ Chicken Podcast, with the homies Spann and Cliff bringing you some sports hot take shenanigans. It’s been a while so your boys will be doing some catching up, and then we hop into some of the sports hot topics of the moment.

Of course you know we’ll be diving into these NBA Finals. A Finals series that at the time of this recording has the Toronto Raptors leading 3-1, and on the cusp of the first ever NBA Championship in franchise history after 24 years of existence. Shout out to everybody who remembers an NBA with no Canadian teams. But with these NBA Finals there has been a little drama. Outside of whether or not Kevin Durant will make a comeback by game 5, and will it be enough, Warriors minority owner Mark Stevens is being pressured to sell his stake in the team after pushing Raptors Point Guard Kyle Lowry, while making a play on the ball out of bounds. So the questions we’ll be asking is, should he be forced to sell his stake in the team, and also the re-emerging discussion about fan interaction with players during, and surrounding the games.

Speaking of owners. Warriors Forward Draymond Green has been making waves after an appearance on the HBO show The Shop hosted by LeBron James, where he spoke about his being uncomfortable with the term “owner” being used in league that consist mostly of black players. One owner in particular, the Dallas Maverick’s Mark Cuban has taken exception to the comparison, and has called on Draymond Green to apologize. But should he?

As Kwahi Leonard has this Raptors team on the verge of taking the chip, we’re learning more and more about this dude as a person. You’re seeing him do more post game interviews, you’re hearing stories about him while he was a college player at San Diego State. He’s starting to become an urban legend right before our eyes. But two questions remain, had LeBron James decided to stay in the East, do we get to see Kawhi flourish in these NBA Finals? And secondly is it Kawhi, not Kevin Durant who’s next up as the best player in the world? We’ll get into those topics and of course, you know ya boys have to finish it off with our Wing It portion of the show. So kick back, relax, get yourself a Four Loko, and a 2 piece white from one of your favorite fish and chicken joint, and kick it with your boys right here on The Beer N’ Chicken Podcast!

(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!

(Ep. 45) #BNCPod “Those Damn Unwritten Rules”

We’re back with another episode of Beer N’ Chicken, and we’re kicking off the show with a little baseball. Chicago White Sox shortstop Tim Alexander was suspended for 1 game for his role in a bench clearing incident between the White Sox and Kansas City Royals. But his biggest crime seems to be going against some of the “unwritten rules” in baseball. And we’re going to dive into some of those unwritten rules, and whether or not they should be done away with, or did Tim Alexander get exactly what he deserved?

Then we’re off to the NBA as the postseason is under way, some teams who didn’t make it into the playoffs are making news in other ways. One of those teams are the New Orleans Pelicans, and their star Center, Anthony Davis. Many see his trade demand in the middle of the season as one of the reasons their season went off the rails, and contributed to the implosion that happened with the Los Angeles Lakers. But the newly appointed President Of Basketball Operations for the Pelicans seems to believe that Anthony Davis can be convinced to stay in The Big Easy? Does he have a point, or has he been tipping into the bars of Bourbon Street to hard already?

And while we’re talking basketball, the Oklahoma Thunder are on the brink of elimination at the hands of the Portland Trail Blazers. And while the Thunder have been getting a lot of attention for their treatment of the media and the perceived beefs they have with certain Portland players, the Trail Blazers have been plugging away and seem to be poised to move on the the next round. Could this be yet another example of not letting the distractions get in the way of playing the game? And if so, are Russell Westbrook’s antics becoming a huge distraction for his Oklahoma City Thunder team?

We’re going to cover all of that and of course, you guys know we have to Wing It to close out the show. So kick back with some Honey Barbecue Wings, and a Bell’s Oberon and chop it up with your boys right here on The Beer N’ Chicken Podcast!
