(Episode 225) #TSRP “He Had Me At Larry Hoover”

On episode 225 of #TSRP we kick off the show with some listener feedback, and then we head right In The News, as a grisly discovery was made in a Detroit area funeral home. And a verdict was made in the case of Jeffery Ziegler, the Rochester Hills man who fired his rifle at a young black boy who knocked on his door asking for directions. And a Federal judge has thrown out a defamation lawsuit by Stormy Daniels against Donald Trump. We move on really quickly to Sexy Time, as a woman has taken a whole new meaning to merging sex and food, like LITERALLY. Then it’s off to Blue Blazes where a South Carolina man shoots his cousin over eating his potato chips. A man is run over by a lawnmower while he attempts to kill his son with a chainsaw. Yes, you read that right. And Bill Cosby just might have had Cheaper To Keep Her playing in his head when it’s found out that Camille Cosby drained one of his “secret” accounts to cover expenses at home. And in Proud to Be An American, a white woman calls the police on a black man babysitting two white children. An Arkansas sheriff forces inmates to wear Nike T-Shirts to “mock” Colin Kaepernick. And a St. Louis woman blocks a black man from entering his apartment. We’ve got all of that and of course, our AssHat & Champ of The Week. So kick it with you boy Spann tonight right here on The Spann Report!

(Episode 217) “It’s Been A Long Time”

On episode 217 of #TSRP Spann is back after a much needed break, and getting his podcast chakras in order. We start the show with Spann reflecting a little bit about his time away from the mic, and some of the things he learned about himself while he was away, but then we get right into the silliness as Spann has a few Random Thoughts to get off of his mind. We hop In The News and reflect a bit on the life of The Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin, and what she meant not only to music, but to the city of Detroit, and a crazy revelation in how Spann found out about how the Queen of Soul, got that name. Voter suppression is rearing it’s ugly head again, this time in Georgia, as Republicans in the state seek to shut down as many as nine polling places in a majority black county leading up to the mid term elections this coming November. And Donald Trump finds himself surrounded by convicted felons as his former campaign manager, Paul Manafort was just found guilty of 8 counts of fraud. Trump’s former personal attorney, Michael Cohen has also decided to flip and plead guilty to the Feds for 8 counts campaign finance violations, and says he did so at the direction of Donald Trump. 8 obviously isn’t Trump’s lucky number. Then it’s on to Blue Blazes, as apparently you can get your Viagra fix on Detroit without a prescription, and you’ll never guess where you can get it. R. Kelly is being sued by property managers in the Atlanta area for destroying two rental properties to the tune of over $200,000 worth of damage. And Bill Cosby thinks that having to register as a sex offender will “damage his reputation.” It’s too late for that one there buddy. And in Proud To Be An American, Alex Jones has been banned of most of the more popular social media websites. Is this an infringement on his free speech, or is this something that all of these platforms waiting far too long to do? In Clearwater FL, Michael Drejka, the man who invoked a “Stand Your Ground” defense after shooting a man in the chest over an argument over a parking spot was finally arrested and charged in the murder of Markeis McGlockton. Will this be a replay of what happened with Trayvon Martin, or will the video of the actual killing make a difference in this case? And as promised back when she was fired from her White House post, Omarosa Manigault-Newman is out peddling her new book about what she witnessed in the White House while working there. And in her press run, many people are contemplating whether or not black people will accept her back into the community after her dogged support of Donald Trump, will we? And of course, before we close the show, we’ve got our AssHat & Champ of The Week announcements. It’s been a long time indeed, and we got a lot to get into, but it’s good to be back and we’re doing it. So get posted up and enjoy the show this week on The Spann Report!

(Episode 215) “This Is Fine”

On episode 215 of #TSRP Spann opens the show with some random thoughts about local newscast, and then we hop right In The News as scammers preyed on the poor and had many of them assemble in downtown Detroit under the guise that the city was about to give them all a home. Harvey Weinstein has been indicted on 3 felony sexual assault charges as fallout from his scandal continues, and Chris Brown gets arrested AGAIN! men in Detroit somehow hacked a gas pump and were able to steal over 600 gallons of gas from a local gas station. Then we’re off to Blue Blazes, as a new game show comes out with the twist that the winners will have their student loans paid off. Witnesses who’s testimony put rapper C-Murder in jail for life have now recanted on their stories. And men in Detroit somehow hacked a gas pump and got away with over 600 gallons of gas over the course of a day. And in Sexy Time, we ponder how much people are willing to pay to have an amazing sex life. Is $100K a year too much? You decide. And in Proud To Be An American, Detroit students found out the that sometimes this country doesn’t always live up to it’s promise as a court has decided that they do NOT have a right to literacy. YES, YOU READ THAT RIGHT! THEY DON’T HAVE A RIGHT TO LITERACY per the judges ruling. Speaking of judges, Donald Chump gets to make another Supreme Court Justice pick, and let’s just say, Donald Chump is definitely trying to cover his ass. Also, as Spann has been seeking to have more of a presence on YouTube with clips of the show, one of The Spann Report videos were linked with bunch of conservative black folks who were talking about #WalkAway a supposed movement of black voters and a few others moving away from the Democratic Party after they claim “the left has lost it’s mind with it’s lack of civility, and intolerance.” But is this movement real? We’ll discuss all of that and of course, we have our AssHat & Champ of The Week announcements, PLUS, Listener feedback! We got lots to get into, so let’s get right on to it this week on The Spann Report!

And later in the show Spann addresses the Poverty Bus Tour spearheaded by Tavis Smiley and Dr. Cornel West, the riots over in the UK, and Mr. Spann makes a trip back home to Chicago that was epic for reasons you might not expect.

Big Kev, from the 90/10 Rule Podcast joins us to today. Cardi B and Peter Gunz of Love & Hip Hop New York get into a back and forth over what defines a hoe, who’s right? Bernie Sanders wins both the Idaho, and Utah Caucuses during the last Super Tuesday primaries. Does he have a legitimate shot at the Democratic nomination or is it time to hang it up? And why isn’t Bernie connecting more with African American voters? We will also follow up on the latest happenings with comedian Katt Williams and the fallout from the video of him fighting a minor. We’ve got a new entry into the AssHat of The Week Hall of Fame, and a new Champ of The Week. This week on The Spann Report!
