Government Shutdown

(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. 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!
