R. Kelly

(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 212) “They Don’t Care About Me Bro!”

On episode 212 of #TSRP Spann celebrated Father’s Day and a birthday all in one weekend, and we’ll talk about whether or not the social media frenzy around who gets to celebrate Father’s Day and how has finally died down, or has Spann just chosen not to dwell on it anymore. (Could be a little bit of both.) And since it was a Spann birthday, we’ll reminisce on the year that was. A little bit anyway. We get off of that and head right into The News, as rapper XXXTentacion has been killed at the age of 20. We’ll talk about performative empathy, and the nuances of if it’s ever OK to speak ill of the dead, despite the kind of person they exhibited themselves to be while they were alive. Detroit Pistons player Reggie Bullock will be the first active NBA player to ride on Pride Parade float in support of the Transgender community as his own sister was a victim violence because she was Transgender. Andrea Kelly, the ex-wife of trashbag of R&B R. Kelly has revealed in a new interview that she too suffered abuse at the hands of the singer. And Donald Chump has ordered the Department of Defense, and the Pentagon to create another branch of the armed forces, and that branch is…. “THE SPACE FORCE” No seriously, this idiot wants a space force. And in Proud To Be An American, a waitress, and Air Force recruit not only lost her job, but lost her shot at the Air Force, after a video of her looking to “HUNT NIGGERS” went viral. And another black man has proclaimed he is “Off The Plantation Bro!” as he bashes BLM, the LGBTQIA community, and progressives in general while speaking at at Turning Point USA event in front of Candace Owens. We’ll break down the silliness that is this notion that progressivism is somehow inherently bad to the black community. Then it’s on to Blue Blazes, as Jerry Springer has FINALLY been canceled after nearly 30 years on the air. And a cheating husband got caught doing the do in the most bizarre way possible. And before we leave out for the night, we’ll be charitable on this Juneteenth 2018 and not have an AssHat of the Week, but we WILL be highlighting a Champ. All of that is coming and maybe a little bit more tonight on The Spann Report!

(Episode 210) “That Tiger Went Tiger!”

Back after the Memorial Day weekend and a trip to Chicago, Spann is ready to hit the mic running with episode 210 of #TSRP and we hop right In The News, as Kim Kardashian meets with the Orange Fuher to advocate on behalf of Alice Marie Johnson, and prison reform. But did she play herself by going? The Obamas have inked a multi year deal with Netflix to produce content for the streaming service, and conservatives across the country are threatening to cancel their subscriptions to the ubiquitous service. And Harvey Weinstein was finally arrested for sexual assualt, will Bill Cosby supporters find a new goalpost to move? Then on to Blue Blazes, as police have been found to have fabricated over 200K breathalyzer test! R. Kelly says it’s too late to bring him down. He could be absolutely right too. And Rachel Dolezal has been charged with Welfare Fraud, after investigators look into her finances after her Netflix documentary, and book deal. AND THEN, we get patriotic, as Proud To Be An American, shows us what America looks like to so many. Roseanne Barr gets her show cancelled after a racist tweet, and conservatives break their necks to do the exact same thing they swear they hate. And a Republican Congressional candidate in California, made it her business to harass a Transgender woman who was using the restroom, and had the audacity to record it. All of that AND, of course you know we’ve got our AssHat & Champ of The Week. So much to tackle this week, but we’re right back at it here on The Spann Report!

We then run into Blue Blazes, as Google has unveiled a new feature to it’s Google Assistant, and it’s called Duplex. It allows for the Google Assistant to make phone calls and appointments on your behalf. But the AI is extremely human like. Would you use it? Donald Glover has the nation talking after the premiere of his This Is America video, but a subsequent conversation arose around his significant other, with folks raising questions about his authenticity in blackness, because his significant other is white. Spotify, Apple Music, and Pandora have all made decisions to stop promoting R. Kelly’s music, and the man who once shot at George Zimmerman has been sentenced to prison time, as we dive In The News.

On episode 204 of #TSRP Spann welcomes back long time friend of the show writer Shane Paul Neil. Back after the internet just refused to let us be great last weekend.

And Kanye West is back out here on these Twitter streets, and he’s managed to piss off a gang of his fans, and have folks openly wondering if there are some mental health issues really going on with Kanye, OR is this just his way of promoting the new music he has coming out by getting people to talk about him. All of that, with some listener feedback and of course, we’ve got our AssHat & Champ of The Week announcements. We’ve got a lot of ground to cover so let’s get to it this week on The Spann Report!
