(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 216) “Just A Little Russian Meddling Is All”

On episode 216 of #TSRP we hop right into the craziness of the week and kick off the show with Blue Blazes. We update the story of the gas pump thieves in Detroit. A man finds out that his wife was cheating on him in the most tragic of ways, and there’s an armless man out here in the streets stabbing folks! We then hop In The News, as the world reacts to the Trump/Putin Summit, it becomes ever more clear how much racism has driven this country even from it’s own stated principles. The US Army is discharging immigrant soldiers that they previously promised citizenship to for fighting on this country’s behalf. And Democratic lawmakers are seeking to ban the current legal defense of “Gay & Trans Panic” to better prosecute cases where a Gay or Trans person was killed because of their sexual and gender identity. And in Proud To Be An American, a Trump supporter calls into a C-SPAN show to thank the Russians for interfering in the 2016 Presidential election. On Capitol Hill, interns who are wearing MAGA hats are being refused service by Uber drivers, and in yet another case of white fragility, a white CVS employee calls the police on black customers because he suspected that they were using a fake coupon. We then get to the listener feedback we’ve gotten over the course of the week from YouTube, email, and iTunes reviews. And of course we close the show out with our AssHat & Champ of The Week. So lots to get into, so lets get right into it right now here 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!

(Episode 214) “All Patriotic And Sh*t”

On episode 214 of #TSRP we kick off the 4th of July festivities early! We get right to the shenanigans In The News as Joe Jackson, the patriarch of the Jackson family passes away at 89 years old. The Supreme Court has made a ruling that could hurt public unions for decades to come as worker’s rights are continuously eroded. Harley Davidson has decided that they have to move some of their manufacturing overseas in response to Donald Chump’s Tariffs. And a woman has been charged after video surfaced of her assaulting a kid a community pool. We then move on to The Special Hotep Unit as Umar Johnson is back to his shenanigans. This time trying to tie the LGBTQIA community to pedophilia. And another hotep goes before a school board as they were contemplating allowing students to have a Black Lives Matter Day during Black History Month, to tell them that BLM is being used to push homosexuality on black children. In Blue Blazes, a man took his love of A Nightmare on Elm Street to the extreme as he murdered someone using a “Freddy Krueger” type glove. Comcast is now about to begin throttling HD quality videos on their Xfinity Mobile customers, you can get better quality videos if you’re willing to pay them more money though. (Net Neutrality Anyone???) And a Crip from California claims to have confessed to knowing who killed Tupac. We then move on to Proud To Be An American, as a new black business was met with a not so welcome message from the surrounding area of their establishment. A pharmacist denied a woman a prescription given to her by her doctor to terminate her pregnancy. And it’s actually legal. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy is retiring from his post, giving Donald Chump another crack at filling a seat on the court that has handed down a lot of 5 to 4 decisions on crucial rulings this year. And news media outlets have been paying Melania Trump to use her images, but there’s a catch to their ability to use them. All of that, and STILL we have our AssHat & Champ of the week, maybe a little bit more, on episode 214 of The Spann Report!

(Episode 213) “The Bible Said Something About Reaping & Sowing Right?”

Mr. Spann is back on the mic for episode 213 of #TSRP And we start the episode getting into some of your feedback as with poll results, iTunes reviews, and YouTube comments. Then we get to business as we hop In The News, as Netflix has just fired their top spokesman for using racial slurs. A white woman calls the police on an 8 year old girl selling water. (Yes, this silly shit happened again.) And Jeff Sessions reinstates a seizure practice that had been done away with by the Obama Administration. Then off to Blue Blazes we go as a woman had a bump on her face that just wouldn’t quite stay still. Sex robots are already evolving as they can now refuse sex when they’re not in the mood, and a man nearly loses his life after being severely constipated. (Brings a whole new meaning to full of shit now doesn’t it?) Then it’s off to Proud to Be American, as the group who was responsible for the rally in Charlottesville, Virginia last year, have just had a request to hold a rally in Washington DC approved for August. A Tennessee hardware store owner bars gay customers from his store, emboldened after the Supreme Court ruled in favor of the baker who refused to bake a wedding cake for a gay couple. And Sarah Huckabee Sanders was recently asked to leave a restaurant in Virginia as the ownership and staff didn’t feel comfortable with her there. And then we wind down the show with our AssHat & Champ of The Week announcements. So much news going on, Spann had to push some of the stuff he wanted to talk about into next week! But we have plenty to talk about tonight right here on episode 213 of 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!
