Hail to the...chief? We're back for Episode 21 of University College! We cover quite a bit this week, including: President Trump's inauguration, his inauguration speech, boycotts and protest scheduled for post-inauguration, Trump's cabinet picks and their respective confirmation hearings, and NFL Hall of Famers who live for chicken wings! Rock with us!
We are back in Episode 20 with a full breakdown of President Obama's final address to the nation! We also discuss the new intelligence report about President-Elect Trump, and the Congressional Black Caucus and its fight to keep a controversial painting in the halls of Congress. Finally, we celebrate pop culture with a discussion about some of the African Americans that won big at the 2017 Golden Globes. We hope you join us!
In Episode 19, we take a look back at the year that was 2016. Trump, Syria, elections, Kaepernick, Black Lives Matter and much more topics are covered. We also discuss what we want the podcast to become in 2017 and what we'd like to see in the coming year. Happy New Year everyone!
In Episode 18, we get back to basics with the true meaning of Christmas--or at least what Christmas means to us. We are joined by special guest, Quinn Raye, owner of @EgoLashes. Join us for a great discussion about fun, family and some nostalgia along the way.
In Episode 17, we pay homage to the #1gottago Twitter account. Special guest Dayton Kendrick (appeared in Episode 4) helps us debate which one has to go out of the options provided. Is your mother's cooking better than your wife's? What's the best Eddie Murphy movie? Is Harlem Nights actually a classic? We debate all of these topics and much, much more!
