Happy Memorial Day and welcome back to University College! This week, we are joined by special guest Okey Enyia, who discusses quite a bit with us, including:

- Is there diversity in Washington?

- The disconnect between what the Democratic Party espouses and their issues with execution.

- The quality of Trump's Saudi Arabia speech

- Why does the Trump administration wear such terrible suits

We hope you enjoy!

In this #UCSoundbyte, Curtiss, Mike and I discuss why Mike refuses to acknowledge that there is there...there. Do we believe that Trump can be quiet long enough to let the investigation run its course? What does it mean that there is a resounding silence when conservatives normally run to his side? How much political power does Trump have left to spend? We briefly tackle all of this and more.

In a very special episode of our Black Business Profile series, we speak with Jamila Barefield about how her colon cancer diagnosis led to her creating Mila's Journey, a charitable organization that seeks to bring awareness to colon cancer and the lives impacted by this deadly disease. You will be inspired by her strength, courage, and ability to thrive in spite of a sobering diagnosis.

University College Episode 36 is now AVAILABLE! This week, we take a close look at how your own personal bubble shapes the type of media you choose to consume. How is it that two opposing groups can view the same fact and yet reach two distinctly different conclusions?

We also take a look Big Baller Brand and what we believe the company’s ceiling could be. Is a Black-only graduation at Harvard University a positive step toward healing the racial divide? And finally, the newly-crowned Miss USA 2017 believes that healthcare is a privilege not a right.

Join us for all of this, plus our commentary on Mike’s du-rag!

We appreciate the support and hope you have a great day!

Episode 35 of University College is now available! This episode marks our first “Listener Mailbag”. This week, Curtiss, Mike and I took some of your questions and discussed them during a live recording.

Questions:

  1. Does Black privilege exist?
  2. What is one thing you wish someone told you about raising children that you had no idea about?
  3. Why do you all think there is a stigma attached to mental health in our community?
  4. Are men more sensitive than women?
  5. What do your Caucasian or Republican (conservative) friends think about your podcast, or the things you’ve said?
  6. Where do you guys go for “unbiased” news? How do you educate yourselves on both sides of political issues?

We’d like to thank the listeners who submitted questions and congrats to the listeners who had a question that was picked!
