Welcome to Episode 41 of the U.C! Today we celebrate June 27th (even though Mike doesn’t know what that is), the return of “Power” and much more. Is Trump on a winning streak right now? Is it really retirement if no one hires you, or are you just out of work? Finally, other than Holly, I think we can all agree that Angela is the worst character ever on Power, right? The fellas all provide their individual “Who’s Gotta Go” lists and we do our consensus “Power” power rankings.

Man hold up, man its going diiiiiiine.

Welcome back to University College, Episode 40! This week, we are pleased to welcome Gina Paige, co-founder of AfricanAncestry.com, to the show. You have probably heard of competitors, but African Ancestry has been around much longer—and has more of its focus in providing our people with more detailed information about who they are and where they come from.

Gina has been featured on "60 Minutes", "Fox Business News", and in publications such as Jet Magazine, and online news site The Huffington Post.

She has worked with and revealed the roots of some of the world’s leading icons, including: Oprah Winfrey, John Legend, Spike Lee, and more.

If you’ve ever wanted to determine a more accurate view of your heritage, check out AfricanAncestry.com.

Gina was even nice enough to provide a discount code exclusively to our listners—but you’ll have to listen to find out what the code is!

What do President Trump and Kevin Durant have in common? More than you realize. Trump, who may be one of the most polarizing people in the US is now joined by Kevin Durant who is equally hated for "taking the easy way out."

This week, we discuss Trump, Comey, Sessions, the DOJ, and why Trump continues to lie about the most basic of facts.

 

We also take a look at the 2016-2017 NBA Champion Golden State Warriors, specifically, Durant's place among the greats of all time. It wouldn't be University College if we didn't also analyze Durant's love/hate relationship with a wave brush.

Check us out!

#RepresentationMatters, but its more than a phrase. Dr. Alden Landry and his team have a firm belief that there should be more people of color in the health professions (medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, etc.). With this thought in mind, he started Tour For Diversity in Medicine and the rest is history!

Tour For Diversity provides access to students of color who are interested in the health professions. These students get a chance to visit universities all over the country and discuss their goals with professionals currently in a related field.

Whether you're interested in medicine or just want a jolt of motivation, Dr. Landry provides very insightful words of inspiration while also discussing his personal story.

We hope you enjoy!

We’d like to welcome all of our listeners to Episode 38 of University College. This week we provide updates on recent “high profile” cases involving police offer-involved shootings of African Americans in Tulsa, Miami, and Cleveland. Should a jury be allowed to hear about a victim’s past issues, or should the jury only be allowed to consider what the officer knew at the time of the incident?

Also, is America fake caring about Eldrick “Tiger” Woods, or is this is serious as the media is making it sound?

Finally, can LeBron and Kyrie compete with the Warrior’s and Durant’s estranged wave brush?

We discuss all of this and more! If you listen to the episode and enjoy it, share the content.
