Episode 52: It's Time to Get Free, Sis!
It’s an N-squared episode fresh and ready for ya! This week we’re All A Twitter about — #spoileralert! — that tall, cool, drink of Big Gulp, Lawrence (Jay Ellis), walking back into our lives on HBO’s Insecure. This means we got a brief visit from our fave sidekick, Chad (Neil Brown. Jr.), too. Yesss! That’s all we wanted. We’re also buzzing about Lena Waithe’s powerful acceptance speech for the Shot Caller Award she won at the recent Black Girls Rock ceremony. She encouraged us all to “get free” of the limited thinking, restricted narratives, stereotypes, and unnecessary fear about what other people think of you, and instead live out loud as your authentic self. This led us into our larger conversation about tennis great Serena Williams and the tired-ass “angry, Black woman” trope too many of us have to deal with every damn day. And we close out the show with an Air Horn Salute for 20-year-old, Women’s U.S. Open champion Naomi Osaka. Get in to this!
