Another show without fan-favorite, T’Challa. However, the hosts have been quite busy themselves. LaToya is always working multiple jobs and has no time to read. On the other hand, Barry is also very busy but is relishing in the afterglow of having four of his novels released during the Unleash the Reese promotion period. Not sure what to watch on television? Barry and LaToya are here to fill in the gaps.
With no T’Challa in attendance, the hosts must find a way to do the show. LaToya is reluctant, offending Barry by telling him to record early so she can be done with it. Barry even suggests upping the recording schedule. LaToya shoots down the idea. One and done is enough for her. Barry has several books about to be released in close succession, and he somehow manages to ruin Spring Break by working. LaToya’s husband, K, manages to add some humorous background noise.
After a 2-month hiatus, the show is back with a special guest, K. That’s right, LaToya’s husband Kenrick makes a rare appearance. Since the last episode, much has changed, and just as much has remained the same. Barry is continuing to enjoy his life as a high school teacher while LaToya and Kenrick had a memorable Carnival Cruise and have welcomed a new nephew. T’Challa, cool as always, leaves us wanting more.
Birthdays. Christmas. Television. Oh my! It’s a new year and the hosts are excited to share their 2021 memories, some more pleasant than others. It’s another farewell to Voldemort, an almost sexless year, and yes, we’re just talking about LaToya. As a whole, the hosts are doing well and watching a lot of television and reading. They meander a little into politics and Omicron and let’s not forget Bigfoot porn.
The dream team is back together at last. T’Challa joins the show only to learn that it’s now only a monthly occurrence. The team believes that this recording schedule will make them all more committed to the show, especially for the reluctant LaToya. As always Barry tells us about what he’s watching and he also shares his Spotify year-end statistics. T’Challa shares his and LaToya remains committed to her iTunes library. And while they may be old enough to be their parents, Barry and LaToya share some of their secret celebrity crushes.
It’s time for some turkey, well, the turkey has already been eaten. The hosts return to the show discussing what they’ve seen and what they’ve been up to in the almost month since they last recorded a show. T’Challa is still absent, a bummer for us all. On this show, the hosts address the inconsistent recording of their weekly show. Moving forward there is a new monthly format, the second Saturday of each month. Barry deleted and then brought back his website (.net sites are still not a thing, Barry). And LaToya is still trying to find a work-life balance.
LaToya considers if the show should continue. Barry is writing a new book. T’Challa, absent from today’s show, has his learner’s permit. It’s been over a month since the last show and the hosts catch you up on what you’ve missed. With his KISS deep-dive complete, Barry shares an album with LaToya which she reviews on the show. Barry isn’t sure who’s up next, possibly Boyz II Men while LaToya plans to listen to all of Lianne La Havas’ albums.
T’Challa has returned but he’s busy working on a project to pay too much attention to the show. Barry and LaToya discuss what they’ve been watching. LaToya went to see her favorite sports team play and Barry is sad to see this semester go by so quickly. And on the 20th anniversary of 9/11 the hosts reflect on life before and after the tragedy.
After an almost two-month respite, the hosts are back. The only thing missing, the true star of the show, T’Challa. While he’s away at DragonCon, Barry and LaToya recount what has happened in the time away from the show. Reading. Writing. No arithmetic. And as usual, there is a lot of television watching and a Netflix series that both hosts agree that you must see!
Barry and T’Challa are uncharacteristically late for the show. LaToya, while annoyed, appreciated that they decided to grace her with their presence on the last show before a two-week break. As usual, LaToya is not happy with Barry. He made a movie recommendation that has him in the doghouse and is now one that T’Challa has to watch. Nevertheless, stick around to the end as Barry schools LaToya on some sex education.
