Oh Safaree…Hey Big Head w/ Dr. Keneshia Grant

2018-03-01

This week, Dr. Keneshia N. Grant stops by FSG to talk about a myriad of things: Safaree’s wild Twitter antics; Black Panther and the greatness that IS Wakanda…BUT is Michael B. Jordan playing the same character in all his movies? How exactly did this place become Trump’s America?! Why is Stacey Dash’s wack ass running for Congress? And so much more!

**Update** After the recording, Dr. Grant realized she made an error in the conversation about Russia. Charges were dropped against Rick Gates, not Paul Manafort.

Choppin’ It Up w/ A Whole New Irving

2018-01-27

Good People!!! This week, I sat down with creator, writer, and director- Terry Dawson and lead actor, Chase Anthony of YouTube’s new dramedy web-series, A Whole New Irving. This hilarious show tells the of  Irving Miller and how he deals with the typical woes of being fresh out of college with a degree in hand and no job. While transversing this road from college life to real adulthood, Irving stumbles across a spiritual journey that opens his eyes to elements of life that he didn’t realize existed.

The guys chop it up with me and get into the in’s and outs of producing a web- series in Hollywood, how they got into the industry, what they’re watching on tv, and much more. And You know we had to get into the ridiculousness that is Mo’Nique’s call to action for us to boycott Netflix. Chile please!

And I introduce a new ridiculous segment to the show…just wait for it!

And that’s it! Listen-Laugh-Share

Peace,

Irene

Jumpin’ Thru Jumanji feat. LamarDupree

2018-01-20

Giggle Gang!!! It’s 2018 and Irene is back with an exciting episode of FSG Podcast! This week’s guest cohost is @LamarDupree. And despite mother nature trying to take Irene out with the common cold, we don’t waste anytime getting to the foolishness.

Trump is still a racist. Go figure. Cory Booker is yelling at white women…and we’re ok with it. Lamar explains his upcoming #BlackPanther attire. We don’t think folks are too proud of Mary…but we still love you, Taraji! FX is back with another nail biter with the story of Gianni Versace’s assassination. Love and Hiphop Miami is the best thing on television. And Tiffany Haddish is our Groupon hero! All this and so much more!

Black Women Be Votin’

2017-12-16

What’s up Giggle Gang! We missed you last week, but we’re back.
Irene kicked it in her hometown last weekend and had an awesome first time experience at Art Basel. Shells has been getting ready for Christmas and adjusting to the winter, which is finally here in the Midwest.
This week we are covering …
The sweeping #BlackVote that made huge impacts in the recent political races across the country, specifically in Atlanta and Alabama.  ATL now has a mayor named Keisha, and Alabama has its first democrat US senator in 25 years!
Bitcoin and crytocurrency are all the new wave…and FSG is trying to get on!
We discuss some of the the most popular Google searches of the year, some more surprising than others.
Then we discover that Shells is late to the world of helpful shopping apps.
And we wrap this up with a surprising artist in Irene’s Beat (must mean this track is really dope!) and an eye spy inspiration.. slightly paraphrased.. about making moments memories.
That’s all for this week!
Listen – Laugh – Share!
