  • What is it about that Sagittarius fire energy that fuels such vivid, sensual pop music? We’re turning up the heat today with this Janelle Monáe encore. The visionary pop star shares her journey from burying her sexuality while growing up in the church to fighting the patriarchy by “responding to love.”

Then we debut a new end segment called “This One Has Some Sweetness To It” where we ask Janelle some *spicy* questions about pleasure, turn ons, and The Obamas. We hope you’re ready for this one because things are getting hot!

Get ready for a hilarious episode where we are joined by Jameela Jamil who shares her worst date stories, the secret thing that she needs in a relationship, and her honest opinions on internet pitchfork culture. Plus we play “Quickies with Keke” where we ask Jameela her opinions on Republicans, DJs, feet, and Furries. Yep, we're going THERE this week!

  • We’re NOT lying when we tell you this is one of our favorites, which is why we just had to run it back for you! You know them from their amazing podcast “Las Culturistas:” Matt Rogers and Bowen Yang. We’re talking about lies — the white lies, the not-so-white lies, and the lies that get you caught red-handed.

    We’d be lying if we said we NEVER lied. Whether it’s adding a few inches to your height on your dating profile or coming up with a fake excuse to get out of plans, everybody does it! This week we are joined by the hilarious duo, Bowen Yang and Matt Rogers to dissect all the reasons why we lie. We fess up and admit some of the funny/embarrassing lies we have told, debate whether or not it’s okay to lie while dating, and we admit how we can be a little delusional sometimes when we lie to ourselves. Even though we are talking about lying, we promise this episode will be filled with nothing but the truth… or will it?

  • We’re bringing back your favorite sister duo — none other than Disney’s own Aly and AJ (We’re feeling StarStruck)! This encore episode will leave you longing for the days of back-to-back DCOMs (shoutout Cow Belles!), As Seen on TV commercials, and of course, listening to your favorite Aly & AJ song on your mp3 player.

    “This is Keke Palmer from “Jump In”, and you’re watching Disney Channel!” MAN what a throwback! Those were the days! There was something so special about Disney Channel; the TV shows, the DCOMS, even the online games were so much fun! But has it changed? Has Disney Channel lost its magic? Do we need to write a “Potential Breakup Song” for our former happy place? This week we are joined by Aly and AJ to chat all about our favorite memories of working for The Mouse and what it was like growing up being part of such an iconic network. Plus if you watch us on YouTube, you’ll see our version of making the iconic Disney Channel Mickey Ears. So “Jump in” loves, because this is one of our most magical episodes yet.

  • It’s time for our most beloved Disney adult, John Stamos! That’s right, this encore is all about Disney Adults, Disney Secrets, and of course Uncle Jesse. Have Mercy!

    Picture this, it’s a beautiful day in Southern California, you’re walking down Main Street USA, the smell of churros in the air, your favorite childhood songs are playing in the background, and in the distance you can even see the beautiful skyline of planet Batuu, Sleeping Beauty’s Castle, and the frosty peaks of Matterhorn Mountain. Sounds pretty magical right? We LOVE Disney over here on BTIKP, but some stupid internet trolls just LOVE to hate on anyone who loves Disney as an adult. But, WHY?? Why does the internet get so heated when an adult likes Disney? This makes us want to scream louder than when we’re being whipped around on Space Mountain. So we had to call in an expert on this one. This week we are joined by Disney superfan, and our favorite uncle, John Stamos, to chat about his love of Disney, his Disney memorabilia collection, and why people should have mercy with Disney adults. So put on your best pair of Mickey ears, because we’re taking you on a ride to The Happiest Place on Earth!

  • We’re bringing back one of our fan-favorite episodes today: a conversation with the multi-hyphenate Renee Rapp! We get into everything that the music world entails from present-day icons to how to break into the industry, and we do it all with banter and a level of dry humor that you know only Renee herself can pull off!

    There is something so special about the art form of music, don’t you think? Music helps document big and small moments of our lives, whether it’s blasting a break up song to heal your broken heart, or slow dancing to a love song at your wedding. But what about the process of making those songs? What’s it like for artists to put their heart and soul into their music for the world to hear? This week, we are talking to Renee Rapp all about the creative process of making an album. We get into our creative influences, or biggest fears, and why it’s okay to have Imposter Syndrome. Plus we play “Quickies with Keke” with Renee and her thoughts on Taylor Swift vs Beyonce might surprise you!

  • We’re running it back with another one of our favorite episodes! This week, a conversation with the brain behind several of our all-time favorite scary movies: Jordan Peele! Now why in the world would we want to seek out horror movies when real life sometimes feels like its own horror movie?? Jordan helps us get to the bottom of it!

    The world is filled with some scary shit, UFO spy balloons keep popping up in our neighborhoods, we’re on the brink of World War 3, and Doomsday seems to be right around the corner. So why the hell do we CHOOSE to be scared over and over again when real life is scary enough? Think about it, horror movies, true crime podcasts, roller coasters, the list is endless for ways we LOVE to be scared, but why do we put ourselves through this? This week I am joined by my good friend and Oscar winner, Jordan Peele, who definitely knows a thing or two about scaring audiences. We get into our biggest fears, why we love the horror genre, and what he has cooking next, which I’m sure none of us will be able to say Nope to (see what I did there?). Maybe listen to this episode during the daytime with your lights on because baby, it’s about to get Spooky Ookie!

Sharon helps us take a trip down memory lane to look at all the different phases of rap we’ve seen — can you guess who her favorites are?? Then, we’re joined by our guest: a Gen Z rapper from Milwaukee who goes by The Female GOAT. That’s right, it’s Lakeyah! We get into all the issues that still persist in the music industry — we’re looking at you, misogyny — where rap music is headed, and how the genre is diversifying. You know Lakeyah won’t hold back!

Yeah, we’re answering those kinds of questions this week, and we have Academy Award nominee Aunjanue Ellis-Taylor to give us the answers!
