  • 214. Boxes-N-Bubbles (Costarring Angel Conley)

    In the honest to goodness penultimate episode of THE BARACK OBAMA APPROVED WORLD'S GREATEST PODCAST, Angel Conley is my very last guest! At long last, I reveal my top 10 greatest female MCs of all time and Angel brings 10 of her favorites. The similarities and the differences may shock you. Also, I may be sexist and I put women in boxes. I'm going to work on that.

    On today's BARACK OBAMA APPROVED WORLD'S GREATEST PODCAST, I celebrate Memphis Bleek and his 2003 album M.A.D.E.

Well, I go into depth on some of my favorite comic strips including Peanuts, Pearls Before Swine, and my most recent find, Poorly Drawn Lines! Then, I tell the story of how I met Huey Mack and discuss his latest album The Cozy Bar. Finally, I give James Marsden and Keegan-Michael Key their flowers for just showing up in stuff I love!

  • 210. Make Your Jeremy Bearimys Count

    On this episode of THE BARACK OBAMA APPROVED WORLD'S GREATEST PODCAST, I wanted to talk about things I was enjoying for the second time. We lead off with Mac Miller and his 2016 album The Divine Feminine after some Ja Morant jokes. Then we really reevaluate what I took away from my rewatch of The Good Place. And then I make another Ja Morant joke.

  • 209. Michael B. Jordan Landed Us Back In The MCU (Costarring Marcus Robinson)

    So you thought a conversation between myself and Marc Rob would just end because Rasslecast was over? Marcus wanted to do a quick segment on whether Michael B. Jordan was a good actor and from there we talked about our hopes for Creed III, Jonathan Majors, and what's gone wrong with the MCU since we last talked about it (2019's Spider-Man: Far From Home)!

  • 207. Angst, Drama

    In the first live episode since 2020, I decide to revisit talking about my favorite basketball players ever. I finally admit that I became a fan of Kobe Bryant prior to his untimely passing. Then, I talk about Marvel's constant need to make Spider-Man miserable, along with Amazing Spider-Man Vol. 1: World Without Love. I finish things off with a revisit of Ne-Yo's second album, Because Of You.

  • 200. Bicentennial Man

    Today, I talk about the long and winding road to episode 200, answer Errick and Kat’s questions that I missed on 199, preview some future episode topics, talk about how a friend’s review of recent MCU movies being right out of the back issue bins is perfect, say “for the 200th time” a lot, and rank the Stranger Things seasons!

    49m - Jul 14, 2022
  • 199. The Questions III

    On this edition of THE BARACK OBAMA APPROVED WORLD’S GREATEST PODCAST, we return to the questions! I solicited questions from my friends and family and I set about answering them… except for Handsome Bane’s because I’m a jerk. Also, I take some NSFW swipes at the gun control problem in the country before we get into the proceedings.

  • 198. Kendrick Don't Miss

    In this edition of THE BARACK OBAMA APPROVED WORLD'S GREATEST PODCAST, I start things off with a little housecleaning as I review and recommend some of my recent watches and listens.

  • 197. Retire Grant Hill's Number

    You see the title. In honor of the NBA Playoffs getting underway, I start a segment where I take a look at the career of one of my favorite NBA players, starting with Grant Hill. After being appalled the Pistons didn't retire his number yet, I review the new Girl Talk/Smoke DZA/Big KRIT/Wiz Khalifa album Full Court Press and then explain why it reminded me of my favorite Wiz project Kush & Orange Juice.

    54m - Apr 14, 2022
  • 196. Three Years Wiser

    Part of growing up is knowing when you were wrong. Because of that, I have to walk back some comments I made on Hyphen Nation 102 about Taylor Swift. I touch on her situation with her masters, Fearless (Taylor's Version), her songwriting prowess, and yes, for the last time, the Kanye of it all. Then I give flowers to Frank Ocean's nostalgia, ULTRA. and 9th Wonder & Murs' Murray's Revenge.

  • 195. To Gotham, With Love

    I tried to make this rhyme but not everything is meant to be. On this episode of THE BARACK OBAMA APPROVED WORLD'S GREATEST PODCAST, Aaron Rodgers finally gets what he wants, Russell Wilson is a Bronco and Khalil Mack is a Charger, I completely failed to mention the Slaughterhouse drama and the end of the MLB lockout... and I give my spoiler free opinion on The Batman!
