We discuss all of the popular hits in the catalogue of bad tropes including the lazy stereotypical tropes (weak nerd), the male savior prototype (great wall anyone), and the powerless female in need of rescue.We also discuss the areas where change is being made.

Brother To Brother Episode 17: Why Is This Still A Thing?

BROTHER TO BROTHER – EPISODE 17 – WHY IS THIS STILL A THING?

It’s the 17th episode of the Brother to Brother podcast and this show we’re asking the question…Why is this still a thing?Before we get into the main topic we give you some updates on stories we’ve covered in past episodes, we update the growing sexual assault list & also question how you can hate someone so much you stick a tooth brush up your butt.Then we get into the news where we nerd out about Black Panther posters and discuss some of the fears that Reggie has about folks showing up. We also get into the insult that is nominating the film Get Out as a “comedy” (quotation film) and why it’s so wrong. Lastly we discuss the pros and cons of a potential Lord of the Rings tv show & John causes a vicious nerd alert while discussing how he would make a successful Lord of the Rings show.After a two episode break we regretfully get into our least favorite segment Cop Watch. There we discuss a bad week for corrupt cops. From police planting drugs on video to cops resigning for rape there are terrible stories that need to be exposed. We then nominate our Ass Hat & Heroes of the years. Those who win this week are truly worry of their nominations.

 Lastly, we discuss those things that should have been settled a long time ago. The things that make you ask “Why Is This Still A Thing”. Why are we still debating the causes of the Civil War? Why are we still debating if White Supremacy or Nazis are bad people? Hiddanas and I question this and so many other areas to see our American society is so afraid to move past the hang ups that hold us back. From inaction on sexual assault to cultural appropriation we discuss it all.We end the show with our favorite segment Whatcha Talkin Bout Willis? There we discuss a white woman in Florida who believes she is Filipino, why Blake Shelton isn’t the sexiest or nicest man alive, and we have a laugh at a group of undercover cops who got into a fist fight with each other Super Trooper style.With something for everyone we hope you all enjoy this very personal and special episode of the Brother to Brother podcast.

Brother To Brother Episode 16 – Our American Experince

BROTHER TO BROTHER – EPISODE 16 – OUR AMERICAN EXPERIENCE

On the 16th episode of the Brother to Brother podcast we discuss our personal American Experience. We dive into what it has meant to have an American youth and upbringing.Before we get into the main topic we discuss a few things going In The News. We examine the continued growth of sexual accusations and the consequences of these actions. We also briefly examine how allegations of sexual assault are perceived differently in the field of entertainment versus politics. We also give a brief update on the Texas church shooting and debate if white privilege was at play in the Rand Paul assault.But it’s not all bad news…we promise. We also get pretty nerdy while discussing the new WOW aka the World of Warcraft new expansion. Reggie goes full nerd alert while filling in some history of the WOW and John attempts to join in on the fun. We also cover the new Hearthstone expansion and the aspects of the game we love and loathe. Finally before getting into our main topic we briefly discuss and decide on nominations for the Ass Hat & Hero of the year.Finally we get into our main topic which is our American Experience. Having grown up as POC with two military officers as parents our experience is quite unique when compared to most Americans. We seek to discuss the aspects of our upbringing that helped to form the people we have developed into. We discuss how the military shielded us from many things other POC grew up with and also the culture shock that we dealt with after leaving the military for civilian life in the south.We hope you’ll be patient with us as we discuss, debate, and process the milestone experiences that crafted our unique American Experience. Before we finish the show we briefly return to one of our favorite segments, What Cha Talkin Bout Willis, where we discuss the strange transformation of Sammy Sosa.With something for everyone we hope you all enjoy this very personal and special episode of the Brother to Brother podcast.

Brother To Brother Episode 15 – Yeah That Would Be Cool But…

BROTHER TO BROTHER – EPISODE 15 – YEAH THAT WOULD BE COOL BUT….

On the 15th episode of the Brother to Brother podcast we look at things at at first thought seem awesome but don’t necessarily work out depending upon who you are…. Before we get into the main topic we discuss some stories in the news. This includes an update on the Bowe Bergdahl case. Did he receive jail time or did he walk free with no punishment? We also quickly discuss the Colorado shooting & why a bunch of people with guns isn’t the best answer to mass shootings. Lastly @Hiddanasreviews the movie Marshall about the early life of civil rights lawyer and future Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall. We also get some feedback on a previous rant about female clothing in gaming and comics.We also have a busy segment of Ass Hate & Hero of the Year. For the first time ever we have a real competitive race for the Ass Hate of the Year nomination. We debate the merits of a fierce fatal four way when four candidates storm into the arena in hopes of claiming the treasured nomination. The Hero of the year nomination is a lot less dramatic but no less worthy of the honor. Did we get it right? Did we get it wrong?Lastly we discuss the things which seem cool but in reality don’t work for everyone. One main example is the idea of time travel. Time travel is always cool in theory but it would be very difficult if you’re a person of color, a woman, or any other group that has been marginalized. We also discuss how differently federal standoffs would go if black men were doing them instead of white ones (Oregon Standoff Anyone).We finish off the episode with one of our favorite segments Whatcha Talking Bout Willis. We ask what the hell Papa Johns is talking about with their anger towards the NFL protesters. Don’t miss this epic rant on pizza, protest, and charity.There is something for everyone so join @Tempiwmf & @Hiddanas on the latest episode of the Brother to Brother podcast.
