An anthem for people who’ve had enough. For people that have been pushed passed their limit, and can no longer find a fuck to give.
Well, we’re off to an incredibly politically correct holiday season, so be careful what you wish for. President Trump must think Congress is full of Mexicans, because he keeps wishing they’d pay for that wall Mexico was suppose to pay for. The P.C Police wish that music, movies, and television were a little less “rapey” this time of year. We wished that I$$A would return for part 2 of his interview… and guess what? HE DID!
This episode strikes a much more somber tone than usual. Guest host Shadow (www.instagram.com/shadownotshade) joins the show to have a serious discussion about the impact of the Lifetime docuseries Surviving R. Kelly is having on the culture as a whole. Then the Black Mannequin himself Bryan Walden joins the show for part 1 of his interview, and breaks down how he turned an idea and a passion into the hottest clothing brand in the Northwest.
This episode we pose some very simple questions for the country. If you’re (The Republican Party) defending someone (Steve King) against calls of racism for 16 years straight, and then on year 16 you (The Republican Party) end up calling for that same person (Steve King) to resign because of racist remarks… WHAT THE HELL DOES THAT SAY ABOUT YOU?!… But for real though. What does that say about your judgement? Your ideology? You’re character? Shit, what does that say about your skills of deduction??? Also, The Black Mannequin himself Bryan Walden stops by for part 2 of our interview, where he explains why he approaches his business with a hustlers motivation and style. He also gives us some fashion does and don’ts for the new year. Number 1 fashion “do”, go to https://theblackmannequin.com/ right now to get your drip!
Last week we went a little hard on the G.O.P’s whole R word problem. So this week we decided spread the pain and smack the Left around a little bit. We talk about 3 recent instances where the libs maybe, just maybe, took it a tad too far. Brain Bleed aka The Rebloodpican gets put on notice by the newest player to enter the political fray, Cernie Canders aka The Democrip. Then Vocab sits down with the Viral man himself S. Loyal, as he tells the crazy story about how he took a beat originally meant for his daughter to rap on, (but she wasn’t feeling it) and turned it into one of the biggest hit records ever to come out of the Portland area.
Vocab had to take the week off to snitch on Tekashi 69, so your friendly neighborhood DJ RPM has taken over the show once again. This week he’s releasing some previously unreleased Broken Glass content. We take it back to 2018 for a segment on the rash of people referring to prominent black figures as monkeys. Then, we share previously unreleased interviews with Samuel The 1st and BrenBoy. Don’t forget to checkout Samuel The 1st new video Bulleit,
This week on the Broken Glass Podcast we breakdown the Jussie Smollett fiasco from start to finish. We analyse both the hoax, and the hysteria surrounding the event from an objective, non political, but hilarious perspective. Then we discuss the current state of R. Kelly’s disgusting situation and wish him all the worst. The Canadian Anger Translator stops by to show support for Trumps national emergency, and new addition to the show Luther Strongback presents This Week In Black History. Then we go #Viral with S. Loyal as he breaks down what it’s like being the last of a dying breed, and gives some dope behind the scenes stories about life on the road.
This week we are Podcasting live from the 3rd annual NW Black Comedy Festival. BGP was blessed with the opportunity to bring out four of the hottest comedians in the city. So sit back, relax, and enjoy live performances from Hyjinx, Rissa Riss, Carter Anderson, and Lance Edward. Also Vocab sits down with each of the comedians for some hilarious Q&A’s you won’t want to miss.
This week we talk about William Barr’s summary, of the Robert Mueller summary, of the Mueller report (which we still haven’t seen), about Russian interference in the 2016 election. We break down the good, the bad, and extremely ugly facts presented in Barr’s summary. Our resident redneck Johnny Buckshot stops by to celebrate what he see’s as the total exoneration of every negative accusation ever made against his dear leader Donald Trump. Then Vocab sits down with one the biggest artists from Seattle Romaro Franceswa. They talk about his childhood and how fatherhood has motivated his grind to be one of the most recognizable figures in the Northwest music scene.
This week we mourn the tragic loss of rapper, actor, community activist, and entrepreneur Nipsey Hussle. Instead of focusing on his death, we chose to focus on his truly unique life, and attempt to explain to everyone (even those that never heard his music) why his death has devastated so many. In part 2 of our interview with Romaro Franceswa he breaks down the stories behind some of his most successful records. Then he takes the audience through a tour of Seattle, all the places you need to go, and some you should avoid. R.I.P to a real one.
This week we celebrate our milestone 50’th episode!!! To commemorate the occasion we decided to switch roles and have special guest host Shadow interview Vocab and DJ RPM. It’s a dope, introspective look at how the Broken Glass Podcast grew from a dollar and a dream, to the #1 political and music podcast in the Northwest. From the first episode to the fiftieth, cheers to everyone who came along for the ride, and here’s to fifty more!
This week it’s back to politics for the BGP! We take a look at a specific political figure and start our analysis with a particularly ridiculous lie. Then we go back exactly 35 years to begin to establish a pattern of behavior that is pretty unmistakable. We explore the real world current day effects of these lies, and ponder how this pattern will play a role in our future. The Canadian Anger Translator also stops by to show his undying support for his hometown Toronto Raptors as they take on the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals. Then Vocab sit’s down with The Hood Nurse for part 1 of a dope interview where he tells his incredible story of going from a high school drop out, to an honer student and full time Registered Nurse. His efforts to bring positivity and medical literacy to the hip hop community are truly inspiring.
