Teach the older men to be temperate, worthy of respect, self-controlled, and sound in faith, in love and in endurance. Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. Then they can urge the younger women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God. Similarly, encourage the young men to be self-controlled. In everything set them an example by doing what is good.

From the beginning of the nation to today, Black women have transformed their pain into progress and have been at the frontlines of many of the nation's political, social and economic struggles. In her new book Black Women Will Save the World, April Ryan celebrates the tenacity, power and impact that Black women have had across America. She highlights trailblazing “sheroes” ranging from political leaders like Vice President Kamala Harris and Rep. Maxine Waters, activists like Brittany Packnett Cunningham, and artists like Regina King who fight for fairness and justice. Ryan also chronicles her own journey from working-class Baltimore to the elite echelons of journalism and speaks candidly about the hurdles she faced in becoming one of the most well-connected members of the Washington press corps. Ryan notes we are at a moment unlike any other in our nation's history where we need to acknowledge the presence and unrivaled contributions of Black women. Hear more about how they continue to lead and drive change in our country. NOTES This program is part of The Commonwealth Club's Good Lit series, underwritten by the Bernard Osher Foundation.

Welcome back!! Love is in the air this week as the ladies discuss Netflix's romantic comedy "Entergalactic."!! Kid Cudi & Kenya Barris's animated film introduces "an ambitious artist, Jabari, attempting to balance success and love after he moves into his dream Manhattan apartment, and falls for his next-door neighbor." (Netflix) This is not a typical movie... more an artistic expression of storytelling through music and colorful visuals. What an experience! The ladies ultimately conclude that "Entergalatic" is visually stunning *stoner *film. A couple of highlights from this episode: Kat might have a crush, Moni didn't know Kid Cudi's real name, Moni & Kat agree it's a bad idea to smash your neighbors, and navigating corporate jobs, especially as Black artist, is especially painful!! Get ready for another great conversation. Cheers! Trigger Warning: Most of our episodes contain spoilers, adult content & language.

Welcome back!! The F.A.B. crew is ** finally** ready to board the ship to review sci-fi novel "Aftermath" by living legend, Levar Burton! This week's story takes the ladies into the future...or past, they can't tell. Published in 1997, this story is set in the years between 2015-2018. So the book is from the 1900's just like Moni and Kat, but still around today! Both Classics!! The plot is as follows "Civilization is teetering on the edge. The first African American president is assassinated by a white extremist—just four days after he is elected. The horrific tragedy leads to riots, financial collapse, and ultimately, a full-on civil war." (fable.co) Listen as they unpack the similarities of race relations of today, why Moni didn't finish the book and the fact that Kat would absolutely make sweet love to the person who rescued her (hypothetically from an organ harvesting, skin grafting murder factory) ....and why Moni wouldn't! Cheers! Trigger Warning: Most of our episodes contain spoilers, adult content & language. References to sexual assalt/rape, racism/child abuse. Please be advised this show is for adults 18 and up and the open minded. We are not professionals, or educators or journalists...just friends having candid conversations. **Dedication: To our listeners, future patrons, Black hair, and Kat's mom... and all moms who go hard in the paint! **About the Book *:"The United States of 2019 is a very different place. Economic depression, an enormous earthquake, and the assassination of a black President-elect have turned the country into a war zone. Four people, each as different and troubled as the next, are the nation's last hope. But can they overcome the devastation and build a new world?" -Good Reads About the Author: ***https://levarburton.com/ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LeVarBurton#Awards, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LeVarBurton Show Notes: FAB Awards!!!
