Shutdown

Trash, all of them. Even Chuck

Episode 136: (Petty) Government Shutdown (w/@_brandoc)

Welcome to another episode of the Chicken Social, the best podcast of all time*. On this week’s episode, digital renaissance man Brandon Caldwell (@_brandoc)joins us to discuss modern media: what is and is not headline news in this day and age and what should be? Additionally, Obes asks Brandon a more philosophical question: will hip-hop ever get past it’s current homophobia?

The boys then turn their attention to a very pressing matter. The Houston Rockets and Golden State Warriors have a budding rivalry, and Cha could not be happier about it. Clint Capela says the Rockets are better than the Warriors? Kevin Durant says Clint has “an easy job”? Delicious.

Last, but certainly not least, the government shutdown is (probably) over…until early February. Who are the winners and losers from Monday’s festivities? I’ll tell you this, our brothers and sisters in the Democratic Party are looking weak…again. Cha even thinks they might be in cahoots, IT’S THAT BAD.

ALSO, Obes goes deep into his vault of stories to tell you about the time he had to learn how to put a condom on wooden dildo…while blindfolded. Yea.

All that and more, this week on The Chicken Social.

Ep 135: Rockets Bout That Action (w/@Fatt_Stacks)

Rockets

Trevor Ariza was not here for the play play

It’s that time once again. Episode 135: Rockets Bout That Action (w/@Fatt_Stacks)

YEEEEERRRRRRRRRR. Welcome back to another episode of The Chicken Social. This week, we’re talking about Cha’s beloved Houston Rockets…THEY ARE ABOUT THAT ACTION. Chris Paul, the floor general, is taking his duties off the floor. What do we mean by that?

Then we look at Martin Luther King Jr. Day and how it annoys Obes beyond belief. How could it be that a day in remembrance and celebration of the greatest American ever could bring Obes such disdain?

And, finally, we talk to @Fatt_Stacks about Donald Trump’s racist rhetoric towards black nations and black Americans. He called Haiti and the entire African continent shitholes and thought *only* black people were on welfare. @Fatt_Stacks came to read this man for filth, blood, and everything else.

Welcome back to yet another glorious episode of Nigeria’s favorite podcast*, The Chicken Social.

This week Obes puts America over his knee as tells you why Oprah running for president is a bad idea. We **currently** have an unqualified celebrity, why continue down this same path?

After that, we shift our focus to the New England Patriots. ESPN had a fantastic article last week about the power dynamic between owner Robert Kraft, coach Bill Belichick, and aging star quarterback Tom Brady, but that’s not OUR focus. We wanna talk about why Jimmy Garoppolo doesn’t seem too bright in that article. Mans is making questionable decisions.

Last, but certainly not least, we talk with this week’s guest Tiffany Le (@pholanthropist) about the legal marijuana market as well as Jeff Sessions’ renewed attack on the popular drug. Are we seeing a return to the Drug War?

All that and more on this week’s episode of The Chicken Social.

Ep. 133: Happy New Year, from Tin Clock

New Year

Welcome to episode 133: Happy New Year, from Tin Clock

This week, Obes and Cha are back from the holiday break to their listeners (and each other) a happy new year. After that, the boys talk about the Houston Rockets recent struggles without some key players. Can they get it done if they aren’t at full strength? Then, Obes looks at the year that was: a year of muffled terror. Trump and co. sought to roll back the clock on civil rights and regulation, but how much of that was malice and how much was pure ineptitude? Finally, the boys talk about their new podcast network, Tin Clock. What’s it all about? Only one way to find out. All that and more, this week on The Chicken Social.

Ep 132: Diddy and the Black Panthers (w/ @courtmcox)

Diddy

Is he about to “Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop” his way into NFL ownership?

Welcome to episode 132: Diddy and the Black Panthers

Welcome back to another episode of The Chicken Social. If you’ll recall, a couple weeks ago we had @HumbleTeej on the show. This week, we had his far more accomplished and talented girlfriend Courtney Cox (@courtmcox) on the show to talk about basketball. More specifically, she went deep on Lavar Ball’s decision to put his younger two sons in a Lithuanian basketball league and whether or not that was a good idea. She also begrudgingly talked about how good the Rockets are (they are amazing).

After that, the boys turned their attention squarely on current Carolina Panthers owner Jerry Richardson. The Panthers boss is being investigated by the NFL after Sports Illustrated reported that he’d made at least 4 settlement payments to ex-employees for inappropriate sexual and racial conduct.

Richardson then announced he’d be putting the team up for sale and guess who was first in line to announce their interest in buying it? Diddy. Does he have a chance to be the next owner of the Carolina Panthers?

Ep 131: We Believe Your Allegations (w/@mshenrybabyy)

Welcome to episode 131: We Believe Your Allegations

Everyone’s favorite homegirl Mo (@mshenrybabyy) joined us this week to give a female perspective on the current national reckoning with sexual assault. More specifically, we asked her about the allegations surrounding Matt Lauer and got her opinion on why companies protect sexual abusers like him. We also asked her a very important question: when it comes to sexual assault allegations, where is the line? How many allegations before a resignation and is said resignation enough?

Obes and Cha then looked into what is quickly becoming a more and more real possibility: could Lebron James join the Rockets this offseason? And, if he did, what would that look like? Would that team be able to dethrone the Golden State Warriors?

Last but not least, today is the special election for the Alabama Senate seat between Doug Jones and Roy Moore. Polls suggest the race is too close to call, but how much of a role is MASSIVE voter suppression playing in this election? Can Doug Jones really do this? Additionally, Roy Moore is a credibly accused pedophile, twice disgraced judge, and open bigot. What would say about the state of Alabama if they elected this man to be their representative in the United States Senate?

All that and more on this week’s episode of The Chicken Social.

Ep 130: Delusions of Grandeur 2: Gone Fisher

 

Fisher

The man has found (supposedly) greener pastures

Welcome to episode 130: Delusions of Grandeur 2: Gone Fisher

THIS WEEK ON THE CHICKEN SOCIAL: Obes and Cha go it alone. That’s right: no guest! Show must go on though, fam. So, with that said…coaches are getting fired despite having winning records. Who do these schools think they are?! On one side, you’ve got schools like Minnesota firing themselves out of respectability. On the other hand, Texas A&M fired it’s way into Jimbo Fisher at an exorbitant cost. Will that work out the way the Aggies want?

Then, Obes and Cha take a deeper look into the proposed $89 million pledge by the NFL and the Players Coaltion. It looks great on its face: $89 million over 7 years going towards criminal justice reform, law enforcement/community relations, and education. But, is this deal everything that it seems? No. No, it isn’t.

Finally, the College Football Playoff rankings are out and Alabama got in over Ohio State. Was that the right decision? Again, no probably not.

All that and more on this week’s episode of The Chicken Social.
