Woodson—and his slew of equally accomplished namesakes. "Godwyn, Dwayne, Betty, Bunchie and Shawn. What do they have in common?" she asks before launcing into the infectious Lil' Wayne track Mr. Carter. "As Kanye West said, 'I make black history every day. I don't need a month.' And we do

LOTL Radio host Reginald Ford kicks it with disco diva Evelyn "Champagne" King, whose 1977 hit Shame was one of the first records inducted into the Dance Music Hall of Fame, and whose latest single is titled Everybody.

3 Chicks on Lit host Nakea Murray cuts loose with novelists Victoria Christopher Murray and ReShonda Billingsley, whose new page-turner, Sinners & Saints, tells the story of "first ladies" Jasmine Larson Bush and Rachel Jackson Adams, whose hubbies go up for the coveted position of American Baptist Coalition president.

Have you had your healthy dose of reality lately?
There are always at least two sides to every story. Have you ever wondered how someone, who saw the same thing you did, walked away telling a vastly different story? Which version was correct? Which one was the REAL story? Actually, both are! It’s just a matter of perspective.
Joe takes the issues… especially the controversial issues (politics, prejudice, religion, illegal immigration)… and brings in people from different sides to share their viewpoint. This is definitely not a fluff piece. And while no one is attacked, the questions are hard-hitting.
But the conversation is always respectful and you’re sure to learn something new, even if you don’t agree!
If you’ve always wondered how the “other side” thinks and how they’ve arrived at their “stand”, then this is the show for you!
It’s not the right side, it’s not the wrong side, but the REAL side of the issues!
