podcast January 8, 2024

share close

In this episode, Boonie is joined by our problematic favorite, Brian. We start the conversation by drawing comparisons between Baltimore and Houston and discussing how people in Houston have a better understanding of where to go for fun. We both believe Baltimore has the potential for a vibrant nightlife scene that black Baltimoreans deserve.

Shifting gears, Brian discusses the attraction he finds in designs on women’s nails—heaux nails versus bad bitch nails. The conversation then leads to the importance of good sex in a relationship. If the sex isn’t great, Boonie and Brian know they’ll eventually cheat, and they don’t want to cheat or play games with someone’s feelings at this stage of their lives.
