Black Girls Talking #35: Reagan Gomez, All Shonda Everything, and MORE

We're briefly joined by Reagan Gomez who gives us the details on her awesome and much needed webseries. Then it's onto the discussion which includes the return of Shonda Thursdays (obviously), our new love "How to Get Away With Murder (obviously), Scandal, and Queen Viola's ***flawless response to that terrible, awful NYT piece. Speaking of news outlets, we discuss the current state of diversity (in some cases lack thereof) at the New York Times, Buzzfeed, Jezebel, and our high hopes for Roxane Gay's new gig, The Butter. Other topics include National Hero: Charlo Greene, Ramou's Best Night Ever featuring OPRAH, and a few listener letters (warning: don't start none won't be none).
