    Hi guys,
    First off I’ve been listening to this podcast for a couple of months now on the recommendation of a friend and It’s been a great listen so far. Your varying stances on each topic make your conversations very dynamic and the jokes have me laughing and disturbing my coworkers in the office lol. With regard to the episode BlackLoveMatters, John mentioned Damon Wayans Jr’s character and the actress who plays his wife on the show Happy Endings… that particular on screen relationship was so good for several reasons. It depicted an interracial couple who wasn’t afraid to point it out at strategic moments and their comedic chemistry was on point through out the show’s short life. Lastly, and a bit off tangent, the show also depicted what is probably the most non-stereotypical gay character I have ever watched on tv so far, played by Adam Pally. His lazy, nonchalant, freeloading personality and unassuming looks almost makes you forget his orientation until anyone brings up dating and the show points that out even more by ironically having the rest of the male cast frequently act “more gay” than him. The show, for all its high points, got cancelled too soon as the episode schedule was sporadic leading to a very inconsistent viewership.
