Episode 88: I Got Indian In My Family
This week, we're trying something a little different: we team up with our friends at WNYC's Only Human podcast to find Tracy's roots. Growing up in Louisville, Kentucky, she always heard that her ancestors were, in her mother's words, "black, white and American Indian." But, like many black Americans, she's found it hard to trace her family heritage with ancestors forced into the American slave trade. So Tracy turns to DNA ancestry tests, and experts on DNA and race, to find out where she comes from. Follow Only Human: @OnlyHuman Follow us: @HeavenRants and @brokeymcpoverty Email us:

Shot #9: Members Only
Sometimes you just gotta get together and laugh with your friends, which is why this week's shot features two of our faves: Nichole Perkins, BuzzFeed Emerging Writers Fellow and Aaron Edwards, who does product and editorial at The Outline. This week there's a righteous game of Pew Pew Pew with friends and a conversation that goes from how you protest, to awkward dates, to cuss words and jivesicles. Go ahead and consider how doing drugs with Donald Trump might be genius and quantify exactly what you'd do to *not* have to watch your parents having sex. Follow these cool kids!
