On this week's episode, the crew (minus Corey—sorry, no #LawrenceHive report this week) breaks down the episode we've more or less all been waiting for, the one where Issa and Molly "talk." We see Lawrence and Issa trying to get that old thing back and did Condola catch the Judy Winslow treatment??? All that and more (including, finally, a "Looking for LaToya" update!) on Bourbon & Bouches!!!
June 2, 2020
On this week's podcast we discuss episode 8, "Lowkey Happy," which gives us all Lawrence and Issa all the time. They take a trip down memory lane and then an actual walk through ArtWalk, revisiting their relationship and discussing the what ifs. This means our LawrenceHive report is gon' be banoodles. So join us for this week's discussion; it's a good one for what was a very, very good episode of Insecure.

On this week's episode of Insecure, "Lowkey Trippin'" we get into eatin' ass with model minorities! The whole crew is locked and loaded! Corey's LawrenceHive report finally has an update as does Janay's "Looking For Latoya" report! Ultimately the crux of the episode is Andrew and Molly's trip to Mexico where both sparks, racism and fuckery fly. The discussion points were aplenty and the tangents were fresh, dressed like a million bucks! Enjoy and have a Black one with Bourbon and Bouches!

Lawrence and Condola were the gift that keeps on giving: did Lawrence invite himself to Condola's Friendsgiving or did she invite him? Is Lawrence over Issa? Is Condola getting the version of Lawrence that Issa was hoping for? What does Condola even want? All of these questions are discussed plus the Lawrence Hive Report, the update on Looking for Latoya and some Advictions!!! Issa good one y'all!
