  1. Hey Rod and Karen,

    So this rant is a bit off-topic, since I’ve been catching up with the podcasts, but I just wanted to say THANK YOU VERY MUCH for making me privy to the unfulfilled IHOB desires of you and the other listeners. As a “gastronomical conservative”, I spent the rest of the day snickering at food innuendo like,
    “Lay that Swiss cheese down on that crepe” , or
    “Squeeze that beef between them silver dollar cakes” and
    “Fill them Belgian holes up with that Mambo sauce and white meat” (lol. I’m corny)

    On another note, thank you for taking time to talk about the Everything is Love album. Have you ever noticed that Beyonce has never discussed the gender quality/ personhood of Blue until she was of age to begin coming into it on her own? Many people will start attributing feminine or masculine behavior or traits to their child based off what they wish or believe they will become. But in this in album, Beyonce talks about giving Blue her vintage dresses, and success without the limitations of “the glass ceiling” which is closely associated to womanhood; and this is the first time I’ve heard her speak about her that way. They also both refrain from characterizing Rumi and Sir in the same manner.

    You were right that this is the album that we need but don’t realize it. Sonically, it delivers instrumentally and with B’s voice the creativity that people often ask of the industry but will sleep on. Also, the notion of love, freedom, forgiveness, legacy, and- my personal, petty favorite- the addressal of people’s desire to control who B is and how she presents herself. Phew! So much to unpack there.

    Anyway, I hope to be seeing you guys soon at the live show, and to hear more of your food news and fantasies, so you can continue “shoving down my throat and rubbing it all in my face”.

    Love you both! Keep on keeping on.
