Getting Ignorant With It

Getting Ignorant With It

Started in 2019, “Getting Ignorant With It” was born from the perceived differences between its hosts, comedienne Shonda Nicole and critic Amari Allah. However, through conversations about the latest in movies, television, and pop culture, as well as topics such as family, trauma, and life, there was understanding, empathy, and commonality discovered. But, often, it’s just a slew of inappropriate jokes, anecdotes, and our hosts being/getting ignorant. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.... Show More

In the 2020 season finale, it is a time of reflection over what's next in life. Not in the form of New Year's Resolutions, but more so where we are now and what's keeping us from getting to be where we want.
