From the Jill Scott/Erykah Badu Verzuz battle to Michelle Obama’s Netflix documentary “Becoming,” the sisters discuss how seeing the sisterhood living their best lives is helping them feel more hopeful about theirs. Plus, on a more s...

Introverts and extroverts on lockdown together: are y’all OK? It’s hard enough dealing with opposing personality types at the best of times—but these are definitely not the best of times.

Babyface (or as he is now called, Shadyface - Google it) and Teddy Riley did a Verzuz battle on Instagram, and it ended up being an epic fail. At least part one of it did. Part two, thankfully lived up to the hype. Lisa tells Sharon all about the shenanigans, the showboating, and the shade, and explains why she thinks that beyond a music battle, it was also a battle of introvert vs. extrovert. Plus: have you ever felt invisible? Th...

As one Facebook meme says: “The Lockdown Endureth Forever.” At least that’s what it feels like. Although, like most introverts, Sharon and Lisa prefer their own space and company (or that of a select few), staying inside and not seeing anybody else is getting a little old. Feels like we’ve gone from FOMO to FOSI (Fear Of Staying Inside). There’s isolation, and then there’s ISOLATION. If loneliness is beginning to affect you, listen...

Like so many others, Sharon and Lisa are trying to stay busy and focused during lockdown, so that the time doesn’t just drift away.

The Piketon Massacre
The Piketon Massacre
On the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Piketon, Ohio - eight members of the Rhoden family were viciously murdered execution style in their homes. Two years later in 2018, their neighbors, the Wagners, were arrested and charged with committing the largest massacre in Ohio’s history. Shocked by the arrests, this once close-knit and religious community remains divided and unable to cope. Was a respected and reputable Piketon family responsible for this unimaginable murder spree? Our team will examine the deep ties that connected both families. We’ll examine the evidence and possible motives for the crimes. For the first time we’ll speak with townspeople, psychological experts, respected investigators, friends and members of both families. Are the Wagners responsible for the murders, and if convicted, will they be executed? Or is it possible that there is still a murderer at large waiting to kill again?
