Another Round, Episode 31: You Gon' Get This Blackness

On this week's episode: Tracy's Joke Time, a dispatch from Morehouse and Spelman's homecoming, and a conversation about HBCUs, media diversity, and Garden Twitter with Shani Hilton.

It's Podcast Tuesday and, per usual, Drake just can't contain his excitement.

This week we're thrilled to top off BuzzFeed's AMAZING HBCU coverage by chatting with Howard University alum and queen of BuzzFeed News, Shani Hilton!

We also hear some beautiful stories of HBCU life from Spelman, Morehouse, and Clark Atlanta grads, courtesy of our very own Essence Gant and Hannah Giorgis!

And we also see the return of Tracy's Joke Time! This guy heard it and has been doing this ever since.

Here are 7 random things you can look forward to hearing this episode:

1. "My dad was like, 'Here's the deal: if you go to Howard, I won't make you major in African American studies."

2. "I'm not a hater! I just have questions. I have follow-up questions."

3. "You're sitting next to a Nigerian national in a velvet blazer and Ferragamo slippers."

4. "Pink Oil: ruiner of pillow cases across the nation."

5. "Don't listen to all these people talking about 'oh, [college is] the best years of your life.' Want better for yourself!"

6. "We know your type, Shani. You like the most beautiful looking horse."

7. "I graduated and then I went natural. The end."
