Happy New Year! Welcome to the first episode of #TSRP of 2019! We start the new year off with some of Spann’s Random Thoughts, and reflections from the holiday season, and then we go into the top 5 things that happened in the world that should be left right back in 2018. We then hop right In The News, as Michelle Obama was named the most Admired Woman of 2018, a Pennsylvania court has ruled that a mother’s drug use during her pregnancy isn’t child abuse. And a Ring Doorbell catches two would-be home invaders on video. We move on to Blue Blazes, where a man who’s dubbed himself “The Sperminator”is donating his sperm to women all over the world. Even rendering his services in public restrooms. And has Sesame Street gone rater R? Video has been raging across social media of Sesame Street character Grover apparently dropping an F-Bomb. But is that really what he said? And in Special Hotep Unit, we’re introduced to Joel Fedd, who tried to claim a home worth around $500K in Georgia, because he’s a member of the “Indigenous Moors.” The home was his attempt at “claiming back the land.” We’ve got Cheaper To Keep Her news too, as Love & Hip Hop stars Safaree Samuels and Erica Mena are now engaged. But is this a real relationship, or just a ploy for yet another “very special Love & Hip Hop wedding?” And in Proud To Be American, the shooter at Parkland Florida’s Stoneman-Douglass High School is revealed to have been a staunch Trump Supporter, A racist Oregonian woman attacks a black family over a parking space, and while holiday shopping in Macy’s a customer got upset because two store employees were speaking in Arabic with each other while serving him. And of course, we’ve got ourAssHat & Champ of The Week announcements to get 2019 started right. So let’s get 2019 cracking with some podcasting yall. Right here, and right now here at The Spann Report!
