We're back! And we're going to be on your feed more than normal this month because it is Black History Month and K has a lot they want to cover!

In this episode, K gives Warren a crash course on different forms of Yoruban Rituals before they watch videos on Egungun and Gelede. They discuss the views from the book Black Theatre: Ritual Performance in the African Diaspora and K forgets how many days are in the month of February during a leap year!

This is always a favorite show of mine, and when I found out that there would be a deep dive on the history of black theater I was excited. I knew K was going to put in mountains of research and I was not wrong. This is a topic I do not know a ton about so getting to listen to this has been super educational.
