Show Notes

It's a brand new year (we think) and co-hosts Jamal Sterling & Khalilah Elliott are back with an all-new episode of Whatever We Want with Jay & Kay  to kick off 2023.

The pair dive right in reflecting on the hilarious political theater that was Kevin McCarthy's recent bid for Speaker of the House and the historical appointment of Brooklyn's own son Hakeem Jeffries to Minority House Leader. 

Kay also makes a shocking declaration that proves that the hip hop generation continues to evolve all while the co-hosts reflect on social media challenges that go too far, the problem with the "these kids today" mentality, and the recent confrontation between a 6-year old student and a teacher that ended in gunfire. 

The pair also highlight a recent lawsuit brought by a Seattle school district against tech giants that alleges that social media is causing a mental health crisis among young people and the danger of assuming we have more time to value those we love.
