About Us

Leigh Crenshaw-Player and Mr. Intrigue have decided to combine their respective knowledge bases of mysticism and science to makes sense of the senseless or at the very least find ways to take care of ourselves while we fight for a more equitable world. Our weekly nerdy rants explore politics, sexuality, class, race, superheroes and so much more as we search for truth. We welcome you to join us on our journey to understand what community and personal responsibility look like at the end of the world.

Episode 23: Patience Zero or How to Get Away With COVID

Episode 22: Get Free Fall or Electile Dysfunction

EAfter a summer of time-traveling your cosmically intertwined hosts are back with a new episode. This episode covers a lot of bases: the Breonna Taylor decision, the passing of Ruth Bader Ginsberg, the upcoming election, capitalism and white supremacy, voting, and the multiple apocalypses facing our world! Most pressingly is our urge to vote and we also encourage you to do so also! In fact, Leigh tells you what she is willing to do for change in this country while Mr. I lends a hand or two... Most excitingly Mr Intrigue reveals his theme for the new year and Leigh explains how that plays into the show's new direction. The journey isn't over kids and there's so much further to go and we will be right here with you along the way. Please stay safe! Wakanda Forever!

ELadies, Gentlemen, and everyone in between this is our last stop on our lost episode tour. We certainly hope you've enjoyed time-traveling with us.

Episode 20 : Youlogy or Unforgivable Blackness 2: The Clapback from Wakanda Part 1

EThis week we are excited and heartbroken to present to you a very special lost episode of the Unconvenient Truth! In January of 2019 (on the low) we did a live show! Even more so was the concept -- A completely black queer sideshow based on Wakanda! The show entitled Unforgiveable Blackness 2: The Clapback from Wakanda! Our excitement is bittersweet as we were sideswiped by the passing of our king Chadwick Boseman. This work was and is a direct result of his influence and we will forever be grateful. Our best wishes and condolences go to his family in this time and we dedicate these episodes to him. This was an amazing one night only show and you will get to listen to the audio with the added bonus of hearing the interviewers talk about that night and their art. This will be part 1 so make sure you return for part 2. Chadwick, we love you and of course WAKANDA FOREVER!

Episode 15 - Mentalitea or Mind the Gap

EThis week your hosts Mr. Intrigue and Leigh Crenshaw- Player talk about gaps: Gaps in their black cultural knowledge, gaps in capitalism, gaps in the education system and gaps in Beyonce's acting ability (All praise due to our lord and savior Queen Beyonce Knowles-Carter, long may she reign). We also speak about the huge gap we fell into with the podcast which turned to a conversation about minding the gaps in our mental health. Remember to stay safe whether you're #EssentialAF or simply #regularAF as we encourage you to fill your synaptic gap with the Unconvenient Truth now recorded every 2 weeks-- because a mind is a terrible thing to lose!

Episode 14 - Fusstrated or Welcome to the Future

EOur cosmically intertwined hosts take this week to discuss the space-time continuum. Since they last spoke the two went to space to renew their spirits and watch asses bounce in zero G. Upon their return to earth they may have passed through a wormhole because, wow! so much has happened, there is a ton to feel and it can be overwhelming. In fact, many of you may have felt the fabric of reality ripping at the seams and may be disheartened... it's ok, Mr. I does too and Leigh has an explanation why. The planet we returned to is in upheaval and our two hosts begin to figure out how they can best help. Perhaps it's by marching? Perhaps it's by voting? Perhaps it's by purchasing Gucci from a local black-owned pop-up shop? The choice could be D all of the above and more because maybe it all is the way forward? When time, space, and opportunity collided you soon realize the necessity of individual events. It's been a long journey, but with a little help from the ancestral plane we can make it together! It's time to tear down systems and build a museum. If you need a social distance approved hug, we gotchu. We love you. We care about you. Stay safe, stay Black, and stay tuned to the Unconvenient Truth.
