This week's episode is all about Caribbean Carnival vibes, not on the islands south of the U.S. though, but actually right here in the Big Easy. New Orleans is known for many things. Being the northernmost Caribbean city, however, isn't widespread knowledge. Since Geronimo is a half-blooded Trinidadian and looks for any opportunity to be in the mix, we decided to bring in Joel Hitchcock Tilton + Trini Cindy - the minds behind the four-day long celebration known as NOLA Caribbean Experience. Geronimo talks with them about what inspired the festival (4:48), Caribbean culture spreading across the world (14:41), the actual NOLA Caribbean experience (24:41), what it takes to organize the festival each year (29:34), and Random Aside (42:52). Six years in and still going strong. If you're in New Orleans June 20th-24th, you should be there. #NecessaryListeningCollins + Keys N°1 is Now Available.

Something we're good at doing on The All the Fly Kids Show is pivoting on the fly. Our guest needed to reschedule due to a family emergency and as the universe would have it, we got a last minute invite to a Memorial Day cookout.

Is it a wrap for Instagram influencers? Culture and lifestyle vertical, Quartzy, recently published an article entitled “Instagram Influencers Are Out, Slackers Are In” (https://bit.ly/2DGdkV8) to answer this question. We break down this article and get into the details of being an Instagram influencer and answer the question of whether it’s even possible to be a modern-day slacker. We also talk about Jay Z’s Nipsey Hussle inspired freestyle he performed at his B-Sides show in NYC on Friday, along with Black influence inside and outside the hood. Last and definitely not least, Robert smoked weed over the weekend and his recap is probably the funniest thing you’ll hear all day. #NecessaryListeningSpeaking of Instagram, shout out again to our viewers for watching and giving their takes on “influencing vs slacking.” We’re reading listener/viewer comments and questions each week.

Since Nipsey Hussle's passing, there have been even more conversations being had among Blacks about opening businesses, community investment, putting each other on, and showing all facets of culture throughout the diaspora.
