Hello and welcome to the Queencast! We are Alex, Debra, and Soha. Three women from three different places, with three different lives. But when we unite in the Q Formation...WE BECOME THE QUEENCAST! The Queencast is an amazing audio adventure where no topic is taboo and where all voices are valuable. Join us on this journey and maybe you too will discover the keys to the Queendom!!!

This week on the Queencast, half of the cast is too sick to record a new episode! So instead we break the emergency glass on an episode that we recorded waaaay back in Olden Times (about three weeks ago when Alex was still in Mexico). In this episode, we try to get to the bottom of cryptocurrency. What is it? Can you buy stuff with it? Is it even real? Spoiler: We don't really know, and we don't really come to any conclusions one way or the other. But one thing we can say for sure is that the best investment of all is love. And if you came for the food talk, don't worry...we get to that. And that's when Debra drops the most shocking bombshell of all: She doesn't like pizza that much.

In this special Valentine's Day episode of The Queencast, we decide to talk about what we all REALLY love: Stuff! And Things! But if you want to get specific, it's mostly food.

Whether that's good or bad is up to you, but there's no denying that you'll be hungry when all is said and done.

Put on your adult diapers and join Soha, Debra, and Michael for this exciting new episode of The Queencast! In this episode, they discuss terrible spelling errors, reclaimed words and racism in popular media, and...modeling school?

And though perhaps not everything is for you, you can comfort in knowing that the Queencast always will always provide you with the quality of content you deserve.
Here's the video about using words that Michael talked about in the episode, and the video is of Ta-Nehisi Coates, not Common. Michael would like to apologize for not remembering who was actually in the video. https://youtu.be/QO15S3WC9pg

Cool J comes up, but it's nothing a little MORE talk about the Kardashians can't fix. And finally, we ask the important question: Which celebrity would you be most upset about if you discovered they were a monster?
It's not a particularly serious episode but I mean, come on. Not every episode has to be so serious, right? Laughter is important, too!

Alex is away on vacation for this episode, but that doesn't mean the rest of us are at a loss for words to discuss important current events such as Russia's involvement with elections and Kevin Spacey's involvement with Netflix. We also discuss the importance of unions. And the whole time, the rich keep getting richer while the poor keep getting poorer. But don't let the description bring you down, because we still manage to have some laughs in spite of the cursing, the sweating, and the crying.

From there we not-so-gracefully transition to talking about how the witch costume negatively affects women, which leads to discussion about our Halloweens past and some of our great (and not so great) costume histories. Oh! And there are some ghost stories.
