On this episode: SaVon, Alex & Steph discuss the Reddit effect on the stock market and the Need to Know Podcast, itself (07:20). DaniLeigh and DaBaby sparked controversy and a conversation over colorism after she teased her new song, "Yellow Bone" (29:48). While asking if her influence is relevant, do we forget there's a whole generation that does not identify with figures like Beyoncé and Alicia Keys anymore? (46:00) Jamie Foxx makes history as the first Black lead in a Pixar film ever for "Soul," which now stands as the most streamed feature film with 1.7 billion streams. However, why are we still hearing "first Black" anything in 2021? (59:10) Triggered: Does not receiving a text back from someone who's active on social media make you crazy? (1:11:00) Or are people too comfortable in being entitled to your attention at any time of day? Finally, the crew honors Kobe Bryant, Larry King, and Muhammad Ali in discussing self-commitment and pressure (1:35:18) and explains how, "if you're not in the arena, you don't have a say."
