Happy Hour: A Shot of Conversation

Happy Hour is a weekly podcast hosted by Sofia Stanley, Emile Ennis Jr. and Kennelia Stradwick, that serves listeners a taste of exactly what happens when a lawyer, a host and a comedian, walk into a cyber bar. Listen as they discuss, argue, dissect, analyze anything and everything including sex, religion and politricks. They rarely agree on anything, except that, sometimes the only thing that gets you through the week is, a shot of conversation. At Happy Hour you BYOB, but the tea is on us.

A lawyer, a host and a comedian call a different play this week and make a drink that’s two parts politics, one part justice and one part football.

If you consider yourself a conversational mixologist, then hit play, until the bartender cuts you off.
