Episode 278 TNFro is Reading The Viola and First Ladies, Jenifer M-F ing Lewis,10-Foward or Quarks Pop Round-Up


Finishing reading The Viola’s memoir… over there and such and there Bahahahah, Of course, I and my poop cherry tomatoes still be out country by the Viola!!!


Jenifer Lewis…The Mama of Black Hollywood and she is hot…Talented, Bipolar Sex Addict

Starting in I Love That for you


Love does not judge

Ten Forward or Quark’s 



       SCOTUS Da-Fuck


  I used to scoff at people making this statement. Maybe because of its simplicity or maybe because it sounded more like an admonishment that I was being everything but kind. But then when I started investigating it for myself that’s when I realized, that I was confusing politeness with kindness. Politeness is a fake superficial manner which required no investment and no self-reflection. But being kind is an adjective,  it is an action. If you are kind to yourself first it’s like exercise memory you will continue and will be kind to others.  Let that sit with you for a while.  I am being kind to myself.  I’ll be kind to others. Very simple. Repeat. 


Lean into the spirit of the New Year by counting your blessings, giving to others, and spreading happiness! I know I will!

It is the beginning of a New Year so be kind to your mind and others. Give love to receive love.

TNFro Is Reading…Water Dancer, Where Are the Black Millenial Millionaires, and WestwardFro The Saga Continues


TNFro Is Reading Oct 21ish

In today’s segment we will begin with Black Excellence and National Cool Tributes to UN Women Executive Director Phumzile Mlambo Ngcuka, Will Smith, and Michael Jordan. With National Cool Kudos going out to Lenny Pozner and the Otter Network, Andrew Levy in the Kindness Begets Kindness. And where are all of the Black Millionaire Millennials?


We will also talk Invites and Disinvites to the BBQ with a dose of Side Eye.

Read our Book Alerts

Starting by a continued reading from the Water Dancer, Respectful Obituaries, and Who is still on the NY Times Book Review Beast seller list.

I will continue with Chattabooks and My Read with edits of the next chapter of the Making of #WestwardFro and concluding with My Affirmations.

Also a note on podcast notes…every time I broadcast and research topics for my show, I learn. I realized that no one, not no, not no how(projecting the not so Cowardly Lion) has detailed show notes, no pictures or maps. So going forward I will save those details for my blog and Medium posts.

TNFro Is Reading…The Rewrite of The Only Black Dude on the Mayflower, The Making Of Westward Fro The Guidebook and Other Selections



 The following was taken from The Making of Westward ‘Fro A Guidebook.

Okay you have to hum the next verses to the tune of The Beverly Hillbillies in your head as you sing the following verses to yourself…

Here’s a little story about a girl with a Fro 

Who drove 3500 miles with an RV in tow

Little did she know she would get caught in snow 

A late storm that is

In April…

On the Donner trail in the high sierras…


Well first thing you know the story could have ended right there.

But she persevered showed up in Oregon no worse for wear 

Oregon turned out NOT

The place she needed to be

So eight months later she packed up her truck and headed back East to Tennessee


Hills that is, 


candied bacon, 

single malt whiskey…This is a story of a meandering trip across the United States, the start of the Adventures of #WestwardFro, and then my becoming #TNFro which is available on Wander on Vocal+ Media. Navigate there and let me know what you think.

I hope this demonstrates how much fun I have had creating this piece and the Podcast overall. This one was particularly long because I had so much to say in Black Excellence highlighting recently passed Diahann Carroll and National Cool.

I also had a particularly chatty time talking about Invites to the BBQ, and how Biden is losing cool points in his lack of coherent response. I talk about who I am giving the Side Eye with a comprehensive breakdown of the Ukraine Scandal and people in the people of rural America why Dems may not be able to win them over. 

I will highlight promising books and other works in Literature News and other Random -Ish.

My Chattabooks and Read is the longest yet because I am still reading Water Dancer by T. Coates. Also, I recorded my final edits for the Making of Westward Fro for Vocal+ live, I rewrote a chapter The Only Black Dude on the Mayflower which is available on my author website, https://www.feliciabaxter.com/rewrite-the-only…and-crazy-behind/ for your review. I also answered with Lupita Nyong’o questions from the New York Times By The Book

I will end the podcast with my Daily Affirmations but I will leave you with one from Joel Osteen right now,

I am supposed to do better

I deserve to be successful

Because I will do and have done the work.

TNFro Is Reading ee cummings and My own Stuff


“next to of course god america i
love you land of the pilgrims’ and so forth oh
say can you see by the dawn’s early
country ’tis of
 centuries come and go
and are no more.
 what of it we should worry
in every language even deafanddumb
thy sons acclaim your glorious name by gorry
by jingo by gee by gosh by gum
why talk of beauty what could be more beaut-
iful than these heroic happy dead
who rushed like lions to the roaring slaughter

they did not stop to think they died instead
then shall the voice of liberty be mute?”

He spoke. And drank rapidly a glass of water

Next to of course God america i By e. e. cummings

ee cummings a pacifist I don’t think would understand the militarization of every regime in the world including our own, he would be horrified with what is going on in the border, and he would be making memes all day everytime POTUS opens his mouth.  I will discuss this poem the 2020 Democratic Candidate Line up, Chattabooks and a lot more in this week’s episode of #TNFroIsReading.

TNFro Is Reading The Librarian of Auschwitz and 4 other books


Welcome to another episode of of #TNFroIsReading. And this is chatty #TNFro broadcasting. Try as I might, the episode still is over 30 minutes, I will endeavor to shave it down, but people keep saying or doing stupid stuff.

Part 1. Shameless commercial plug for my book, #NotMyFamilyWhenTiesShouldNotBind available on Barnes and Noble, Walmart, and Amazon.

Part 2. I will talk about my Daily Affirmation, which are the Felicia I will and I ain’t doing that list.

Part 3. I have added a TNFro Medical Minute, because you can take the girl out of the hospital but not the hospital out of the girl. This portion will discuss commercial insurance trivia and holistic medicine tidbits.

Part 4. I will talk about my Unwoke Chronicles, because I am 2 years behind who should be cancelled and I don’t agree.

Part 5. I have the Who Will be Invited or Disinvited to the BBQ, my take take on the 2020 Democratic Nominations.

Part 6. My dream and list of books and wines for Chattabooks and Winebrary.  That grumpy proprietor of All Books may get an offer.

Part 7 I will round it out by having a reading from #NotMyFamily and my answers to the Proust Questionnaire.

And then it’s a wrap for the episode. Really Chatty, but hopefully entertaining.

TNFro Is Reading The Librarian of Auschwitz and Letters to A Young Poet


This reading is not light summer fare, I am reading stories of courage and encouragement. 


“She had boarded the reading train. That night Dita felt the thrill of discovery, of knowing that it didn’t matter how many hurdles all the Reichs in the world put in her way, she’d be able to jump over them by opening a book.” The Librarian of Auschwitz, pg 85.

Sip and Read with @NCFro, Tales of Genji, White Trash and The Warmth of Other Suns


I will never win the lottery, but I think my boredom and distaste for conventional forms of entertainment has pushed my intent to create content that uplifts and entertains me, but it should be shared with the world. The distractions of adult life, like my day job, prohibits my ability to create better content. It takes time to do all of this y’all, and time is money. The research and scripting, albeit loose scripting, will only improve with attention to the editing and then publication. So please become a patron if you want more for NC and TNFro go to https://patron.podbean.com/TheTalkingFro to become a patron today! Thanks!

And if you are 21 years or older, your purchase of Wine from Traveling Vineyard will support my dream of having a 200 bottle Eurocave to host my bookcase in the steps and at home book readings just sayin’

I will be sippin Activist a 2016 Syrah from my on line vineyard and giving my thoughts on Tales of Genji, White Trash and The Warmth of Other Suns

2 Words and Thought, Not So Random By TNFro, The Unpoet

How many licks to the center of a tootsie roll pop? 

3 according to the owl, 364 according to engineering students at Purdue.

How many words to release a soul?


What are they?

Accelerated Resignation.

You mean I can leave, right now? Yes.

Cool. Most freeing of words ever spoken.

I do.

What will you do and when?

Marry him?

Nope, I have never been asked.

Thank God.

You dodged a bullet.

Survivor Guilt.

Feeling bad secondary to living through a tragedy.

Realizing the tragedy is time lost never to be regained and the moment always being on autoplay making rest impossible.

Buyer’s Remorse

Purchase of a home, car, plus sized onesie, that’s not hot.

Can I take it back?

Pathetic Loser

Most of the guys I have dumped. I wonder if they thought the same about me.

What will you do for a…?

Fill in the blank. Klondike Bar, Louis Vuitton Purse, Hermes scarf?

Evidently work 100 hours per week for 20 years straight.

Purpose of all of this?

Random thoughts or precise observations.

You decide. 

#NCFroIsReading Rosa Guy’s Wade


I will be reading excerpts from Rosa Guy’s Wade a short memoir of a young Black soldier’s coming of age during World War II in France. He discovers his life is worth living after he murders a racist fellow soldier. (I Know Right?!?!)

I also will be giving a synopsis of the life and musical stylings of the late great Etta James who survived severe abuse at the hands of the men that were supposed to protect her and an industry that underestimated her talent and influence on every genre. 

I will also play a little bit of Duke Ellington, the coolest cat in Swing Jazz…just because I can!

#NCFroIsReading is Enjoying Short Stories from African American Women Across the Century


Today is International Women’s Day and I choose to celebrate by reading amazing short stories from African American women writers from Jean Toomer, Ann Petry, circa 1958, with the only male, Jessie Fauset, circa 1919 to Terry McMillan circa 1991. I have enjoyed the sultry stylings of Lady Day aka Billie Holiday, tragic figure, talented songstress, amazing talent. She once said,” I never hurt nobody but myself and that’s nobody’s business but my own.”
