Episode 133: Taylor Swift – Miss Americana

So, doccalo. We’ve come. The true start of our farewell that happens to be also our final full documentary episode discussion and it involves two men (Bob and Akil) wandering near the edges of middle age discussing a gigantic pop star that neither of them know anything about. We’re chatting about the Netflix original documentary series “Miss Americana” and it is all about the singer Taylor Swift. What is it about the safety of Swift’s music that draws people in? Does her fame yield the typical shallow personality of a celebrity or is she in on the joke? Will Bob and Akil becomes fans? Sit back and hear us out for a “rock” doc with surprisingly little music in it. Swift Heads come at us. If you little shit-heads want some then email us at AKILFROMTHEDOCUMENTEERSPODCAST@hotmail.com if you coward shit-heads have the guts. If you want to talk shit to our faces then come down to where Akil lives at 513 King Richards Ct. Franklin, TN 37067 if you have any speck of backbone and say it to him directly. I bet you won’t because you’re scared. Pussy.

Remember this?

What about this?

OK, that’s enough reminiscing.

Seriously. That’s enough.




Episode 132: Tiny Shoulders, Rethinking Barbie

Barbie, from mall ditz to thicc queen, the doll has been a cultural sensation since the moment it hit the shelves. As you can imagine, a cavalcade of variating voices criticizing and praising a piece of plastic go down in Angela and Bob’s discussion of Andrea Nevin’s Hulu documentary “Tiny Shoulders, Rethinking Barbie”. The history of Barbie and it’s road towards a body size that makes sense has been an awkward road with sexism and feminism playing out at the same time throughout the decades. Our conversation is all over the place and only the tip of the iceberg when discussing a lot of social ramifications regarding the most iconic doll ever. Maybe someday Barbie can represent people with functioning genitalia. The genital struggle is real. Keep on Doccin’

The trailer.

Oh snap.

That dude at the end… 

Shorties 63: Celebrities “Imagine”

In these times of uncertainty, all of us can collectively agree that the last thing we need are celebrities singing overused songs into their smart phones. Gal Gadot may mean well, but what her and her friends left us with has got to be the most uninspiring bit of privileged back-patting ever. Every celebrity in this video, even the ones we like, are on notice. It’s fortunate we got Comrade Britney Spears and Comrade Cardi B to get us through this with solidarity and clarity. Watch and learn, Gadot. Angela and Bob apologize for having anyone sit through, yet again the “Celebrities Imagine” song video. It seems like many agree on this but our take is the last true final word on this. It’s worth it. Keep on Doccin’

Cringe here.

The Trumpet playing thing Gadot aped.


Solidarity forever.
