Intelligent-ish Talk
Weekly broadcasts

Leave your feelings at the door!

Hotep-Ish is your home for intelligent shit talk. A funny weekly radio show that discusses current events with an intelligent twist. We take the news of the day and find learning lessons, so we can grow from the events that grab our attention in the news. Host Dwann B brings historical context to show topics, and discussions.

The word Hotep is an ancient Kemetic (Egyptian) word that means “to be at peace”. Over the last few years mainstream publications have tried their best to bastardize the word Hotep by calling people into Ancient Egyptian history “Hoteps”. Instead of allowing them to berate the name, I decided to embrace it. I love history. John Henrik Clarke says “all history is a current event”. In other words events and policies from the past effect our lives today. So if our love for history and black people makes us “hoteps”, we embrace that! Self love is the first step to universal love. All are welcomed to join in and listen.

I’m a humorist. I love to laugh, and make people laugh. I love to think and make people think. Talking shit is an old pastime of mine. As smart and intelligent as we get, we get just as ignorant and profane. Life is about balancing the profound and profane. Thats why in my logo I have the “Ma’at” symbol instead of a dash. Ma’at means truth harmony and balance. We speak truth, we are harmonious. And balanced with intelligence with ignorance!
