Kenrya: Come here. Get off.
Erica: Hey. Thank you. Thank you, thank you, thank you for a real official air horn, but because I know y'all are missing it, [air horn noise].
Kenrya: You so damn loud. That was actually pretty good.
Erica: Because it had to be loud, like an air horn.
Kenrya: Yeah, yeah. I liked it. So clearly we never really left y'all, we hype as hell because season three of The Turn On starts…now?
Erica: Well, not really right now, but tomorrow. So we back, bitches. Motherfuckers, we back. I know y'all miss that. Maybe I belong in a ’70s doo-wop or barbershop quartet.
Kenrya: Okay. But can you harmonize?
Erica: I can't harmonize, but I can come up with some really raunchy songs.
Kenrya: Okay. I feel like that you could match up with somebody who could harmonize and that shit will be the shit.
Erica: Lick my pussy. Lick it, lick it, stick it, lick it, lick it, stick it, yeah. And then can't you hear other people hitting the highs and lows and modulating? I don't know what the fuck modulating means, but I just know it sounds great. Okay.
Kenrya: You been watching “Hamilton.” “Don't modulate the key, then not debate with me.”
Erica: Don't be having our stuff taken down because we're including too much shit. But I don't even pay attention that much to words.
Kenrya: Oh, okay. Well.
Erica: Okay, any damn.
Erica: We've been on a tangent. Go.
Kenrya: It's fine. We're excited because the show is coming back and we have some new shit. So first of all, this season is going to see the launch of the Turn On Book Club. It's something we probably should have been doing, but-
Erica: Mm-hmm (affirmative). We got you all reading.
Kenrya: ... It's really exciting that we're doing it now. Yeah, so now we can read together. So if you want to join us in the book club, it's really easy. We're going to have live virtual club meetings where you can get on with us and see our faces. Oh shit.
Erica: Oh shit.
Kenrya: Oh shit.
Erica: And kick it with us.
Kenrya: Yes. It's going to be fun. And the way that you can get in is to just go over to TheTurnOnPodcast.com/Patreon and support the show at the “Just the Tip” level.
Erica: Just the tip.
Kenrya: Just the tip.
Erica: Just the tip.
Kenrya: It's not a huge commitment. It's just a little taste.
Erica: Just a little [inaudible 00:02:38]. A taste.
Kenrya: Exactly. And if you do that, then you'll get an exclusive invite to join us in our quarterly book club meetings, which is pretty fucking dope.
Erica: Yeah. I'm excited about this. I'm excited to see y'all faces and get y'all feedback. And look, let's be honest. If y'all anything like me, I've been a part of book clubs; I didn't read them shits, but I show up to kiki with my people.
Kenrya: Remember the last one we did? And that's what we did. And mostly everybody hadn't even read the book.
Erica: You know how some people just show up with the book and be like, "Well, I read it on the way over here"? These bitches was just like, "Who got the Rotel dip?"
Kenrya: I was so annoyed. I was happy to have y'all in my house, but I was like, "Really, bitches?" Anyway, it was fine.
Kenrya: For this one we want y'all to actually read the book, but even if you don't, you get to kick it with us.
Erica: Come anyway.
Kenrya: Exactly. So we're excited.
Erica: Okay. So first, book club. Up next, we are debuting a new segment called What's Turning Us On? That was me trying to be like Kenrya. Okay. So this segment, essentially, what we do is talk about some new things that are turning us on, and we're giving you a chance to get turned on too. So, we want you to submit a five star review because we five stars chicks. That's a five star chick. I tried. In my mind it went much smoother than it actually did. Anyway-
Kenrya: Y'all missed. There was a little twerk that went with it. A little light twerk.
Erica: A light twerk.
Erica: So, submit a screenshot of your five-star review to our podcast. Email TheTurnOnPodcast@gmail.com to be entered in our monthly raffle, and you might get some very sexy mail from us.
Kenrya: Yes. I like it. But that's not the best thing.
Erica: Well, what is?
Kenrya: Bitch, we got merch.
Erica: Merch, merchandise. You can rock our faces on your chest or your booty or the side of your leg.
Erica: I don't know if we doing all that. Okay. Anyway.
Kenrya: I mean, I feel like we are, so that works really well. Yep. Yeah, t-shirts, pop sockets, tote bags, all the shit.
Erica: Show people that you are a sexually aware and in touch with yourself type of folks.
Kenrya: Mm-hmm (affirmative). And you Black as fuck.
Erica: You Black as fuck.
Kenrya: Because there's that.
Erica: Or if you're not Black as fuck, you support Black as fuck folks.
Kenrya: Yes, which is also very important.
Erica: Yeah. So on our website, we have the link to our store. Please represent.
Kenrya: It's going to be, TheTurnOnPodcast.com/Merch, will get you there.
Erica: Yep. So yeah, go on over there, see what you like, buy something.
Kenrya: But either way-
Erica: And represent. [inaudible 00:05:29]. Wait. That was the wrong one. I got too excited. I couldn't think about it.
Kenrya: What is that?
Erica: That was supposed to be an air horn, but it was just more of an excited squeal.
Kenrya: Like when the DJs drop the bombs.
Kenrya: Yes, that.
Erica: Renegade, renegade, renegade.
Kenrya: Oh my God. So as Erica is making quite clear, it's a celebration.
Erica: Yeah. I'm just happy to be back with y'all. It's been a long ass summer. We have been just struggling, drudging through this shit. I'm happy to see y'all.
Kenrya: It's going to be dope.
Erica: Hear from y'all. Be back.
Kenrya: Yeah. We'll see y'all tomorrow, yo.
Erica: Tomorrow. Wait, there's a song.
Kenrya: Tomorrow? It's a bunch of songs.
Erica: Oh, “tomorrow”-
Kenrya: “Tomorrow we'll be-“
Erica: Oh, that's the one I was thinking.
Kenrya: Oh, see I went Black.
Erica: No, I was thinking of one and I'm like, I know there's a Black one. With little Tevin Campbell singing his ass off.
Kenrya: Little Tevin Campbell. Yeah.
Erica: Now, I'm going to have to listen to that.
Kenrya: It's beautiful, still.
Erica: “Get up, get out, get into it. Get it on.” Okay. Our guy, Brandon-
Kenrya: He's going to be like-
Erica: ... Fade this out. Get up, get out, get into it, get it on. To be strong. The [inaudible 00:06:41]. Tomorrow will be.
