Cultural critic Shamira Ibrahim consoles Damon while he laments Pittsburgh's removal from Beyonce's international tour. Nestled deep in the heart of Taylor Swift country, Pittsburgh, or as Damon likes to call it, the Paris of Appalachia is the only stop so far to be struck from the tour. Shamira helps Damon unpack why that may be and quantify the effect of the decision of Pittsburgh's black community. Then on Dear Damon, spoken word poet Kyla Jenee Lacey helps Damon advise a listener who doesn't know how to react when R. Kelly's music plays in public.
