So I’m not all that familiar with the right-wingish site Ace of Spades but was drawn there earlier today, when the eponymous blogger unleashed a righteous rant and threatened to bust out the “banhammer”: If you have a racial axe to grind, if you are kind of pissed off about minorities, stop posting on the Read More
Both Shani and Jamelle were guest-bloggers at The American Prospect‘s TAPPED blog last month, doing bang-up work and considerably upping the incidence of hip-hop lyrics as blog post titles over there. Not to be outdone, quadmoniker is headed to The Prospect in a more permanent role, replacing the dope, departed Dana Goldstein as an associate Read More
Jamelle, our resident political wunderkind, is guest-blogging over at The American Prospect‘s TAPPED blog, the esteemed outfit where Shani was putting in work a few weeks ago.* Go holler at him there. (Yo, why is the Prospect stealing all my bloggers?)
…and stay a while. Welcome to the ‘new’ PostBourgie. The new design has been up for a couple of days, but I thought we’d welcome you all formally to our new digs. On the front end, things are bright white, and on the backend we’ve moved to a new host. That’s right, y’all, we’re official. Read More

In addition to moderating the dry runs for our forthcoming podcast and helping us switch hosting services, PB’s jill-of-all-trades Shani-o is pulling guest-blogger duty over at The American Prospect‘s TAPPED blog. (And she’s dangerously excited like Jesse Spano!) Go holler at her there!
A few years back, a cadre of liberal Jewish political bloggers like Ezra Klein, Spencer Ackerman, and Dana Goldstein began making online waves, and a lot of their critics took to calling them “the Juice Box Mafia” on account of their being so freakishly young. The PB fam is hardly as influential, but our horde Read More
We’ve been in the lab trying to to get a podcast up and running, and we plan to go live in early November. We’re pretty amped about it, but so far we haven’t been able to come up with a name. Suggestions welcomed. Nay! Suggestions desperately needed. If you have any clever ideas — and Read More
I can’t remember the first person who linked to this blog or shouted out one of our posts. The feeling is a jolt, that fizzy, writerly mixture of pride for being acknowledged and neuroses about whether you just said something really dumb or really poorly. It still feels that way, maybe more so as the Read More
PostBourgie took the popular vote for Best Political/News Blog in the Black Weblog Awards. I think we’ll keep y’all around.
