Shaquille O’Neal is having a lot of fun on his podcast. Nischelle Turner and Spice Adams, as his co- hosts, also have great fun along with him. They on everything from music and sports to what’s trending in pop culture. It becomes much funnier when Shaq invites a celebrity guest to his podcast.  They are all hilarious because when Shaq is involved, entertainment is guaranteed. In the recent episode, during the last few minutes of the show, they were touching on a few topics. One of them turned out to be “too much information” for all the three co-hosts on the show.

NFL veteran Spice Adams started talking about Joel Baumann and his “herpes” problem. All of them started to balk at it. Adams started off with this saying, “That man said he had like 30 all-nighters and he started saying he had a herpes outbreak”. Nischelle mentioned it was twice to which Spice Adams balked and replied, “What? This is too much information as a person. That man said he had two outbreaks in a week.” Shaq said, “So does that mean as a fighter, you don’t want to fight him now”. Turner mentioned that herpes is a sexually transmitted disease to Shaq and does not spread through fighting. Shaq further stated, “He had 30 all-nighters. Damn.”
