It's Monday and you must be so confused- but it's our first ever Monday Minority Korner Moment! We help to jump start your week with a quick something, something. Left on the cutting room floor for time last week was Glory's This Week in History (which I guess is now last week in history) but it's good nonetheless. From Abraham Lincoln being shot by disgruntled actors, why is Aresino Hall being mistaken for Wesley Snipes, how many Orlando Blooms are there, and is it ok to be outed once your dead? Looking at you Whitney Houston, as her lover Robyn is revealing all in a tell all book. Getting your week jump started! 

Quote of the Week: 

“You either walk inside your story and own it, or you stand outside your story and hustle for your worthiness.” - Brene Brown

We're joined this week by friend of the podcast, New York comedian Glory Mora! Election day just happened and we talk about all the exciting things happening, and why ya’ll need to mark your calendar for every 1st Tuesday in Nov: go VOTE! Big wins for Queer candidates. James almost dies... AGAIN... from a peanut allergy attack- thanks healthcare system. Is it okay that he used that excuse to get out of things for the next week? Also TI seems to know way too much about his daughter’s hymen- Glory has notes male patriarchy. We both watched American Son, starring Kerry Washington, was on Broadway, now on Netflix for the whole world to see tackling issues on race, police shootings of unarmed Black men and the debate is on! Is it good! Is it effective? Should you watch it? Is Kerry Washington just being Olivia Pope? That segues into our first Korner where James takes a look at since Ferguson, the Michael Brown shooting four years ago, have things changed, are police killing less unarmed Black men, and if not why isn’t the media talking about it? Glory gives us some Dominican History celebrating three Latina activist who changed history: the Mirabel Sisters. Plus James has PSA announcement about jock straps. Glory and James continue to try to name tunes- they're not good at it.

We are passing the baton as we enter in a new era of Minority Korner! We have our new co-host Glory Mora jumping into the fold as we review our two hottest Korners of the past 100 episodes! James and Glory discuss their halloween costumes: Kitty man, and... Pilgrim lady... is Glory Selena or a Pilgrim? Was Glory a model for the House of Dereon? She seems to know a lot about Tina Knowles' design house. Glory also seems hell bent on proving that the center divides in streets are not only called meridian's.. but malls... fact check please! The debate is on whether or not Charmed was... a good show worthy of a cult classic, as Glory does a Charmed rewatch- James and Glory's first debate takes place. Are the Black Buffy/Charmed reboots a good idea? We dig into the archives and bring out two of our BEST korners from the past 100 episodes. First up, remember when James walked us through Disneyland's racist rides. For example do you know the racist movie Splash Mountain is based on? Song of the South, which gave us complicated songs like Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah, and characters like Uncle Remus. James breaks it down! Keeping on the Disney track we celebrate Nnekay's expose on Marry Poppins and the racist undertones. Get ready to have your childhood bubble burst! Here's to the next 200 episodes!

Nnekay stops on by the Maximum Fun Podcast One Bad Mother and has an honest conversation about motherhood, being a new mother, and about biases affecting African American maternal mortality rates and librarians on the front lines of the war on facts. Do we have too specific ideas of what a librarian is? Nnekay also goes over a history of how Minority Korner came to be, and how other celebrities are making Podcasting more chic, but we've been in the game along time. Also, James went to Madonna's very intimate tour Madame X.

Glory's back on the podcast sitting in the co-host chair and she is ready to read all of our astrologies as an unofficial astrologist. Glory saw 'Hustlers' and she has notes- and isn't sure why it's getting Oscar buzz. The Emmy's happened and Billy Porter is inspiring us all: the category is Love! Michelle Williams is showing what it means to be an ally! Keke Palmer lives in a blissful world where she has no idea who Dick Cheney is. Glory got digitally flashed on the subway! In some gay news: Is Mayor Pete Gay enough? What does that even mean? Do people still need to come out as HIV+? Oakland's Gay men's chorus office was vandalized. James is still writing the history wave with random/weird LGBT Facts: what was the oldest gay chat line? We revisit the Sacred Band of Thebes, a group of 300 men who fought, loved, and fucked each other. What does the ancient Chinese saying 'cut of the sleeve' mean? Glory, our resident astrologist lets us know that it's Libra Season and what we can expect. Water signs it's going to be a bumpy season- so find the balance!

James is coming in singing, once again, to another... nasty song! Before the Wonder Twins could even jump into this story, it had already been processed, we're talking about SNL's latest hired (now fired) cast member: Shane Gillis. Can racist jokes be funny? Did SNL make the right move? Why did they hire him? Chelsea Handler's new documentary "Hello, It's Me Privilege," is out on Netflix, and according to James it is mandatory viewing for white folks. Nnekay is still on the fence about Hendler, but is she showing how we can people can evolve, and how we must give space for that? Did the new 'Knives Out Trailer' give out too much of it's plot? Who creates these trailers anyways? James has the scoop on old Hollywood. Hold onto your butts because Kerry Washington and Sterling K. Brown are joining forces in a Mr. & Mrs. Smith esque movie: SHADOW FORCE, and the Wonder Twins can't wait! In the main event Nnekay has found a new website that is singing to her heart and walks us through an article by , about call out culture: 6 Signs that Your Callout is About Ego and not Accountability- a great check for all of us navigating our activism spaces, and trying our best to make the world a better place. James is still riding high off his last weeks corner about the Moor's and is keeping his Quizlet Korner in the past with some Queer History facts! Did archeologist find a pair of gay lovers buried next to each other from the 6th century? Did Shakespeare coin the term 'Drag'? When was the first porn created? Is Batman older than you think? All this and more on this week's Minority Korner!

It's halloween, which means something scurry that maybe used to bring joy to many is lurking around every corner: Clowns! Ah! And they even have a sequel to a very particular clown coming back to haunt us. The twins lament over their fears: IT! It's back! Is there a scientific reason as to why people don't like clowns? The Wonder Twins also piece together the real meaning behind a very popular 90s dance jam and surprise: it's nasty. It's the 90s! James is freshly back from seeing the new and exciting version of OKLAHOMA! This ain't yo mamma's Oklahoma, on this dark take on this usually up beat American musical. This transitions into a conversation of how to do a remount of a classic play.Nnekay has some suggestions for him to see next. The duo talk about the rise in violence against the LGBTQ community, and is the economy really booming in Trump's America? Also the shitty tactics employed by the North Carolina State Representative to get bills paid on 9/11. The main event is all about The Moors! James breaks down who they are and how they brought alllllll the magic to Europe, brining them out of the Dark Ages and into the Renaissance giving us advancements in education, hygiene, food, medicine, dining, sexuality, music, technology, agriculture, the modern city, and more! The Moore's are giving us more, and it's time we give them credit, as once again Black folks and their contributions have been washed out of history. Not today on Minority Korner! James will probably drag Europe for there sad dark living before the Moors came in and Fixed Their Lives! Get ready to have your mind blown about the Moor's!

The Wonder Twins are back- no more voicemail messages they are talking person to person! Missy Elliot may have been celebrated at the VMAs (a little too late) but Nnekay noticed a huge problem with her performance... a certain R&B princess was missing. Is James really friends with Beyonce & Jay-Z? Or was it a dream? Speaking of Jay-Z sure did step in it this week. Jay-Z Mr. Got Colin Kapernick's back on take a knee, seems to have flipped the script and aligned himself with the NFL. Is he shcukin' and jivin, or jumping into the arena? The twins discuss. James seems to have come back from Europe more able to see both sides to everything. Does Nnekay get her comedic writing from her dreams? In the main event Nnekay stops the rumor mill for Representative Illhan Omar. Nnekay breaks down her heroic story, truly representing the American Dream, and the work she's done, and what she's been up against. In a new segment called "James Asks a Question" he poses to our friendly neighborhood librarian his burning question over the last few weeks: Sex in the stacks? Fact or fiction based on the latest season of 'Dear White People'. Also please watch the Great Hack on Netflix if you haven't!

Ring, ring, ring leave another message at the Minority Korner Beep! The wonder twins are still separated by land, and sea and try to reach each other! First up James calls Nnekay and gives her all the snaps on her voicemail korner of last week. Also the VMA's happened, and James is feeling old and out of the loop. D23 Happened and James has some hot exciting takes on what else Marvel/Disney+ will be rolling out to take all of our money and eyeball time. One of the Koch brothers died and James is conflicted on how to respond. James also shares some Bossip with Nnekay around Queer Eye/Real World's Karamo Brown who stepped in it this week. Also the Glow Up did a great deep dive into why we still have unequal pay for women of color. Nnekay hops on the horn and tries to give James a call who's still over in Europe. She has to tell him all about how the Amazon is burning, and what we can do to help! All this and more on PT2 of Minority Korner Voicemail Conversations!

The Wonder Twins are stretched across the world, as James is still over in Europe, and Nnekay is holding it down in the Bay, and they're trying to get a hold of each other for this weeks episode! What ensues are two very lengthy voicemails for each other catching up on their lives and the state of the world. Nnekay gets James up to speed on her life, and black chefs who are changing the course of dining in America- YUM! James gives Nnekay a very long ramble about his misadventures in Amsterdam and Barcelona. From Circuit Festival- the largest gay circuit dance festival (why did he pay the circuit past), to navigating micro aggressions in Amsterdam (no place is perfect), Amsterdam Pride (they have actual floats), and how the Google Pixel can save your life while traveling abroad with cute pictures and internet everywhere! James has mostly been away from current events but has peaked his head in to see #boycottmulan, and the racist in chief and his usual shenanigans. Also sadly two Pulse shooting survivors have become loud, outspoken, ex-gay activist. Also he's somehow managed to squeeze in quite a few Netflix series and they're is some good stuff floating around out there! So get caught up with the Wonder Twins of Podcasting through some voicemail conversations!

It's time to celebrate our 4th year anniversary.... or is it our 5th year anniversary? We don't know how numbers work. James just had a birthday and there is controversy surrounding his age. Is he 43? Or 34? We dive into a tangent surrounding Gabrielle Union and all the projects she's up to, also Scream the TV series seems to be making a comeback with some surprise people involved. James saw Toy Story 4 is it good? Was it necessary? What is proper party etiquette? James has some thoughts! We also spoke another movie into existence this time starring Viola Davis! We also celebrate each other and our accomplishments of 4... or 5 years. We dip into the vaults of our two favorite corners through this past year. First up Nnekay covers the Gullah Geechee Nation and it's people- it's history might surprise you! James is giving you the low down on 2 Black folks you probably haven’t heard about and that should become movies asap! One was a bad ass stagecoach driver known as Stage Coach Mary, and the other an escaped pirate slave Robert Smalls. Happy Anniversary and thanks for listening over the past 4... or is it 5 years?!

We are coming in hot today as we are joined with a special guest: baby Maya is making her debut on the korner as Nnekay is literally juggling all things at once: all the snaps to our very own mother of dragons (except she ain't as mad - but she will burn it down: looking at you Linda Fairstein). But first! Should Nnekay be on Jeopardy? James puts on his Dina Lohana Momager tiara to push his baby girl to the top! We talk about Wanda Sykes new comedy special on Netflix which is a great reprieve while watching Ava DuVernay's "When They See Us" - the important new series unpacking the unjust criminalization of 5 innocent Black children for the rape of a young white women in Central Park. If you had time to watch 'Game of Thrones' you have time to watch this! With Barry Jenkins setting his sights on a new film about revolutionary dancer Alvin Ailey, Nnekay breaks down who he is, and why he's so important. James circles back to the Central Park 5, and dives into the climate of New York around this time, who Linda Fairstein is who lead the prosecution and spun this web of chaotic lives that saw these children lose decades of their lives, and how she profited. Also what you can do to turn the beat around on our criminal unjustice system!

We look at their platforms and how we can best support and find out more!
