Fires, earthquakes, and droughts- California is out of control! Never forget the major earthquake of 2015, and we survived! Are Renaissance fairs for Black people? Alfre Woodard in all her amazingness is joining the Marvel Universe, but Nnekay is not happy with her characters name.  James is also making a list and checking it twice (a make out list).  Nnekay watched the Backstreet Boys documentary. Nnekay investigates Black Queens and gives them praise, and is about to start a major feud and beef with Queen herself Aretha Franklin. James dives into 'Straight Out of Compton' looking at the true true story of this true story, and a behind the scenes look at the casting of women for the movie. What's Campaign Zero? We're here to tell you, and it's awesome! Plus the Industrial Prison Complex is getting in the hot seat for the Quizlet Corner, and you'll never guess which athlete superstar is being put in the corner, because he sucks as a human being.

Just like Janet Jackson said when her new track hit #1: Bitches need to stay woke! We have pop artist Saturn in the studio, and things are gonna get shady. James has a bug a boo.  Did you hear about the one about the Catholic priest, a bagel, and an ear? Target is going gender neutral with it's toys and bedding, and it's a sign of the Apocolaypse because people are FREAKING OUT! Good trolls! How to fuck up your kid the least. CA ain't got no love for grand juries, and which candidates are actually listening to #blacklivesmatter? John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt opened up a Slavery museum, how many slavery museums exist in the country? Also little Matilda is throwing some shade towards director Ronald Emmerich, Madonna has lost her mind, and Donald Trump is... still Donald Trump.  All this and more on our big ten episode!

Nnekay literally just got off a plane from the Philippines and is loosing her mind- she was in the future! Nnekay is also running for office and is very behind in the polls. It's Bernie Sanders vs. #Black Lives Matter, but Sanders has an ace up his sleeve to unite movements. James lost his groove, but Nnekay doesn't believe him. It's Black Women's Equal Pay Day so BBHMM! We have our very first special guest Pearl Marill from So You Think You Can Lap Dance, and Crunch Pop (or as we know here from: College!). Nnekay and Pearl battle it out in this weeks quizlet corner about Mariah Carey.  James takes a look at some Black Queer writers you should know, specifically Charles M. Blow writer of 'Fire Shut Up in My Bones', and he reveals something nobody knew happened to his cousin. And we're still debating if we should go on the 'Amazing Race'.

Get your JNCO's on cause we're going back in time! But first some short term Nostalgia: Nnekay went to L.A. and she saw some "celebrities". Remember LFO? We kind of do.  Should Nnekay and James go on the Amazing Race? We're getting outrageous with JEM & The Holograms. Jem is the ultimate HBIC. Also, this is the true story how the real world has become a drunken frat house. Also we dive into music videos! Where did they go? Looking back were pop teen princesses actually just strippers with voices? This is actually going to be a giant episode about MTV which apparently raised us both.
