It's our tribute to Larry Bird episode! Just kidding! But hold on to your butts as we dish on random subjects from 'Crazy Ex Girlfriend' to the debate around the new out Star Trek character. Should you be watching 'Stranger Things'? YES! Nnekay takes sides on the feud that most didn't even know existed between Charlize Theron and one of the Sister Sister... sisters. James jumps into the perplexing nature of the RNC especially when it comes to the gays there both in and out of the Log Cabin closet. And what's Third Eye Blind doing there? In a more positive corner Nnekay is shinning some light on a community doing some good for others in Berkeley, as it lives up to it's name 'The City of Refuge'. Are Ghostbuster toys selling? Are Muslims being targeted for discrimination on planes?  Are Latinos para Trump? Does that even make any sense? Find out in this weeks Quizlet Korner.

We are not reporting from the RNC- because that would be dangerous for us. We are still internationally recording, and James has a bird's eye view of all the crazy Republican politics, safely from Europe. Let's talk about the terrifying circus that is the Republican National Convention.  Nnekay speaks about a hashtag near and dear to her heart #LoudBlackWomen, and it's celebration, and empowerment of Black women to be themselves. James is going to myth bust some gender and race stereotypes, and we need to have a very important conversation about white on white crime. This week's Quizlet Korner might actually be legit. Did Stevie Wonder go crazy at a concert? Is Grand Theft Auto taking place at a Pride Parade? Are Homosexuals lacing fireworks with chemtrails to turn everyone gay?! Find out!

James is STILL across the whole planet from Nnekay and living it up in Amsterdam with Bae. He met the parents and may or may not have bonded over the EuroCup and some Canal Tours. Meanwhile back stateside, Nnekay has a lumpy uterus and tells a tale on why self advocating is important. James share his method to change the police system for the better, in the Police Reform Korner. Nnekay takes us to the Ancient Africa Korner to share some stories about why learning about african ancient civilizations are important. Will James stump Nnekay in Quizlet Korner this week? One tidbit covered involves a very interesting development with the Black Panthers! So stop, look, and listen because Minority Korner is hot and fresh this week ready for your ear holes!

We're livin it up like Patti LaBelle, or at least trying to as Nnekay catches James up on two recent shootings of unarmed Black Men while James in Amsterdam, Nnekay is holding it down in the Bay Area. We find out how Nnekay spent Straight pride. We're giving some more side eye at Whoopi Goldberg. Nnekay educates us on 17 Black Olympians who competed in the 1936 Olympics other than Jesse Owens (who knew)? And James is laying it down on Feminism, so listen up straight dudes and gays, as it's time to unpack this patriarchal, misogynistic bullshit! Plus a Quizlit Korner which will let you know why you do NOT fuck with John Lewis!

Happy Pride ya'll! James is confronted with a lot of ugly truths in this episode as Nnekay is dropping earth shattering truth bombs. Is Nnekay going to be an upcoming Actress? We dive into Pride and celebrate and discuss brilliant dream boat Jesse Williams' acceptance speech. James is going to give you a run down of the state of guns in Amurrica, historical shooting massacres, how we look in comparison to other countries, and why guns are so tough to beat in this country. Nnekay is giving us a comic book news roundup of some new series that are uplifting marginalized groups... and some that are not... and will get Nnekay's harsh side eye!
