James got that 'milk gift" and he is #blessed, he also narrowly escaped joining a cult. Thank goodness a certain body part saved him. After escaping the cult, Nnekay and James talk about Neil Degrasse Tyson and the universe, which initially freaks Nnekay out- but with Degrasse Tyson and his show, Cosmos' help the universe can be accessible and even... magical? In Nnekay's korner she tells of life and times of Tyrus Wong, the Chinese American artist who radically influenced the Disney classic, Bambi- but his journey to America and the story of his survival might be even more fascinating. Remember the "It Gets Better" Campaign? In James' korner he is seeing if there has been any change in the 7 years since it was first launched.
