It is our 2nd year anniversary and boy do we have some presents for you! First up is it hot, or is it just these hot, hot, HAWT Topics! So much to discuss that we haven't had a change to! James Comey- let's hold up before we give this man that ruined the election a parade. The Cosby Ms. Trial- Oye Vey what is up with jury's AND the Philando Castile trial??? Meanwhile another trigger happy cop shot and killed a pregnant Black woman. Elizabeth Banks demonstrates the case for more white feminism, along with Sofia Coppola's latest film that forgets Slavery was a thing back in the confederacy. Beyonce had twins! Phew! Over in the Korner's Nnekay pricks up her feud with JuneTeenth but flips and reverses it, with this way you can truly reclaim this holiday, and some land, as we Black folks still await our 40 acres and a mule. James tackles the controversy of a new Pride flag that was revealed and gives you the history of the flag, along with his two cents. I mean you know him, he's going to give you at least 5 cents.

Nnekay has returned home from summer camp aka MaxFun Con, and James being the Dinah Lohan mother that he is, couldn't be happier to have his baby gurl back home.  Nnekay returns home with tales of her adventure of twirling, teaching folks how to side eye through being research warriors, and found out what a Bo Jangle's is. The Wonder Twins of Podcasting unpack the EPIC Black Panther Trailer, and combat the criticism by some (racists) that it's too "militant". Also are the rumors true started in this very episode about Angela Davis being in the Black Panthers movie? Find out! Continuing our celebration of Pride, and in honor of remembering the Pulse Massacre and their victims, James gives props to 10 LatinX LGBT folk who slay all day, everyday! Move over Ms. Frizzle, because Ms. Sizzle (Nnekay) has gotten hold of the magic school bus and she is taking us on a world wind tower visiting some Feminist Monuments! Also James let's Katy Perry have it! Swish swish- bish!

There is a meeting in the ladies room, and by ladies room we mean the Bay Area! That's right James is back in the SF Bay Area and our wonder twins are REUNITED!!!! James has come back to the booming trend of La Croix and needs some explanation from Nnekay. We also get to hear about James' flight which involves espionage, implicit bias, dubious toys, and some deep soul searching. We also get into The whole Kathy Griffin vs. Trump controversy. Too good? Too Far? Or Who Cares?! In Nnekay's Korner, she covers the untold story of the Tulsa Race Riot or how she likes to calls it "The Greenwood Massacre" the 1921 historic event which was covered up for decades. James uses his Korner to cover the facts, origin, history, and importance of the AIDS Quilt. Making sure that its purpose, art, and beauty get recognized for years to come and respected by those who may not have experienced it. We also have another Minority Korner Movie Review!!! This time we cover the insanity that is CATWOMAN. A year before Batman Begins came out we had Halle Berry strutting her stuff in the most ridiculous leather outfit ever to grace a superhero. Was this a knockoff of a superhero movie? Did Sharon Stone really have a stone face? Was Halle Berry robbed of an oscar?! All this an more in this week's episode!

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. James uncovers some currents facts about LGBT youth, analyses some recent articles that say that the campaign didn't work, and ultimately gives some tips on how to work through those moments in life when things seem bleak. We also have an Ask Minority Korner Anything!!!! This time from Eboni S. and relationships and vegetarians. We also cover such topics as: the wigs of scandal and just fake hairs in general, recommendation for Hasan Minhaj Netflix special Homecoming King and the book This Is What A Librarian Looks Like, which features one of your favorite Wonder Twins of Podcasting.
