Summer Skool is in session! But not Jeff Sessions- fuck that guy! The Wonder Twins of Podcasting are still talking about the 4th of July, and try to come up with the lyrics of Stars and Stripes for Ever. Get ready to learn about the game that is changing dominoes forever: Hollywood Dominos! And what happened when James had a showdown with his Aunties at 4th of July: a star was born! .. again. Nnekay weighs in about the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling. And it's Nnekay vs. James in the debate about Bidet's... we've been waiting for this! It is the Minority Korner Summer Skool Spectacular Session Quizlet! We hope Nnekay studied: What city is home to the largest Book Fair in the U.S.?  Hint it's a place you might want to book for your summer travels- it's a hot place to be LGBT! Are frosted tips making a comeback? Is the gay leather scene dead? Who prefers their mens hairy or hairless, Ladies, or Gays? Iggy Azealia & Azealia Banks united together?  Did Britney bring peace to the Middle East? Is there a bias against young Black girls? Did Maxine Waters takes down HUD? Is Florida still sadly "standing their ground"? Find out! And then Nnekay walks us through Medicare, how it applies to health care debate, how it relates to race and gender, and what we can do to protect it. Also Jay-Z's 4:44! It's time to get crazy!

The Wonder Twins of Podcast break down the late nineties teen group Cleopatra. James has had a an epiphany that he's a Dinah Lohan, just supporting and boosting (and sharing) the talent and success. Nnekay has a glamour tryst in gold country, and discovers a little thing called pretty privilege as introduced by Janet Mock. Get ready to clutch your pearls because James might not be familiar with a Super Star from RuPaul's Drag Race. In Nnekay's Korner, she covers how Climate Change and Race are connected through a study that was conducted by researchers from UC Berkeley and Princeton. As the temperature rises, so does the divide the wealth. In James' Korner, he is here to give an audio pamphlet for straight guys navigating gay bars. He knows they're coming, might as well give them some guidelines so everyone can have a fun time and let gay bars remain a space space for who they were created for.
