It's time for James to do the intro duties- what is going on with Katy Perry and dem nuns? Plus our food! What are we eating, what are food deserts, and how food in America is so cultural and political. Remember to vote!!! We are so fortunate to have Luna Malbroux as a guest on today's show! Luna sits down with Nnekay to discuss her play How To Be A White Man on the eve of opening night! The two discuss: what it's like to develop a play, the comedy scene in San Francisco, growing up in the rural south, dual consciousness, her work traveling across the country with #Mappingprivilege, and much much more. Luna is truly an inspiration so please do yourself a favor and check out her show!

Is Nasty Nubbin a good nick name? Couple of discoveries at the start of the show: James' beat boxing skills, and Nnekay has bars! Are the wonder twins good at these respective skills? Jury is out. Next up- Miranda is running for New York Governor?! That's right Cynthia Nixon best known as Miranda from Sex In The City is running for Governor of New York. Let's unpack it! Nnekay gives a boots on the grown account of the National School Walkout at her job. James and Nnekay are both in awe and look forward to the March For Our Lives coming up. In James' korner- he is so excited to share the information he learned from Brene Brown's book Daring Greatly-  which covers tactics on overcoming shame through debunking myths on being vulnerable and a few takeaways to live your life fully. In Nnekay's korner- she addresses the package bombs that have been terrorizing Texas Capital, Austin. Why they haven't been in the news media, who they are effecting, how the victims and suspect have been portrayed, and what it means to actually be a domestic terrorist. Don't forget to tune in to Maximum Fun Shows during April 2nd when MaxFunDrive kicks off!!

Let's jump right in and get to it! First- we start with a little recap break down of The Oscars. Who won, who presented, who should have won, and what confused us. Nnekay actually was busy taking in a little theater while the Oscars was airing, Book of Mormon and both Nnekay and James share their thoughts (and some side eyes) on the 2012 musical. In the Korners, Nnekay covers 8 Indigenous Authors and their text that you should check out! James' breaks down 10 Black LGBTQ movies to help you with the Moonlight withdrawals. Rounding out the episode we GUSH over he greatness of the How to Get Away with Murder/ Scandal. Kerry Washington and Viola Davis were powerhouses, the newly shared universe, and who might be crossing from show to the other. Happy Friday!

It's Friday and we are hot, fresh, sexy, and cool with this episode, bbs! James bring to discussion the new SciFi Natalie Portman thriller, Annihilation directed by Alex Garland (of Ex Machina fame)... are we sensing a little...Whitewashing?! Double N and Lil J discuss the lack of representation for Asian American woman in film, drafts of manuscripts, Tessa and Gina, and James' love for Natalie Portman. Moving forward to the Korners- James continues the Hollywood trend by discussing the movie, Detroit directed by Kathryn Bigelow, is it FUBU aka For Us By Us? They chat about the 1960s riots- how many there actually were. It will surprise you. In Nnekay's Korner- she wants to give an update on the power outage in Puerto Rico caused by Hurricane Maria on September 20th. How many people are still out power, who is in charge of fixing the crisis, and what can we do about it.
