First They're breaking down James' upcoming show in SF for Pride- Manity Kane (come on thru it will be at Oasis SF) where James will be choreographing a Sailor Moon themed dance to Damaged  by Danity Kane!

In Nnekay's Korner to celebrate Stacey Abram's historic run for governor of Georgia, Nnekay breaks down the forgotten pioneer Shirley Chisholm- who racked up a bunch of first including the first woman to run for president in the democratic party. In James' korner he gets a question from Max Fun Member, Goldilocks about the Flint, Michigan Water Crisis... which, yea is still going down. He covers how this happened and what we can do about it.

The wonder twins are off on separate assignments. Nnekay is holding it down with her tidbits, and has some golden nuggets of wisdom for your around Twitter etiquette. Stop sharing ego beasts content that don't deserve our res hares! Also why is your brain wired for negative bias? Nnekay's got your answer! Next we visit Evan Forde Barden and Patrick Cartelli of The Repeater Podcast, who host a monthly talk show about people’s favorite songs. We talk about the music video for 'Love Will Never Do (Without You)', James’ early love of dance, and Nipplegate 2004 and how racism and sexism played into that debacle. Also James dishes out on all the hot Janet gossip! Plus, Evan discusses the Q&A he recently attended with Carly Rae Jepsen and gives some insight into his “obsession” with CRJ, that's right she's an acronym now, and how to handle hecklers! Get ready for this picnic for your brain!
