This week Nnekay and James are fighting back against the awful memo that was passed around to major agencies in our government about the definition of gender. Before we get to the main event, James and Nnekay wonder... is Halloween still fun? Speaking of Halloween, Megyn Kelly has some questions about costumes as well, specifically Blackface. Let's just say she's WRONG in her opinions. Luke Cage and Iron Fist are getting cancelled, which makes James wonder if Disney has something up it's sleeves- James also elaborates on his newest obsession: DocuDramas! James kicks of the first korner by explaining what this memo is all about, and how it can impact the lives of Transgender and Gender Non Conforming people. James also gives tips on how we can fight back against this hateful ass memo and what we can uplift and support each other. Nnekay takes the baton by giving more tips on self preservation for POC transgender and gender non conforming people. She also gives a trusty dusty list of books that celebrate and lift up the voices of those apart of the community. Also did James manage to get yelled at by George Takei? I think you know the answer.

We start this episode off by talking about our legends and their Twitter personas. Cher = good, while Bette Midler... surprisingly NOT. Taylor Swift is coming up roses, while Kanye shows us his ass and his simple iPhone code. We got another false accusation from a white woman blaming a NINE year old boy of sexual assault... WHAT?! Wahooooo casting news for Birds of Prey. James breaks down two important documentaries you should check out: Dirty Money and Active Measures- Trump is just the puppet and Putin is a dangerous form KGB mastermind who must be stopped. For the Main event we got a Minority Korner Movie Review about Netflix RomCom (?) Nappily Ever After starring the fabulous Sanaa Lathan ... was it good? You'll just have to listen to find out. We also have a quickie review of The Hate U Give. 

See James perform at the Broadway Comedy Club, Sat Oct 27th @6pm!

Coming in strong with the duo discuss what they recently viewed! Nnekays talks about seeing Spike Lee's Blackklansman  move, and James was inspired by Notorious RBG. James also had an interesting experience with a woman in Starbucks... should we yearn for the better days of the 1950s? Nah. What the hell is Melania wearing and what historical implications does it have. Hint: it's not good. Nnekay talks about all the new and exciting Asian and Asian-American actors on Fall TV Premiers. James wants us to Queer the Vote, but highlighting some LGBTQ politicians running this coming November!

 Insecure just ended it's season and the duo can barely believe it. Give that show more episodes, dammit! James watched the HBO documentary on Jane Fonda and was reminded why he loved her so much. Such an amazing life! Nnekay could relate since she watched the recent Quincy Jones Documentary. It's wonderful to honor our heroes while they are alive. Nnekay found a new video game called Supreme Courtship... about dating justices... which is as problematic as you would think it is. In the Korners- James is Getting us pumped for this November with ALL the facts on why it is truly important and necessary to make sure we all get out there and VOTE. He breaks down the Michael Moore Film 11/9 and how this could be the possible end to our democracy. Nnekay has a another great book list for you- this time on how to teach your children about consent and help curb toxic masculinity. Let's get to it!!!
