Nnekay and James are a splashing around in the giggle pool reminiscing about Nnekay's wild weekend- first a guest spot on the live taping of Judge John Hodgeman at the legendary Castro Theater! Then a baby shower for what James' dubs The Bay Area's Baby! James managed to help plan the shower from across the country because that's what friends are for (Thanks Dionne). Next Up- We got a little incident of trolling going on James' facebook page, mostly surrounding Kamala Harris and her Presidential Bid... by you guessed it- Nnekay. The wonder twins break down what happened and how we got to that point. In the Korners- Nnekay talks about Black People in horror movies. Some good, some bad, some are Candyman. James then helps us all with some tips on how to survive and THRIVE this next Election Cycle of 2020. We also talk Martin Luther King Jr. and Spike Lee.

Get ready for some hot winter hot topics! First up the wonder twins react to the the live action remake of Aladdin. James has the inside scoop because he's in the "industry", and is upset, but not because of the reason you think. From there the twins easily go on a Robyn Williams tangent, which brings up the question of just why is Sally Field triggering for James? Will Nnekay entreat us with some live music? James gives his hand at ASMR, could this be a new career for him?  Which actor dominated the box office last year? The sailor gay kiss around the world has conservatives in a TWIST! Do blue characters on kids shows tend to connotate blackness? Did Marvel try to push Iceman back into the closet??? Nnekay has a spoiler free review of Aquaman- it's ridiculous. James watched John Cho's suspense thriller Searching- and it's so good, you've never seen anything like it! Then for the main event we breakdown Gabrielle Union's "Breaking In". We watched it, so you don't have to! The New year, new us continues!

Starting this new year off fresh after a little break! We give some shout outs to some other great black hosted podcasts. What is this decade called? Is it the Teens? With a quick detour into Dreamgirls. James gives us some BTS aka behind the scenes to his cameo on CBS Access' show Tell Me A Story. Nnekay breaks into some rare environmental successes not to have us rest on our laurels, but to motivate us to keep going to save our planet. James wants to celebrate and highlight the Kwanza day: Nia- by highlighting and creating goals for the new year. Using some of the things he learned from the Tony Robins Conference- James breaks down some tactics on how move forward in 2019 with goals set and ready to kick ass!
