Nnekay literally just got off a plane from the Philippines and is loosing her mind- she was in the future! Nnekay is also running for office and is very behind in the polls. It's Bernie Sanders vs. #Black Lives Matter, but Sanders has an ace up his sleeve to unite movements. James lost his groove, but Nnekay doesn't believe him. It's Black Women's Equal Pay Day so BBHMM! We have our very first special guest Pearl Marill from So You Think You Can Lap Dance, and Crunch Pop (or as we know here from: College!). Nnekay and Pearl battle it out in this weeks quizlet corner about Mariah Carey.  James takes a look at some Black Queer writers you should know, specifically Charles M. Blow writer of 'Fire Shut Up in My Bones', and he reveals something nobody knew happened to his cousin. And we're still debating if we should go on the 'Amazing Race'.
