"Awww sookie sookie," now we kick things off with an impromptu Quizlet Korner! Who made that phrase a house hold catch phrase in the 90's (and now looking back it is probably appropriated from Japan. James has a confession to make to Nnekay and you the audience... he watched 'Big Little Lies', but why does he feel so guilty about it? Possibly because it's just a bunch of rich white ladies, depressed, and staring into the ocean. Well we came here for Zoe Kravitz, and stayed for Nicole Kidman who turned it out! 'Masters of None' has reached perfection this season, and why are you still not watching 'Dear White People' yet? Nnekay delivers in an expose about the Tuskegee Study (not to be confused with Tuskegee Airmen of WWII) which was a true fucked up American Horror Story in it's treatment of Black men. Inspired by a recent trip, and conversion to the Yankee's, James takes a peak behind the jockstrap of Major League American Sports: a billion dollar industry. Which sports make what? How much do professional male athletes make compared to females? Why don't folks watch the WNBA? How much do cheerleaders make? What's the racial breakdown? LGBT Athletes? Does testosterone levels increase when your team wins? Why do we say "we" won, or "they" lost? Plus we take a look at the PWR BTTM controversy, and as we say: you gotta side eye your heroes. Also... did you see Drake get upstaged at his cousins prom?
