The Wonder Twins are back in action! James has just come off the plane from his magical, ridiculous, and confidential trip to Vegas! Some of the things he CAN talk about are: his run in with a Korner Kid, the Divas review, and Britney Spears. Also is Las Vegas LGBTQ friendly? In Nnekay's Korner she combs through The Hollywood Reporter to get you the hot scoop on TV shows in development staring or created by People of Color! Lots of great things coming from Jordan Peele, Gina Rodriguez, and more! James is tackling the Whedonverse and it's creator Joss Whedon. Recently his wife has claimed that his feminism might not be as truthful as he states! James tackles several different points that chip away at his self proclaimed "woke bae-ness". Never fear though, James gives advice to those who still love his work, and the duo talks about how to love the art work of someone you can't help but side eye.

Nnekay and James are back giggling in the korners. Trying to figure out how to set the record straight? No. Setting the record right? No. Setting the record on the appropriate course. Yes. They are here to discuss as what Marvin Gaye and James say, "What is going on?" They discuss horrible incident that happened in Las Vegas, what we can do about it, and how this keeps happening to America by Americans. The semantics of the media... who is called a lone wolf, a thug, a terrorist? In Nnekay's Korner, she is talking about two stories about two good things moving in the right direction, Harvard students protesting Betsy DeVos, and how Black Lives Matters cannot be sued. To round out her korner, Nnekay talks about way that we can take care of ourselves when the world looks bleak. James taking a trip to Latin America for Latinx History month, which is from September 15th- October 15th. In his korner he is taking a page from Anderson Cooper's book and doing and expose on what is going on in Venezuela. How Nicolas Maduro, the president of Venezuela is changing the country since Hugo Chavez, and has just been declared (by the US) a dictatorship. How are the people of Venezuela are rebelling and creating their own narrative. This is your last change to enter our 100 Minority Korner review sweepstakes! We're taking a little bit of a break (two weeks) and will be back with our 100th episode!!!! Enjoy the week and thanks for listening!!!!!!
