Did you know that June is African American Music Appreciation Month?! Well now you do! The Wonder Twins try with all their might to talk about this, but Jimmy Carter just keeps showing up to steal the show! James needs tips on how to leave a date early and Nnekay has dubbed herself the Date Referee giving tips and calling it when the gig is up! Should James trust a "walk up dentist?" Nnekay says no and tells a tale of caution. In James' Korner he addresses the Supreme Court ruling in favor for Jack Phillips- who refused to bake a wedding cake for a gay couple. What does this mean for the future, what has happened in the past, and how we can stay woke to discrimination with love and respect. Inspired by the recent Oakland, Ca events involving BBQ Becky and Jogger Joe, Nnekay talks gentrification- what and what not to do.
