We got a jam packed episode for ya'lls! James hosted a Bar Mitzvah, will the kids think he's cool? What's up with our girl, Tessa Thompson... she's up to something cool movie wise. Nnekay covers the Gullah Geechee Nation and it's people- it's history might surprise you! James covers voter fraud and how it's not a conspiracy theory, but a straight up conspiracy. We also cover Mark Cherry, Zoe Kravitz... also what the hell is going on with Facebook TV.

Coming hot from a jam packed weekend in Fire Island James has notes on... the Hunger Game movies? The duo talk about these movies, also some how Omarosa manages to squeeze herself back into the fray with their conversation as well. Nnekay takes us back with the story of the Dominican Republic's baseball team Dragones de Ciudad Trujillo- created by 1937 dictator Rafael Trujillo. A team while created in a time of fascism still managed to treat black baseball players better than the United States. James investigates the difference between various terms that we might have misused in past episodes: Pansexual, Bisexual, and Sexually Fluid. We're here to grow just like everyone else!

Reeling from the outrage about Kaepernick's feature in Nike's new campaign, the duo discusses... is Nike doing good or is it more complicated than that?! Also they are dissecting Whitney Houston's documentary, the tragedy that she went through and why we gotta give her more respect. The main korner for the show is Anita Hill, the precursor to the #metoo movement, James breaks down everything we might not know or have forgotten about her story and everything she went through during the confirmation of Clarence Thomas. Also- who's a better actor Whitney Houston or Halle Berry?

Feeling inspired by Mama Mia: Here We Go Again, James tries out some new vocal impressions to the joy...? Chagrin... of Nnekay. Next up, the duo deconstruct HBO's Insecure, the ups and down of all three seasons and where they think they the show should head towards. In Nnekay's Korner- she tackles the national crisis of Black Maternal Mortality rates. What is happening to theses women and their babies! It's incredibly important information for all of us and hopefully highlight some of the women taking action to help fix it. We round out the episode with James breaking down Hoteps, what they are and how they are detrimental. ALSO we got a BIG BIG MK Surprise!!!
