We start this episode off with a round up of all things 2018. Can you even believe it?!?!? Black Panther and Crazy Rich Asians came out, the Olympics happened- this year has been a whirlwind! We got the wind knocked out of in 2017 and we persevered in 2018. We kicked our asses into gear and plan to continued to so in 2019. Nnekay and James share their hopes and dreams for the next year. With a little detour into why mud baths are annoying and James' trip to the Van Jones' Show. In the Korners- we have our two favorite from the past year: Nnekay's korner is from Episode 140 and is all about the epidemic plaguing our country: Black Maternal Mortality. James' Korner is from Episode 124 and is about Black Queens (four specifically)... remember Queen Candice!? Also a lot of questionable pronunciations.
We have united in person for Kwanzaa, and James' Kwanzaa hormones are going! So, it's time to dust out our annual Kwanzaa special, because whether you're a new or longtime listener you may have forgotten how to celebrate! Plus we jump in between the segments to add in some new insights, retrospectives, tangents, and giggles. We'll be there to guide you through our Kwanzaa spectacular! But before we get into the gist of it James has a recommendation of a Black, Queer, Gospel, broadway musical "Choir Boy". The wonder twins also rehash the history of British pop group Cleopatra who were comin' atcha. So first how well do you know Kwanzaa? We'll take a quiz sponsored by PBS. Then we jump back into it and discuss Mowgli on Netflix, which Disney's live action Jungle Book she ain't, and James has impressions to show the difference. We also give tips on how to celebrate Kwanzaa if you're far away from your family. So then we jump back into the special and James talks about it's history, importance, meanings, and walks you through the days, and then Nnekay will walk you through how you can celebrate this beautiful holiday celebrating African American Awesomeness.

Don't know remember Cleopatra:
James is driving the ship this week, while Nnekay takes to being in that passenger side with ease! We got one korner, but man is it a korner! Back from the OutRight International Out Summit on global activism- James is MOTIVATED to talk about LBGTQ issue that are happening all over this beautiful glob we got. More specifically, he's going to focus on India's Article 377 and the the ripple effect of change it has had on many other countries. Lets decolonize and change legislation to be less homophobia and to provide liberty for truly all! We also get into chats about Kevin Hart's fuck up... yet again. How Ryan Murphy is effecting change, Why some music videos really irked us... and why you gotta have us pay Vulture? You a BLOG!
