It's time to celebrate our 4th year anniversary.... or is it our 5th year anniversary? We don't know how numbers work. James just had a birthday and there is controversy surrounding his age. Is he 43? Or 34? We dive into a tangent surrounding Gabrielle Union and all the projects she's up to, also Scream the TV series seems to be making a comeback with some surprise people involved. James saw Toy Story 4 is it good? Was it necessary? What is proper party etiquette? James has some thoughts! We also spoke another movie into existence this time starring Viola Davis! We also celebrate each other and our accomplishments of 4... or 5 years. We dip into the vaults of our two favorite corners through this past year. First up Nnekay covers the Gullah Geechee Nation and it's people- it's history might surprise you! James is giving you the low down on 2 Black folks you probably haven’t heard about and that should become movies asap! One was a bad ass stagecoach driver known as Stage Coach Mary, and the other an escaped pirate slave Robert Smalls. Happy Anniversary and thanks for listening over the past 4... or is it 5 years?!

We are coming in hot today as we are joined with a special guest: baby Maya is making her debut on the korner as Nnekay is literally juggling all things at once: all the snaps to our very own mother of dragons (except she ain't as mad - but she will burn it down: looking at you Linda Fairstein). But first! Should Nnekay be on Jeopardy? James puts on his Dina Lohana Momager tiara to push his baby girl to the top! We talk about Wanda Sykes new comedy special on Netflix which is a great reprieve while watching Ava DuVernay's "When They See Us" - the important new series unpacking the unjust criminalization of 5 innocent Black children for the rape of a young white women in Central Park. If you had time to watch 'Game of Thrones' you have time to watch this! With Barry Jenkins setting his sights on a new film about revolutionary dancer Alvin Ailey, Nnekay breaks down who he is, and why he's so important. James circles back to the Central Park 5, and dives into the climate of New York around this time, who Linda Fairstein is who lead the prosecution and spun this web of chaotic lives that saw these children lose decades of their lives, and how she profited. Also what you can do to turn the beat around on our criminal unjustice system!
