You’ll have to forgive us, as we might be experiencing cabin fever, but this is our first pandemic ya’ll, and we’re coming to you LIVE - whatever that means in podcast world. We do a Coronavirus/Self Quarantine check-in. Fox News finally joins reality that this pandemic is real, but they’re blaming ... millennials... but wait who do they think millennials are? The dangers of generalizing a single generation. James gets on his soap box as he blames a specific group of people dating back to 2016. What will it take for us all to unite and fight this invisible enemy? We look at how COVID-19 is furthering the digital divide for youth in rural areas without internet to continue their schooling. How is this effecting LGBTQ homeless youth? An economic stimulus package was finally agreed on, and we look at what that means and when you can expect it. Guess who’s coming to the Mandalorian season 2 this October? Hint: they’re kind of connected politics. Quizlet Korner is back! To honor Madame C.J. Walker on the Netflix series inspired by her life. We’ve got tips for surviving The Rona: a daily questionnaire, actions you can do, how you can help, managing your anxiety, and how to come out of the other side of this changed as an individual and hopefully as a society. Be Well!

Disclaimer: this episode was recorded last Saturday, so 6 days ago so when it comes to talking about COVID-19... so much has changed so bare with, me in particular. It’s sort of like looking at a time capsule.

Guest co-host Michelle Peralta is here to help us navigate the beginnings of our lockdown. We talk about The Rona (the Coronavirus), James has been watching Contagion for comfort. As we all bunker down and figure out how to brave through this never before done pandemic there has been a flood of racism erupting towards Asian American folks. We talk about how to stay healthy through a holistic approach on top of washing your hands. If you live in the Bay Area have you ever wondered why you have such terrible allergies? We dive into the Hillary documentary on Hulu, and Michelle, being from the business world, provides a lot of great insights into the inherent sexism towards powerful women, and what the documentary revealed for us both. The Census is here! We talk about why it is so damn important, what groups will be included and what groups will be excluded, and 10 myths about the census. It’s so important ya’ll! Also The Crown... James watched the first season and Michelle watched some.. We have thoughts.

She's BACK! The Queen of Minority Korner herself: Nenkay FitzClarke is back just to take in James' new muscular bod.  Have you ever asked someone, "how was the funeral?" If you have, chances are: you're Black! We explore how we view age today vs back in the 80s looking at Grace & Frankie, vs The Golden Girls. With Nnekay here we can finally dive fully into Hulu's High Fidelity starring the amazing Zoe Kravitz. With the Democratic Primaries potentially drawing a close we need to have a talk with white liberals: ya'll doing too much! James & Nnekay have a PSA for this group: stop blaming Black people for Sanders and Warren not winning in the primary - scapegoating is not the key. It's time for Coronavirus Karaoke, as Nnekay takes us through songs we can sing while we wash our hands for 20 seconds to stay healthy and not get bored while doing it. Did you know Bisexual men exist? They do and they have their own hashtag to prove it! We unpack this wave of a hashtag inpsired by Netflix's Love is Blind, which thankfully Nnekay is here to walk us through this show. Biphobia is real especially for Black men, but so are negative views about Black women. We discuss! A Candidate is not a savior, we all have a role to play as we gear up for the 2020 election! All hands on deck!

Two guest co-hosts this week as we continue where we left off from last week, still trying to figure out what Rihanna said. Glory kicks it off and gets real personal, taking a break from giving horoscopes, she leads us through a conversation about hair, being Afro-Latina and why things like the Crown Act are necessary. We kick it back over to Kyle who poses the question of: should Obama come back and wrangle the Democratic party? Are we a doomed mess headed for a brokered convention? James made Glory watch Lark Voorhies Dr. Oz special which brings up a lot of questions about mental illness and the real reason she wasn't asked to come back to the Saved By the Bell Reunion. Was it raceism or her issues with mental illness? So much has happened with the Democratic Primary in the past two weeks, and what to do if you find your candidates is out of the running and your heartbroken?
