James was boy on a train last week but not as crazy, or as exciting. We've both watched '13th' Ava DuVernay's new documentary about Mass Incarceration, and how slavery is alive and well in our American society. It is a must watch for all Americans! Does Beyonce deserve a Nobel Prize? Bob Dylan got one.. What about the Lohans? Let's give props to some of the ladies throughout history who've managed to break into this Nobel Boys Club. James breaks down all the controversy around the film 'Birth of A Nation', not the racist one from 1915, the 2016 one that's potentially more problematic in it's treatment with women. Oh and there's the director/writer/producer/lead actors history with rape. Once again we need to have a conversation about how we treat and talk about women. History Korner is back from the grave and it looks like Thomas Edison is at it again, stealing ideas, but this time from a Black man. Quizlet Korner is going to get NASTAY for you as we focus on the the third and final debate.  Also, James explains why we took the week of last week, sharing a tragic story, that sheds light on a first hand encounter of the police. In light of that this episode is dedicated to James' roommate Noah Witke, a beautiful, compassionate, loving, talented individual... may he rest in peace.
