Minority Korner 56: Werk 2 Da Beat: Election Action Items, Protest Songs, Safety Pins, Moonlight, Marvel

Minority Korner

This week Nnekay and James are still trying to process the election... they're letting Pierce Brosnan guide the way. They deconstruct the Safety Pin Movement, and get into the lack of diversity still plaguing the movie industry. One movie making a big difference is Moonlight... which James HIGHLY recommends... he also recommends the Man Buffet that is New York City... and thus a new Nnekay penned song is born. In the Korners, James addresses the Election Action Items that we can do to make sure to prevent another event like this from happening again, inspired by Michael Moore's two day To Do List. Nnekay wants everyone to get pumped and ready for work by listening to protest songs that cross not only time periods, but also music genre. In the Quizlet Korner, We talk about Celebrity Twitter Election Reactions... Does Mariah know J.Lo, yet? We also have another hot and fresh ASkMK Anything segment! Enjoy!

One Bad Mother Episode 180: You Win Some, You Lose Some, Plus Marriage Family Therapist Beth Hossfeld

One Bad Mother
Beth Hossfeld

Biz and Theresa wonder if everyone deserves a trophy or if the cut-and-dry world of "1st, 2nd and 3rd Place" make us stronger. Maybe just the act of having to explain winning and losing to our kids makes us strong enough. Plus, Biz takes it offline, Theresa runs away to the woods, and we get some help from Theresa’s mom, Marriage Family Therapist Beth Hossfeld, on how to go on parenting when we're scared or dealing with crisis.

Adam Ruins Everything Episode 13 - Trophy Hunting with Rosie Cooney

Rosie Cooney

On this week's podcast, Adam and guest Rosie Cooney discuss how trophy hunting can actually preserve wild species. It sounds insane and paradoxical, but countries that actually manage trophy hunting well can save species like rhinos from extinction. Rosie, who appeared on Adam Ruins Animals, is chair of the IUCN's Commission on Environmental, Economic and Social Policy (CEESP)/Species Survival Commission (SSC) Sustainable Use and Livelihoods Specialist Group. On the podcast, she and Adam discuss how trophy hunting can benefit conservation efforts, where it works and where it has failed, and whether there's hope for wild species.
