James is BACK in the BAY! But sadly the duo aren't in the same room, yet- but that's coming! James had his West Coast debut as a comedian at a cat themed stand up show. The wonder twins talk art history and the majesty of Beyonce and Jay-Z aka The Carters and their new album and the visual richness of the video for Apeshit. Nnekay went to Janelle Monae and has lost all of her damn edges due to the sheer amazingness black female empowerment. The night before James went to Kathy Griffin at the same venue!!! He talks abut her fight against the Trump Administration. In the Korners, Nnekay talks about Romans 13 the bible verse that has been use to give legitimacy to many horrific events in world history- including most recently Jeff Sessions' use of it to plead the case for separating undocumented families. James talks about California's dirty past of trying but (thankfully) failing to ban black people from living in the state.

It's Friday and we are hot, fresh, sexy, and cool with this episode, bbs! James bring to discussion the new SciFi Natalie Portman thriller, Annihilation directed by Alex Garland (of Ex Machina fame)... are we sensing a little...Whitewashing?! Double N and Lil J discuss the lack of representation for Asian American woman in film, drafts of manuscripts, Tessa and Gina, and James' love for Natalie Portman. Moving forward to the Korners- James continues the Hollywood trend by discussing the movie, Detroit directed by Kathryn Bigelow, is it FUBU aka For Us By Us? They chat about the 1960s riots- how many there actually were. It will surprise you. In Nnekay's Korner- she wants to give an update on the power outage in Puerto Rico caused by Hurricane Maria on September 20th. How many people are still out power, who is in charge of fixing the crisis, and what can we do about it.
