The Wonder Twins are back in the saddle and ready to break down some more titillating bossip! First They're breaking down James' upcoming show in SF for Pride- Manity Kane (come on thru it will be at Oasis SF) where James will be choreographing a Sailor Moon themed dance to Damaged by Danity Kane! Which brings us to some Dawn and Aubrey O'day Related DRAMA!! Next up they talk about the Royal Weddingggggg and how black excellence CAME THRUUUU. In Nnekay's Korner to celebrate Stacey Abram's historic run for governor of Georgia, Nnekay breaks down the forgotten pioneer Shirley Chisholm- who racked up a bunch of first including the first woman to run for president in the democratic party. In James' korner he gets a question from Max Fun Member, Goldilocks about the Flint, Michigan Water Crisis... which, yea is still going down. He covers how this happened and what we can do about it. You wouldn't believe who made a guest appearance in Scandal in the second season? Hint- It's apart of our Maximum Fun family.

Hear ye, hear ye! The court of the Honorable Judge John Hodgman will be on a short summer recess and return with new episodes starting Wednesday, September 10! In the meantime, check out Judge Hodgman's tourdates beginning September 5 and if you're in the New England area... Listen to this episode to learn how to meet Judge Hodgman, the Bananaman and Guest Bailiff Monte in the flesh!

Steffen brings the case against his dad, Brian. Steffen enjoys spending time with his family, but says too much of their "together" time is based around pool parties. Steffen doesn't care for swimming or laying out, and wants the family to do more indoor activities together. Brian says pool time is a great way for the family to bond.

Who's right? Who's wrong? Only one man can decide.

Big thanks again to Joel Mann and community radio station WERU-FM in Blue Hill, Maine for hosting the Judge this summer!
