Nnekay is still here, she's still in New York! James is showing her the sights! World Trade Center Monument, The High Line, The Stonewall Inn, a... bone... mall? Also James is excited to share his mutant power, which might not get him accepted into Professor X's institute. Did you know Madonna dated Tupac? The wonder twins discuss. Did you know that DeMario Jackson (from Bachelor in Paradise) asked Britney Spears out? James got to experience the fabulous Phylicia Rashad... sleep for most of the play? In James's Korner, we're discussing a tough topic (Trigger Warning). With the recent suicide of Chester Bennington of Linkin Park, James dives into one of the causes he was incredibly vocal about: Child Molestation. James breaks down some of the statistics from the website Darkness to Light, to squash a lot of the misconceptions that are spread. Also, James shares some tactics on how to protect those children that surround us. Next up! We try something new with a Super Soul Sunday. With all the intense conversations and whirlwind recording, we take a page from Oprah's book and discuss self worth, shared histories, race, and gentrification.

Nnekay is in NEW YORK!!! Any every street is her runway! Once Nnekay got off her jalopy of a plane (after being tortured by children and Tom Ford), James has shown her THE. TOWN. But before we get to that, we cover how the American AssClown sent out tweets banning the trans community from the military, Nnekay and James discuss. In Nnekay's Korner, she gives us the direct opposite of Dunkirk, and examines how American Black GIs were treated and existed in the UK during WWII. The results might be SURPRISING. In James' Korner he starts an open conversation regarding the proposed new HBO show, Confederates. What in the hell are Game of Thrones showrunners, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss THINKING by making a show imagining a world where the South succeeded in secession. Closing out the show, Nnekay and James discuss the new movie obsession- KIDNAP starring our Hollywood QUEEN Halle Berry. You know they're gonna break down that trailer.

The Wonder Twins of Podcasting have transformed into Amelia & Badelia, and one of them... we'll say Badelia (James) explains the entire plot of Beauty & The Beast- the live action version to Nnekay... or rather Amelia (no spoilers because it's pretty much the same as the animated version- but James- we mean Badelia is in to it)! Let's go over the chronological timeline of Lil Kim's face. What happened? She was so cute! We must talk about A Wrinkle in Time and how amazeballs it's going to be! Speaking of Amazing things: Spider-Man! But not The Amazing Spider-Man with angst Andrew Garfield (who Badelia ((James) was a big a fan of)) but Spider-Man Homecoming is swinging into our hearts (see what we did there)? James/Badelia continues the exploration of Queen Califia and the California Blacks from last episode. If they did exist, what happened, and where did they go? If you got a kid in your life Amelia (AKA Nnekay) has just the thing for their summer reading with another booklisticle: Social Justice & Activism Books for the younger folks. Yay!

Were you down with Ewoks? One of the Wonder Twins of Podcasting confesses their love, while the other demands reparations! Don't quite consider yourself a Millennial or apart of Generation X?! Good news theirs a made up sub-sect to make yourself feel better: Xennial. Nnekay breaks down why theirs a lack of women, and specifically women of color in the field of Astronomy and fingers seem to point towards: sexual harassment. Come on Physicist! Keep it together! James is going to blow your mind with the untold story of Queen Califia. Who was this African Queen of California? Was she a myth? Or were here and many Blacks before her living in the New Lands of the Americas long before white European settlers? The answer... might surprise you... or maybe not if your'e listening to this podcast. All this and more on this EPIC episode of Minority Korner!

Summer Skool is in session! But not Jeff Sessions- fuck that guy! The Wonder Twins of Podcasting are still talking about the 4th of July, and trying to come up with the lyrics of Stars and Stripes for Ever. Get ready to learn about the game that is changing dominoes forever: Hollywood Dominoes! And what happened when James had a showdown with his Aunties at the 4th of July: a star was born! ... again. Nnekay weighs in about the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling. And it's Nnekay vs. James in the debate about Bidets... we've been waiting for this! It is the Minority Korner Summer Skool Spectacular Session Quizlet! We hope Nnekay studied: What city is home to the largest Book Fair in the U.S.? Hint it's a place you might want to book for your summer travels- it's a hot place to be LGBT! Are frosted tips making a comeback? Is the gay leather scene dead? Who prefers their mens hairy or hairless, Ladies or Gays? Iggy Azealia & Azealia Banks united together! Then Nnekay walks us through Medicare and what it really is, how it relates to race and gender and what we can do to protect it. Also Jay-Z's 4:44! It's time to get crazy!

The Wonder Twins of Podcast break down the late nineties teen group Cleopatra. James has had a an epiphany that he's a Dinah Lohan, just supporting and boosting (and sharing) the talent and success. Nnekay has a glamour tryst in gold country, and discovers a little thing called pretty privilege as introduced by Janet Mock. Get ready to clutch your pearls because James might not be familiar with a Super Star from RuPaul's Drag Race. In Nnekay's Korner, she covers how Climate Change and Race are connected through a study that was conducted by researchers from UC Berkeley and Princeton. As the temperature rises, so does the divide the wealth. In James' Korner, he is here to give an audio pamphlet for straight guys navigating gay bars. He knows they're coming, might as well give them some guidelines so everyone can have a fun time and let gay bars remain a space space for who they were created for.

James's birthday came and went and for our two year anniversary of the podcast we updated our photos!!! The wonder twins give a tutorial on how to do a proper jump photo, watch out Tyra! Even though we don't mention Michael Jordan, we try to talk sports by talking about sports superstars. James breaks down the HBO movie, The Life of Henrietta Lacks- his everlasting love of Rose Byrne and mediocre appreciation for Oprah. James is confused, mystified, and interested by all the happenings with Bachelor in Paradise. Little known fact, Nnekay is apart of Bachelor Nation- so she is ready to school James on all the haps. In James' Korner, he breaks down the statistics and percentages of drug use and alcohol consumption in the LGBTQ community. Which might come as a surprise to you as it did to Nnekay. In addition to the stats, James gives tips on how to party safely and have fun without tragedy. In Nnekay's Korner, to celebrate the 45th birthday of Title IX, Nnekay references a feministing.com article to elaborate on what Title IX is and the many aspects and people it protects in our school system. Also... what's up with poodles?
