Hola! We are coming to you from around the globe, as James is in Espana and being unapologetically Black overseas, while spreading the gospel about racism in America like a Paul Revere. James is also working like a bastard, why do they work so hard, training for the Avengers 10K, accidentally joining separatist protests, and making a crazy film that may bring in the Spanish new wave of film making. Meanwhile back in the states, Nnekay has fallen in love with a new dog, and her bitch Zelda might not be having it. Also, maybe British Black actors leading American biopics might not be such a bad idea in terms of overseas appeal, aka John Boyega in Detroit, has found a home in Espana. Then we go to the main event: Writer/Comedian (not Comedienne) Janine Brito! We discuss the haunted Poconos Manner, getting lost in the forest, what to do when your family voted for Trump, why you should turn off Reality TV and do something, what's it like to be a lesbian comedian in LA, and create an idea for embroidered pillows on the go! Also someone please call James' mother, and tell her that he is safe in Europe. All this and more!

Pedro Almodóvar on his new film Julieta, Spain in the 1980’s, and why he never writes about himself

Pedro Almodóvar has been making art for almost 4 decades. Whether that be music, writing, or directing, he has a distinct, bold, and critically acclaimed vision to his art. Originally from a small rural town in Spain, Pedro moved to Madrid in his late teens to study film. His artistic endeavors flourished during the Spanish cultural revolution that followed Francos death in 1975. His first film of distinction was called Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, for which he was nominated for the 1988 Best Foreign Film Academy Award. Since then, he has won two Golden Globe and two Academy awards, among many others.

This week, Jesse sits down with Pedro to talk about his new dramatic endeavor Julieta, his new wave band, and his unseen ailment.
