Welcome to the Boobie Bonanza aka Minority Korner, where James and Nnekay might just have figured out their new tag line? Do you like? James breaks down his trip to Virginia, the expected and the unexpected and came back with a souvenir... a farmer's tan! The duo discusses potentially doing a radio play and from there we get into... James's Korner. James' discusses his ongoing struggles with anxiety and decides to unpack what he's going through and shares some of the tools he's been using to help him cope. He discusses The Anxiety Podcast, Deep Breathing, and Juggling? Using The Artist Way, James has been and encourages listeners to participate in a Reading Deprivation Exercise and general unplugging to reconnect with their bodies. Also don't forget to Play! In Nnekay's Korner, she's been hearing a bunch of negative news especially surrounding black women and black people in unexpected careers including, John Ridley's omission of black women in his most recent miniseries, how ABC almost didn't want to cast a black woman in the lead of Scandal, and the neglect of praise for great black architect Paul Revere Williams. So to combat these stories, Nnekay has decided to introduce the audience to four amazing Black Women Mathematicians. In Quizlet Korner, James' goes completely off the grid and gives Nnekay questions that pertain too but aren't limited too: Plantations, Betsy Devos, Raven Simone, and Scientology. Phew! Enjoy Everyone!!!
