Episode notes

Coming hot from a jam packed weekend in Fire Island James has notes on… the Hunger Game movies? The duo talk about these movies, also some how Omarosa manages to squeeze herself back into the fray with their conversation as well. Nnekay takes us back with the story of the Dominican Republic’s baseball team Dragones de Ciudad Trujillo- created by 1937 dictator Rafael Trujillo. A team while created in a time of fascism still managed to treat black baseball players better than the United States. James investigates the difference between various terms that we might have misused in past episodes: Pansexual, Bisexual, and Sexually Fluid. We’re here to grow just like everyone else!
