We have a very special, hilarious, episode to help you laugh off that post Thanksgiving food if you were so fortunate to partake, or if you are out in the midst of Black Friday- we’ve got some funnies for you with the hilarious Emerald Collie from UCB’s Improv team Token and the world of Animation. We dig into those Disney+ archives, Emerald try’s to jog James’ memory of Oliver and Company he can’t seem to remember. Speaking of Disney+ they have new disclaimers for culturally insensitive material but is it enough, and is another studio showing them up? We put James’ theater theory degree to use and talk about the Brechteian Effect and how it’s used effectively in storytelling. We talk traveling to England, the Theater! And Emma Watson has married herself? What’s that about? Self Partnering? We have questions. We review 25 amazing things to be grateful for that are dope that happened in 2019 amongst POCs, LGBTQ, media, politics, the environment, and Emerald being from the world of animation takes us into a look at that world in terms of it’s diversity, the challenges, where it is, where it’s going, and who’s doing it right with some awesome recommendations.
Great things that have happened in 2019:

About the show
Are you easily confused by terms like cultural appropriation, cisgender, toxic masculinity, twunk, queer, black girl magic, and woke? Or maybe you’re tired of explaining terms like these and you need a community that gets you! Welcome to Minority Korner, where we take an introspective look at the world. through an intersectional lens. Join James: a queer, political, comedian, self proclaimed, sexy blerd (that’s Black Nerd) and each week he’s joined in the Korner by another fabulous minority tackling pop culture, the news, media, and history all with a little self care, and self love sprinkled throughout! It’s time to Learn, Laugh, and Play, right here at Minority Korner- because together: we’re the majority!
