This week, the Wonder Twins are back and ready for the second week of 2018. Is Nnekay naked?! James investigates. James has discovered The Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell. Nnekay is super excited because and has loved him for a long time and pumps his podcast: Revisionist History. Going back to Tipping Point the twins discuss if they are Connectors, Mavens, or Salespeople. Also, the current Tipping Point we may be in. Speaking of… the Golden Globes! Specifically, Oprah’s amazing speech, which motivated all of us to do better, be better, and get ready to fight. Not to mention Recy Taylor- Say Her Name! Continuing the trend of the Golden Globes, Nnekay decides to cover the topic of #TimesUp and the men who wore the pins on the red carpet. Are some of them hypocrites? Do they need to take those pins off? Or is it as simple as saying a sincere “sorry”? She’ll give you the facts to find out. In James’s Korner- he decides to educate everyone by covering the various racial politics that surround food and obesity in America. Why does obesity effect some races more than others? What are food desserts? How does heart disease factor in killing a disproportion of people of color? As a possible solution James speaks the truths of The Whole 30 and how it might help you re-calibrate your view on food. Thanks for listening and have a good week!
