Episode notes

Nnekay needs a theme song for her soon to be half hour sit-com, and James has got one for her! James has finally watched the American Crime Story: The People vs. OJ, and there is much to talk about. Especially since this podcast didn’t’ exist then. Nnekay and James unpack the trial itself, the performances, and the importance of this trial as it was set in a time right after the Rodney King riots, exposing racism, police brutality, and the so called justice system. In our first Korner, Nnekay, is gonna learn you about the massacre of 1000’s of Mexican-Americans, and will reveal the origins of all this “Wall” talk, and the history of the Texas Rangers and their overall awfulness.
