Episode notes

Today we are all about the FACT-FACTS and not the Alternative facts that seems to be dominating all the media outlets these days. It is Spring Break and is Nnekay having the time of her life orjust crying at the blind auditions on The Voice? James has some questions for Nnekay: What is the origin of the term ‘Becky” and what exactly is the Women’s Boycott or rather #daywithoutawoman? Nnekay tried to explain the best she can. Both are APPALLED by the nonsense that has spewed from Ben Carson’s dumb mouth. James wants to give him a pamphlet to educate him on slavery, meanwhile, Nnekay just wants him to float away to Island of AWAY. In James’ korner, he tackles the truth about Gay Loneliness.
