Poets, Pioneers, and A Chip’d Tooth (Get Out, Historical Transgender Women, POC Poets, David Kaluuya/Samuel L. Jackson, and crows)

Episode 72

17th March 2017

Nnekay’s up first and she is going to snap us into some POC Poets you need to know about. We’re going to get all NPR on your ass, as Nnekay recites, spits, and slams so dope poetry at you. In celebration of Women’s Month, James is going to take us back to school and educate us on some important Historical Transgender Women, who nobody ever talks about.

Episode notes

James has been horribly disfigured from an intense salad eating gone array! There goes his toothpaste modeling career, but Nnekay has some ideas on how to fix it, although they might be more entertaining than helpful. Lawwd James needs your help, as he’s involved in an awful production that seems to be getting it all wrong about being gay, Black, getting news that you’re HIV+, and essentially how to put on a proper production. A production that seems to have Tyler Perry aspirations. We’re not knocking Tyler Perry… (but we’re knocking Tyler Perry…). Nnekay’s up first and she is going to snap us into some POC Poets you need to know about. We’re going to get all NPR on your ass, as Nnekay recites, spits, and slams so dope poetry at you. In celebration of Women’s Month, James is going to take us back to school and educate us on some important Historical Transgender Women, who nobody ever talks about. Guess who’s back? Quizlet! And she is looking goooooood! She is going to test your knowledge: what did Samuel L. Jackson say about ‘Get Out’ star David Kaluuya? Aretha Franklin is retiring, and Patti La Belle has some thoughts on the matter! And what is going on with this Indiana High School, and it’s… “Straight Pride”… oh lawwwd! Get these kids some Minority Korner! Also crows are intelligent, who knew! All this and more!!!
