Episode 81

25th May 2017

As promised (from two weeks ago) James finishes the second part of his investigation into immigration, this time focusing on Asian immigration which led him to connect the dots to the myth about the “Model Minority”. In Nnekay’s Korner she is going to sprinkle some pop culture with her facts as she looks at “The Handmaiden’s Tale”, are the laws in this fantasy already a reality?

Episode notes

We are going to bring TWO kinds of Nasty this week, as the Nasty Train Express takes off…choo choo! Nnekay finally saw ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ and James has a question he’s been burning to ask her- don’t worry no spoilers, but was the portrayal of Mantis kind of offensive? Also Nnekay gives us her takeaways from the hit Netflix series ‘Masters of None’, while James goes off on a tangent about ‘Passions’. As promised (from two weeks ago) James finishes the second part of his investigation into immigration, this time focusing on Asian immigration which led him to connect the dots to the myth about the “Model Minority”. In Nnekay’s Korner she is going to sprinkle some pop culture with her facts as she looks at “The Handmaiden’s Tale”, are the laws in this fantasy already a reality? Plus in Quizlet Korner: Does Mike Pence want to have sex with horses? Is Johnny Depp a champion for women? Why is there ANOTHER movie based on a ride, now in it’s 5th installment? All this and more as we get… NASTY from all the angles!
