Episode notes

Glory is back in the copilot seat, and James catches her up on what a Captain Marvel is, and his thoughts on this groundbreaking movie, and why these dude trolls be trollin- don’t straight dudes like women? Kuddos to Rotten Tomatoes and other platforms who are changing their systems to combat Trollism. James just finished watching Finidng Neverland, thank God Oprah had a one hour special to help him unpack it, and Glory who hasn’t seen it yet, we’ll just say things stop getting pretty funny and they get into an impassioned debate, which of course this is very triggering stuff that we’re bringing to light, and probably will be for a long time as we continue to have in depth conversations about abuse, and believing survivors, healing, and stopping the cycle of abuse. In honor of women’s history month James is celebrating the late activist Marielle Franco of Brazil, a Black, lesbian, single mother politician who was assassinated a year ago, and Glory is giving us the low down on Black lady self made billionaire Madame C J Walker who was helping Black folks with their hair before it was taken over by white folks. Stick around to the end because we get in a conversation about Will Smith’s latest controversial casting around colorism, and I’m not talking about his blue roll. Also in a first ever we have Glory’s special Astrology Korner just for you because Mercury is in retrograde- or as we like to say: reset.
