MK298: We’ve Seen this Before (Anti Trans Bills, Lil Nas X, Real World NY Reunion, Concrete Cowboy, Amend, Daunte Wright, Lt. Caron Nazario, George Floyd, Pot in NYC, Filibuster or Bust?, #AbolishTheSenate)

Episode 298

16th April 2021

It’s double the Black and double the gay with guest co-host Kyle Ishmael (he/him). We talk Concrete Cowboy which uncovers James’ beef with Idris Elba (please don’t cancel him). The Real World NY is must see TV in the age of Black Lives Matter. More violence against unarmed black men at the hands of the police, but have we reached a tipping point? Why we are not watching the trial of the murder of George Floyd. Anti Trans bills are on a historic rise, James has the numbers, the data, Kyle helps break down the Republicans strategy, we talk why we must all stand up NOW, and what you can do to help. Plus we talk politics with our politico Kyle, pot in NY, and should we get rid of the filibuster? And we weigh in on our sis Lil Nas X’s controversy.
