This week join James and Renee for Get On Up- highlights from this week’s shows! We’re giving you a taste of James and Renee Colvert (from Max Fun’s own Can I Pet Your Dog) new show! We start with a weekend check in and James did some serious damage to his wallet at Macys. We talk about roller coasters and which ones are our faves, the issue with zoos and how do we contribute to the problem? In our news segment James talks about a possibility of Britney Spears coming back onto the music scene, how Pixar is making up for Disney’s ‘Don’t Say Gay’ involvement, and Renee discusses a new reboot of an old fan fav Buffy The Vampire Slayer and an all Black Battalion that’s finally getting its roses. James will then take us on a journey through the life and time of Josephine Baker the legendary artist , activist, dancer, singer, and … spy!!!???!!!? Lastly we play Wildin’ and Workin it: during the confirmation hearings of the fabulous Ketanji Brown Jackson, was Senator Lindsay Graham Wildin’? The parents of potentially gay dog gave it up for adoption- were they wildin’? Are they wildin’ making another ‘And Just Like That’ season 2? Are the Jeopardy contestants wildin’ in their answers? Chime on in, as we decide together!

About the show
Are you easily confused by terms like cultural appropriation, cisgender, toxic masculinity, twunk, queer, black girl magic, and woke? Or maybe you’re tired of explaining terms like these and you need a community that gets you! Welcome to Minority Korner, where we take an introspective look at the world. through an intersectional lens. Join James: a queer, political, comedian, self proclaimed, sexy blerd (that’s Black Nerd) and each week he’s joined in the Korner by another fabulous minority tackling pop culture, the news, media, and history all with a little self care, and self love sprinkled throughout! It’s time to Learn, Laugh, and Play, right here at Minority Korner- because together: we’re the majority!
