MKEP299: The Work Continues (Derek Chauvin Verdict, National Day of Silence, Seaspiracy, Scott Rudin #Broadwayfightsback, Karen Olivio, Reparations, Supporting Black Owned Businesses, Bachelor Colton Underwood Comes Out)

Episode 299

22nd April 2021

Thank goddess our editor Sarah Brown (she/her) hops from behind the mic to in front of it, because the verdict of the trial of Derek Chauvin for the murder of George Floyd is in- we react, our honest thoughts, feelings, and what’s next. Then in Broadway news we talk about our Sparkling Diamond Karen Olivio’s departure from Moulin Rouge in protest of the industry’s ignoring of big time producer Scott Rudin’s abuse – and dive into the systemic nature of his behavior. Where’s HR? James have taken the bait and fallen down the rabbit hole with the Netflix documentary Seaspircy. In the main Korner, in honor of National Day of Silence, and on the heels of the Bachelor’s Colton Underwoods coming out, James walks us through the importance of The National Day of Silence, it’s meaning, and what it means queer folks, particularly youth. Then Sarah shows us what reparations can look like in supporting Black businesses, in her own BQQVC Korner, and really has all the items you’ll need for your next 4/20!
