Episode 133

21st June 2018

In the Korners, Nnekay talks about Romans 13 the bible verse that has been use to give legitimacy to many horrific events in world history- including most recently Jeff Sessions’ use of it to plead the case for separating undocumented families. James talks about California’s dirty past of trying but (thankfully) failing to ban black people from living in the state.

Episode notes

James is BACK in the BAY! But sadly the duo aren’t in the same room, yet- but that’s coming! James had his West Coast debut as a comedian at a cat themed stand up show. The wonder twins talk art history and the majesty of Beyonce and Jay-Z aka The Carters and their new album and the visual richness of the video for Apeshit. Nnekay went to Janelle Monae and has lost all of her damn edges due to the sheer amazingness black female empowerment. The night before James went to Kathy Griffin at the same venue!!! He talks abut her fight against the Trump Administration. In the Korners, Nnekay talks about Romans 13 the bible verse that has been use to give legitimacy to many horrific events in world history- including most recently Jeff Sessions’ use of it to plead the case for separating undocumented families.
