James went to a party and some said some rancid stuff that might include a taboo word during Taboo. We're also talking about the new Little Mermaid with excitement. Also Bette Midler needs to learn how to read a room especially at World Pride. James is tackling how we can do our part to help close the detention centers, actually let's call them what they really are: concentration camps. Nnekay is talking about how anthropology needs to be reexamined becuase it is alllll mixed up with racism and bias.

"The Simpsons," Quentin Tarantino and comedy come together on Go Fact Yourself!

Sasheer Zamata is best known for her roles on "Saturday Night Live" and as the host of the variety showcase Sasheer Zamata Party Time. She’ll tell us about why a very... confusing invasion of her privacy has her so protective of her personal possessions.

Sasheer will go up against actor Samm Levine, who you may know from the Quentin Tarentino film Inglorious Basterds. He’s also in the beloved, but short-lived, TV series "Freaks and Geeks." He’s heard from a lot of fans who say they wish that show hadn’t ended so abruptly. But good news: he’ll share his solution to keeping "Freaks and Geeks" going for just a little longer.

What’s the difference: Space

What’s the difference between a meteor and a meteorite?

What’s the difference between a nook and a cranny?
