MK197: Glory from the Block (Hustlers, Weird LGBT History Facts, The Emmy's, Billy Porter, Mayor Pete, Libra Season, JLO)

Minority Korner
Glory Mora

Glory's back on the podcast sitting in the co-host chair and she is ready to read all of our astrologies as an unofficial astrologist. Glory saw 'Hustlers' and she has notes- and isn't sure why it's getting Oscar buzz. The Emmy's happened and Billy Porter is inspiring us all: the category is Love! Michelle Williams is showing what it means to be an ally! Keke Palmer lives in a blissful world where she has no idea who Dick Cheney is. Glory got digitally flashed on the subway! In some gay news: Is Mayor Pete Gay enough? What does that even mean? Do people still need to come out as HIV+? Oakland's Gay men's chorus office was vandalized. James is still writing the history wave with random/weird LGBT Facts: what was the oldest gay chat line? We revisit the Sacred Band of Thebes, a group of 300 men who fought, loved, and fucked each other. What does the ancient Chinese saying 'cut of the sleeve' mean? Glory, our resident astrologist lets us know that it's Libra Season and what we can expect. Water signs it's going to be a bumpy season- so find the balance!

Pop Rocket Ep. 214 - We Marie-Kondo the Oscars w/ Matt Rogers

Pop Rocket
Matt Rogers

Matt Rogers joins us to help tidy up the Oscars. The 91-year-old institution has gotten a bit cluttered, so the Pop Rocket panel applies the KonMari Method to the Academy Awards. We’ll keep everything that sparks joy, and the rest will be dropped off at an Out of the Closet in a Hefty bag. Will the short film and animated short categories survive? What about song and dance numbers? Find out.

Let us know if you agree with the panel, or take issue by sharing your thoughts in the comments section below.

All Abouts

Guy remembers his friend and beloved comedian Brody Stevens, who died by suicide last week.

Wynter is all about Kind Hearts & Coronets.

Margaret wants everyone to take a moment to appreciate actress and wordsmith Dame Emma Thompson for her recent letter to Skydance detailing why she will not work with John Lasseter.

Karen Tongson is NOT about the speculation that Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga are boffing. And for everyone going gaga over their duet, she reminds us of another live performance with off the charts chemistry, Barbra Streisand and Neil Diamond at the 1980 Grammys singing
You Don't Bring Me Flowers

Matt Rogers, the self-described “roller coaster bitch” is all about Hagrid Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure ride that’s coming to Disneyworld.
