We've got the fabulous Angélique Roché, is a journalist, attorney, content creator, and communications professional focused on the intersections of activism, policy, politics, current events, and nerd and pop cultures as seen on Marvel and SYFY Wire, and she makes herself right at home! We discuss JLO and the Grammy's (who thought it was ok for to give the Motown tribute). Angelique proposes we need to get a redux on Black History because it's been ruined between all the blackface, Liam Neeson, Kanye and more. James is assuming that if you're white you've probably done blackface at some point. And then these two blerds nerd out heavily on Charmed (old/new), and Buffy (old/potential reboot?). Who's more treacherous to cross- the Beyhive or the Babylon 5 hive? James walks us through the first ever on screen Black Kiss dating all the way back to 1895 and the importance and revolutionary act of Black love on the screen. Also in honor of our guest cohost we have new mics! Enjoy that new sound in your ear holes!

This week we're kicking off February with some stories about white people being ridiculous... ahem Liam Neeson and his racist predatory past, and Governor Ralph Northam and his Blackface confessions. What is going on?! Gwyneth Paltrow is looking at a lawsuit by barreling down the mountain while skiing and taking out an old man, and James has two tickets to the next Fyre Festivalllllll! Is Nnekay going to take him up on that offer? In the Korners, Nnekay is bringing you another fab book list, this time covering Children's books with Native American and Indigenous Female leads!

MKEP 151: CC Me! CC Me! (Fighting Back Against The Memo, Transgender Rights, Megyn Kelly, Blackface, Halloween)

This week Nnekay and James are fighting back against the awful memo that was passed around to major agencies in our government about the definition of gender. Before we get to the main event, James and Nnekay wonder... is Halloween still fun? Speaking of Halloween, Megyn Kelly has some questions about costumes as well, specifically Blackface. Let's just say she's WRONG in her opinions. Luke Cage and Iron Fist are getting cancelled, which makes James wonder if Disney has something up it's sleeves- James also elaborates on his newest obsession: DocuDramas! James kicks of the first korner by explaining what this memo is all about, and how it can impact the lives of Transgender and Gender Non Conforming people. James also gives tips on how we can fight back against this hateful ass memo and what we can uplift and support each other. Nnekay takes the baton by giving more tips on self preservation for POC transgender and gender non conforming people. She also gives a trusty dusty list of books that celebrate and lift up the voices of those apart of the community. Also did James manage to get yelled at by George Takei? I think you know the answer.

See James perform at the Broadway Comedy Club, Sat Oct 27th @6pm!

Make your reservation for VIP Tickets: 212-252-2369
