We are so chuffed for this weeks episode! It’s the Maximum Fun Drive and we have an action packed episode! Nnekay will be joining throughout the episode in our Maxim Fun Drive segments. We have returning to Minority Korner Jennifer Covington, self help guru, extraordinary and host of Shine on Sista Podcast. With all the hard hitting documentary series what makes a series like Leaving Neverland, Surviving R. Kelly, or My Strange Addiction, helpful and when is it just voyeuristic? What makes a cult a cult- how to know you’re in one, and why Jen and James might be susceptible to cults. Remember hit Netflix show “on My Block”? ... We kind of do. We remember enjoying it but can’t remember what it was about- but it’s BACK! Jen leads us through a great conversation about the 5 Levels of Interaction she learned at a seminar by the MANKind Project, and these tips will help you navigate this debate filled world, and how to use your power and privilege. With the college admissions scandal plaguing our psyche’s James focuses in on the real scandal: White Affirmative Action. It’s a thing! Plus gay prime minister Leo Varadkar, visits... Mike Pence? Whaaaaat?  All this and more on this special episode of Minority Korner: Maximum Fun Drive edition!

Judy Greer

Biz and Theresa get stuck holding the bag…and the water bottles, and the half eaten sandwich, and the “art” and the toddler. Where in all those parenting books did it warn us that there would be so much carrying? Perhaps it's less about the stuff and more about feeling like a haggard and broken coat rack left outside? Yeah, probably. Plus, Biz does not know, Theresa gets a clue, and we are beyond psyched to have Judy Greer (Married, Archer, Let's Go Luna!, Ask the StoryBots, and soooo many more) on the show this week, talking about being a step-mom and so much more. This is Week One of the #MaxFunDrive and you can join or upgrade your membership and get awesome thank-you gifts at maximumfun.org/donate -- AND WE THANK YOU.

When a familiar face brings Kira news from the scrap yard, she’s back on a cold case from before the end of the occupation. But when the Cardassians catch wind of the news, she’ll have to team up with Dukat to beat up some Storm Troopers. Should you give musical instruments to your friend’s children? How do you tell the difference between guts and robes? Is Dukat gambling in his own Game of Buttholes? It’s the first week of #MaxFunDrive 2019!

Our goal is 2,000 new and upgrading supporters. If we hit the goal, we’re going to build a Millenium Falcon lego set and drop it off something, and we’re going to make a short documentary about the whole thing!

Glory is back in the copilot seat, and James catches her up on what a Captain Marvel is, and his thoughts on this groundbreaking movie, and why these dude trolls be trollin- don't straight dudes like women? Kuddos to Rotten Tomatoes and other platforms who are changing their systems to combat Trollism. James just finished watching Finidng Neverland, thank God Oprah had a one hour special to help him unpack it, and Glory who hasn’t seen it yet, we'll just say things stop getting pretty funny and they get into an impassioned debate, which of course this is very triggering stuff that we’re bringing to light, and probably will be for a long time as we continue to have in depth conversations about abuse, and believing survivors, healing, and stopping the cycle of abuse. In honor of women’s history month James is celebrating the late activist Marielle Franco of Brazil, a Black, lesbian, single mother politician who was assassinated a year ago, and Glory is giving us the low down on Black lady self made billionaire Madame C J Walker who was helping Black folks with their hair before it was taken over by white folks. Stick around to the end because we get in a conversation about Will Smith’s latest controversial casting around colorism, and I’m not talking about his blue roll. Also in a first ever we have Glory’s special Astrology Korner just for you because Mercury is in retrograde- or as we like to say: reset.
