Ring, ring, ring leave another message at the Minority Korner Beep! The wonder twins are still separated by land, and sea and try to reach each other! First up James calls Nnekay and gives her all the snaps on her voicemail korner of last week. Also the VMA's happened, and James is feeling old and out of the loop. D23 Happened and James has some hot exciting takes on what else Marvel/Disney+ will be rolling out to take all of our money and eyeball time. One of the Koch brothers died and James is conflicted on how to respond. James also shares some Bossip with Nnekay around Queer Eye/Real World's Karamo Brown who stepped in it this week. Also the Glow Up did a great deep dive into why we still have unequal pay for women of color. Nnekay hops on the horn and tries to give James a call who's still over in Europe. She has to tell him all about how the Amazon is burning, and what we can do to help! All this and more on PT2 of Minority Korner Voicemail Conversations!

Story Break

Forget about comic books - what if EVERY Disney IP merged together for gigantic multi-feature series? We attempt to visualize what this fan fest might look like! Note: NO Avengers Endgame spoilers here (because we all hadn't seen it yet). Warning: This episode contains Freddie's very bad interpretation of a Cajun? French accent? We're still unsure.
