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! James will be revisiting the football protest in honor of Janet Jackson appreciation day aka the Superbowl. We end the show with an important announcement, so stick till the end!

Pop Rocket

This week's show is a double dose of schadenfreude!

The gang compares the dueling documentaries Hulu's "Fyre Fraud" and Netflix's "Fyre," which tell different versions of the tropical shit show that landed its mastermind Billy McFarland behind bars.

All Abouts

Wynter is all about Crashing and True Detective.

Margaret is all about the memoir Love and Trouble: A Midlife Reckoning by Claire Dederer, who you may recognize from her article in the Paris Review What Do We Do with the Art of Monstrous Men.

Karen is all about CATWALK: Tales from the Cat Show Circuit on Netflix, and the rivalry between a “well-muscled” Turkish Angora named Bobby, and a voluminous Red Persian named Oh La La.

Guy is all about Sex Education on Netflix.

That's My Jam

Wynter: Phil Collins - I'm Not Moving (Idjut Boys remix)

Karen: Queen - Play the Game

Margaret: ROSALÍA - MALAMENTE

Guy: Mark Ronson (feat. Miley Cyrus - Nothing Breaks Like a Heart

With Guy Branum, Karen Tongson, Margaret Wappler, Wynter Mitchell-Rohrbaugh

Glass

Look Mom! A new 'Who Shot Ya?'! This week the crew is joined by the delectable Jared Logan ('Best Week Ever', 'I Love the 2000s') and they're talking about the new Shyamalan joint, Glass. The gang vents their frustration over having to watch Unbreakable, Split, and Glass in order to prepare for this week's episode. They also dissect the work of M. Night Shyamalan and the traps he seems to frequently fall in to. They analyze the Oscar nominations and determine whether the Academy listened to any of their recommendations. And lastly, as always, staff picks.

In news, Ja Rule is also a victim of the Fyre Festival, Leslie Jones is not happy with the new Ghostbusters, and several major theater chains will not screen Roma.

Staff Picks:

Ricky - Baskin
Alonso - Go Tell It on the Mountain
Jared - Wild Tales
April - Picnic at Hanging Rock

With April Wolfe, Jared Logan, Alonso Duralde, and Ricky Carmona.
