Did Miss Mary Mack die in that nursery rhyme? Or did James have a dark upbringing? Nnekay investigates! Before we get to the korners we''re talking Stacey Abram giving the response to the State of the Union representing the Democratic Party and what that means for the future of the party. Tessa Thompson is vowing to work for more female directors, and we dig in to a little Celebrity Big Brother and their complicated ass rules. James is leading this episode with a Korner called his State of the Que-Union... see what he did there? He's breaking down the state of affairs for the LGBTQ+ community, including the horrific racism and homophobia that Jussie Smollett endured in Chicago, plus Queer superheroes on the TV screen, will we have our first out gay Presidential contender? What is this new scientific finding, and California law around HIV that is potentially going to change the landscape for those living with the virus?

Show: 
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

Nnekay and James are a splashing around in the giggle pool reminiscing about Nnekay's wild weekend- first a guest spot on the live taping of Judge John Hodgeman at the legendary Castro Theater! Then a baby shower for what James' dubs The Bay Area's Baby! James managed to help plan the shower from across the country because that's what friends are for (Thanks Dionne). Next Up- We got a little incident of trolling going on James' facebook page, mostly surrounding Kamala Harris and her Presidential Bid... by you guessed it- Nnekay. The wonder twins break down what happened and how we got to that point. In the Korners- Nnekay talks about Black People in horror movies. Some good, some bad, some are Candyman. James then helps us all with some tips on how to survive and THRIVE this next Election Cycle of 2020. We also talk Martin Luther King Jr. and Spike Lee.

Show:

We start this episode off with a round up of all things 2018. Can you even believe it?!?!? Black Panther and Crazy Rich Asians came out, the Olympics happened- this year has been a whirlwind! We got the wind knocked out of in 2017 and we persevered in 2018. We kicked our asses into gear and plan to continued to so in 2019. Nnekay and James share their hopes and dreams for the next year. With a little detour into why mud baths are annoying and James' trip to the Van Jones' Show. In the Korners- we have our two favorite from the past year: Nnekay's korner is from Episode 140 and is all about the epidemic plaguing our country: Black Maternal Mortality. James' Korner is from Episode 124 and is about Black Queens (four specifically)... remember Queen Candice!? Also a lot of questionable pronunciations.

Let's jump right in and get to it! First- we start with a little recap break down of The Oscars. Who won, who presented, who should have won, and what confused us. Nnekay actually was busy taking in a little theater while the Oscars was airing, Book of Mormon and both Nnekay and James share their thoughts (and some side eyes) on the 2012 musical. In the Korners, Nnekay covers 8 Indigenous Authors and their text that you should check out! James' breaks down 10 Black LGBTQ movies to help you with the Moonlight withdrawals. Rounding out the episode we GUSH over he greatness of the How to Get Away with Murder/ Scandal. Kerry Washington and Viola Davis were powerhouses, the newly shared universe, and who might be crossing from show to the other. Happy Friday!

The Wonder Twins are back in action! James has just come off the plane from his magical, ridiculous, and confidential trip to Vegas! Some of the things he CAN talk about are: his run in with a Korner Kid, the Divas review, and Britney Spears. Also is Las Vegas LGBTQ friendly? In Nnekay's Korner she combs through The Hollywood Reporter to get you the hot scoop on TV shows in development staring or created by People of Color! Lots of great things coming from Jordan Peele, Gina Rodriguez, and more! James is tackling the Whedonverse and it's creator Joss Whedon. Recently his wife has claimed that his feminism might not be as truthful as he states! James tackles several different points that chip away at his self proclaimed "woke bae-ness". Never fear though, James gives advice to those who still love his work, and the duo talks about how to love the art work of someone you can't help but side eye.

Internet Recommendations from Jason Kottke

Jason Kottke of Kottke.org, a collection of some of the finest links the internet has to offer, brings us this week’s culture picks. Jason starts us out by recommending Vol Libre, a short animation from 1980 that wowed people with its fractal-generated graphics when it was made and still impresses today.

Next, Jason recommends The Tommy Westphall Universe, an exploration of all of the television programs connected to St. Elsewhere and therefore relegated to dream status by the final reveal that St. Elsewhere itself was a dream.

Comedians Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele

Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele are actors, comedians, and the creators and co-stars of the Comedy Central sketch show Key & Peele. They met during their years as cast members on MADtv; you might also recognize Jordan from adult swim's Childrens Hospital or perhaps you caught them both as commune-dwelling hippies in the film Wanderlust. In their show, Keegan and Jordan go from stand-up, to sketches about Scrabble, to a top-notch presidential impersonation.

Their series gives them full creative control over their comedy, but that hasn't always been the case. They join us to discuss the behind-the-scenes creative process of MADtv (and the difficulties therein), the keys to developing strong impressions, and exploring the humor of their bi-racial identities. Plus, Jordan divulges the details of an original card game he invented for movie buffs!

Key & Peele airs Wednesday nights on Comedy Central. Season one is availabile in stores now on DVD and Blu-ray. This interview originally aired February 28, 2012.
