This week James is steering the ship with a korner dedicated to the greatness of James Baldwin, but before the wonder twins start their adoration- we gotta talk about Delta. Gurl, Delta you betta fix your mess! James was cast as Jury number 1 in the role of actual real life civic duty. The two also talk about heritage and slavery and how big of an impact it has on modern times. Also: remember Tia Carrere? Where is she? In the singular korner for the day, it's all things James Baldwin! First unpacking the amazing documentary I Am Not Your Negro. Then a test- who has more James Baldwin knowledge?! Lastly... who knew J.Lo would cause such a rift! Enjoy!

See James do Stand Up August 11th at 9:30pm in NYC! Tickets:
