We kick things off with a giggle, in a burning search for where is Shanice? We may not have answers but we got questions! James has some info about 90's pop group Ace of Base... and we'll just say you'll never listen to them the same again. James sounds like a party girl but not for the reasons you think- he was off drinking the empowerment kool-aid at the Tony Robbins conference Unleash the Power Within. But what's up with all these Nazi's on the rise from high school to video games- how can we stop this madness? Does Jaden Smith have a boyfriend- and is he being a TERRIBLE boyfriend? One of the wonder twins' face can be seen on ads, and billboards around New York State- get covered ya'll! In the main event James takes a look at the life of visionary Stan Lee, who recently passed away, who was an advocate for civil rights and equality as shown through his diverse comic book characters, empowering folks of all different backgrounds, genders, sexualities, and beyond all around the world. Continuing on the celebration train, Nnekay is here to tell us about how dope Sam Esmail is in his diversity in casting in Homecoming with Julia Roberts on Amazon Prime and Mr. Robot. Phew! It's a whole lot of episode so get ready for the fun!
