No terrorist got James this week! Nnekay went to an avant guard Bill Murray live performance and apparently the hipsters of San Francisco were drunkenly not hear for it. Also did Bill Murray set up an awkwardly racist caricature, pro confederacy moment? Nnekay's got the side eyes ready. The Golden Globes nominations are in and we've been snubbed, and by we, we mean POC's. Still so many white nominations! James is perplexed with all the Black excellence on TV from Queen Sugar, to Atlanta, to She's Gotta Have It, which brings up a great discussion. Spike Lee has updated his 80's classic of a young Black woman who doesn't have her shit together, queerness, sexuality, and feminism. And would She's Gotta Have It be more embraced by the feminist community if it were starring and written by a white woman like Leah Dunham? Let's continue our conversation about PrEP! What is it? How does it work? What is the debate? Why are some for it, and some against it? What is the fear or celebration? And who has access to it? And we have some alarming info about infection rates amongst young folks. Apparently Nnekay is the Chancellor/President of School of Don't Trust A Bitch. Nnekay's got all the tips of what to watch for when on the net, some of what you're reading is paid content known as Native Advertisement, which is growing in our media in crazy ways. Nnekay's got it's origins through advertorials, banner ads, and to sponsored content, and how it's growing, and doesn't seem to be going away. How will this impact our media sources and their credibility? How can you protect yourself when in information land? And Charles sit down or go home!

Ready. Set. Go! James returns from Run Disney weekend, the main event he's been training for over the past 2 months to complete his first 10K... did he?... dun dun dun! While at Disneyland Resort the magic of Disney wore off of James as he discovered 5 racist rides at Disneyland that need some serious side eye, and a makeover. Get ready to have your childhood bubble burst! For example do you know the racist movie Splash Mountain is based on? Song of the South, which gave us complicated songs like Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah, and characters like Uncle Remus. James breaks it down! Up next it's Nnekay's most passionate korner to date! In response to the Made Well campaign Nnekay unpacks how and why Black women's hair in particular is political and is a keen example of intersectionality of Blackness and feminism, along with it's history and protest. Also the debate over Ferris Wheels is waged, and we can neither confirm or deny if this episode will discuss or talk about sex benches.

Hola! We are coming to you from around the globe, as James is in Espana and being unapologetically Black overseas, while spreading the gospel about racism in America like a Paul Revere. James is also working like a bastard, why do they work so hard, training for the Avengers 10K, accidentally joining separatist protests, and making a crazy film that may bring in the Spanish new wave of film making. Meanwhile back in the states, Nnekay has fallen in love with a new dog, and her bitch Zelda might not be having it. Also, maybe British Black actors leading American biopics might not be such a bad idea in terms of overseas appeal, aka John Boyega in Detroit, has found a home in Espana. Then we go to the main event: Writer/Comedian (not Comedienne) Janine Brito! We discuss the haunted Poconos Manner, getting lost in the forest, what to do when your family voted for Trump, why you should turn off Reality TV and do something, what's it like to be a lesbian comedian in LA, and create an idea for embroidered pillows on the go! Also someone please call James' mother, and tell her that he is safe in Europe. All this and more!

Hello my sweetest honey bunny money! Happy Summer! Did you know that the female Supreme Court justices are 3 times more likely to be interrupted than their male colleagues? Believe it. Also, a brave Mormon girl comes out in front of her congregation and is shut down by adult men with bad wigs. And finally, Fast Company pop culture editor Joe Berkowitz takes us through his new book AWAY WITH WORDS and the dark world of pun competitions. Now that's what I call purrrfect. Is that a pun?

This week Bryan shares the importance of rehearsed speeches while Erin shares about the Arizona jaywalking epidemic. Also, Theresa May may have lost her Conservative party hold but she’s still sticking around to try and bulldoze through more social safety nets, and the Trump administration still has yet to acknowledge LGBT Pride Month but manages to talk about literally anything else.  Plus guest Dave Holmes is here to discuss Cher’s reggae medley, cheese-themed rating scales, and his book Party of One: A Memoir in 21 Songs.

This week Bryan shares stories from his sister Caroline's visit, while Erin ventured into some casual Veganism. Also, according to a recent study women hold 2/3 of all student loan debt and because of the gender pay gap and Betsy DeVos it’s going to become even harder to pay them off. Plus, at the 43rd G7 summit the world leaders spouses took a group photo and Luxembourg's First Gentleman was failed to be acknowledged in the White Houses Facebook page.

Ding Dong the Witch is dead, goodbye Roger Ailes! This week Bryan found a new love in Disneyland fail videos,  while Erin lost her entire Sunday to “the Keepers” on Netflix. Also, Last Man Standing has been canceled by ABC and conservatives have gone crazy blaming “liberal Hollywood” for it. Plus, curious researchers in Cyprus believe after much research Lesbianism to be an evolutional phenomenon that has occurred only to create arousal in men.

This week hop on the outrage train with a new classic from an ol' fav Susanne Venker and her opus "Most Men Just Want a Woman Who's Nice " and a San Luis Obispo high school special education teacher pens a "gays deserve to die" diatribe to the high school paper and no one is havin' it. Plus, Bryan's BFF from college Stephanie Stenta-James schools you on the Judge Judy fan Facebook page and the time Bryan got his cape stuck. You'll get it when you get it.
