This week Nnekay and James are fighting back against the awful memo that was passed around to major agencies in our government about the definition of gender. Before we get to the main event, James and Nnekay wonder... is Halloween still fun? Speaking of Halloween, Megyn Kelly has some questions about costumes as well, specifically Blackface. Let's just say she's WRONG in her opinions. Luke Cage and Iron Fist are getting cancelled, which makes James wonder if Disney has something up it's sleeves- James also elaborates on his newest obsession: DocuDramas! James kicks of the first korner by explaining what this memo is all about, and how it can impact the lives of Transgender and Gender Non Conforming people. James also gives tips on how we can fight back against this hateful ass memo and what we can uplift and support each other. Nnekay takes the baton by giving more tips on self preservation for POC transgender and gender non conforming people. She also gives a trusty dusty list of books that celebrate and lift up the voices of those apart of the community. Also did James manage to get yelled at by George Takei? I think you know the answer.

See James perform at the Broadway Comedy Club, Sat Oct 27th @6pm!

Make your reservation for VIP Tickets: 212-252-2369

We're heading straight to Harlem for this special Luke Cage edition of Inside Pop. We've seen the second season of Marvel's Luke Cage and we're bringing you an exclusive preview of the first two episodes. We'll also provide some fascinating behind the scenes info about the show's music and production crew and theorize why vocal fans of the first season may have inspired the more volatile Season 2 Luke Cage. Plus, we question why we're anti-shipping Mariah and Shades.

Then, Amita reviews the new documentary, Won't You Be My Neighbor, about legendary children's TV host Fred Rogers.

Plus, we have a brand new Big Sell that tackles one of the ugliest, and sadly most prevalent problems in Hollywood.

Fans of Luke Cage will want to check out our interview with showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker.

We look forward and backward and completely nerd out this week!

First up, we recap the latest Game of Thrones episode, "Eastwatch" and look ahead to how these tangled plot lines may play out. Is Cersei Lannister with child? Will Lord Baelish put his little finger between the recently reunited Stark sister act?

Then Amita completely surprises Sean with a Game of Thrones Inside Pop Quiz! Does Sean know a Tully from a Tarly? Can he name all three of Daenerys' dragons? Listen to find out!

Then, in anticipation of this week's premiere of The Defenders on Netflix, we revisit our conversation with Marvel's Luke Cage Creator and Executive Producer Cheo Hodari Coker who discusses his future plans for the Luke Cage character.

And in the Big Sell, Amita shares her reaction to an Afropunk 2017 playlist and she big sells Sean a new song by BOSCO featuring St. Beauty.

Due to some personal tragedy and trauma, we don't have a full NEW episode but we have Frankenstein'd the FUCK out of our old one's for our "Greatest Hits"! But first Nnekay has designed our first ever Minority Korner Syllabus giving you some fresh reads this week on Queer History, Latino History, and most importantly... Marvel's Luke Cage! For those who've listened to segments from parts of past episodes (although why not just listen to the whole damn thing) we've broken down the times for each segment.

11:45- From Episode 6, We crack the case on the infamous "mandingo" that was supposedly terrorizing a university, and uncover the real villain in a case of a population being infected with HIV, and the stigma that HIV positive folks still face today, sometimes even legally.

34:40, From Episode 13, 'Slave Tetris'. Slave Trade the video game exists... and the creator is hell bent on trying to convince you this game is a great idea and necessary.

48:05, From Episode 6, Our favorite Quizlet Korner about Joe Biden, and most importantly Gretta Garbo and some crazy shit that had Nnekay in amazement. It doesn't take Scooby Doo to uncover the mystery of Nosfaratu, just Nnekay.

53:30, From Episode 5, The gloves are off as Nnekay and James come head to head over a glass (or two) of wine, and Nikola Tesla.

1:03:15, From Episode 4, A woman has a very unlucky day, pregnant, lost in the woods, surrounded by bees, and may have started a fire... she's a regular Amelia Bedelia.

1:08:03, From Episode 4, Grand Dragons, The KKK, McSkat Kat

1:15:38, From Episode 4, Extra Chat Korner
