It's about to get real emotional and philosophical up in here as these two water signs jump into it. In the guest cohost spot from the MASkulinity Podcast we have Samantha Nzessi. Remember that governor who you thought was racist well it turns out his wife just might have him beat with her own flavor of racism. We discuss what is truth these days, do we care about facts- which leads us into a conversation about Jussie Smulllet- what the fuck happened!? Finding Neverland documentary, yikes, is this the end to Michael Jackson? We canceled R. Kelly after the 'Surviving R. Kelly' doc, are we willing to do the same to the King of Pop? First Black Oscar winner Hattie McDonald was a controversial figure in her time and still to this day. James dives into the history of this controversial figure, her history, and who she really was. You think you know... but you don't know! Is Steve Harvey yucking Monique's yum. Samantha takes us on a tour in a conversation around her podcasts main premise of masculinity. What is masculinity in our culture? What does it mean to be a man? How did we get to Trump? Where do we go with dealing with the culture of masculinity? Plus James saw Green Book- and he has notes- Samantha did not see it- and still has notes... just who was this fantasy reconstructing of racism for?

Join the original rowdy boys on a quest to hold off the apocalypse — again — by confronting a deity whose machinations are too sinister to truly behold. Or, maybe, he really just wants to throw a bangin’ party. One of the two.

Moujan Zolfaghari (Mission to Zyxx) joins Jordan and Jesse for a discussion of the cats, Pancake and Zen, who she is cat-sitting for at the moment and their complex family situation, the new genre of fanfiction where you just write stories where you are friends with the people in pop culture you want to hang out with, and the improv or sketch show that everyone saw that opened their mind to the idea that comedy can be elevated or artful or cool. Plus, we reveal how many people in our audience are named Bronson!

This week we want to hear from people who own fezes! Let us know if you own a fez and send in your hot fez pics! Email us at jjgo@maximumfun.org or call us at 206-984-4FUN.

Are there more people in the JJGo audience who own a fez or who have been on Jeopardy!?

MK168: Literally in a Korner w/ Teresa Attridge (Reparations, Model Minority, Marie Kondo, Desexualization of Asian Men/Over Sexualization of Asian Women, Avenue Q, Interracial Relationships)

Teresa Attridge

This week we are literally recording in a korner! We have actress Teresa Attridge stepping into the guest co host spot while Nnekay is still out on maternity leave, and as our first Asian American guest (sorry it took so long)  we have so much to talk about! Is it time to rethink Avenue Q? Is it dated? Is everyone REALLY a bit racist? Terasa weighs in on interracial relationships and how she's navigated it. Also, she breaks down the model minority myth, it’s history where it came from along with the desexualization of Asian men, and over sexualization of Asian women. She shares her theories on how those in power weaponize our differences against each other, why younger Asian Americans are drawn towards black/hip hop culture, the Black/Asian divide, and so much more! Plus we get her thoughts on Marie Kondo. But first I dive into the case for Reparations: It’s about fucking time ya’ll and we could be the generation to do it!  I break down it's history, precedents of it happening before inside the US and out, the continued growing wealth gap, what it might look like, and why it is so necessary if we are ever going to have true healing in America.
