We welcome back Ben Randle to the Korner, as it’s technically his second time back but due to some traveling and a technology mixup years ago, this is the first time you listeners are going to be entreated to his brilliance! It’s a Minority Korner Homecoming, for James and guest co-host Ben Randle as they sit in the very theater in San Francisco, at New Conservatory Theater Center where their friendship first started as they went on to work with each other, live with each other, and have super soul conversations together.  Ben is fresh off the heels of winning the prestigious Drama League Fellowship- next stop broadway. With Ben around, it's a politics gab sesh, as we dive into a deep dive into the current political landscape. Ben leads an eye opening conversation on how the very visible Democrats on twitter are not the same as the democrats in the electorate, which would account for why we are, and have in the past seen different polls and results than what we might see on our echoey twitter fees and media. James looks into the recent election of Lori Lightfoot, Chicago’s first openly Lesbian Mayor, in this landmark election, it was the Black church that got her elected, but how does this hold up with some of their conservative values? How did this happen? Is this a change in the Black Church (which is not the Black Community as a whole)? Plus Ben says Robyn was the best concert he ever went to, all this and more!  Nnekay's back next week!

Nnekay and James are a splashing around in the giggle pool reminiscing about Nnekay's wild weekend- first a guest spot on the live taping of Judge John Hodgeman at the legendary Castro Theater! Then a baby shower for what James' dubs The Bay Area's Baby! James managed to help plan the shower from across the country because that's what friends are for (Thanks Dionne). Next Up- We got a little incident of trolling going on James' facebook page, mostly surrounding Kamala Harris and her Presidential Bid... by you guessed it- Nnekay. The wonder twins break down what happened and how we got to that point. In the Korners- Nnekay talks about Black People in horror movies. Some good, some bad, some are Candyman. James then helps us all with some tips on how to survive and THRIVE this next Election Cycle of 2020. We also talk Martin Luther King Jr. and Spike Lee.

Dana brings the case against his friend Brendan. Several years ago, Brendan started a Hulk parody twitter account, and he used Dana's real name in the Twitter handle. Brendan says the account is funny; Dana says it's bordering on impersonation. Who's right? Who's wrong?

Thanks to Vernon Maher, who named this week's episode! And thanks to our expert witness Jon Ronson, author of the upcoming book So You've Been Publicly Shamed!
