The Witch

(L to R) April Wolfe, Issa López, Mattie Do

Recorded LIVE at Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas, this show has a little bit of everything - special guests, witchcraft, and a stuffed animal version of Black Phillip. Mattie Do, Laos's first, and only, female film director, is our special guest. And she's on the show to talk about 2015's The Witch. She details her own personal connection to magic and witchcraft, and how this film influenced the look and feel of her own horror-folk film, The Long Walk. She and April are also joined by Tigers Are Not Afraid director Issa López to help decide which member of the audience gets to sell their soul to the devil.

You can see Mattie's film The Long Walk on the film festival circuit.

You can see Issa's film Tigers Are Not Afraid on Shudder.

And if you haven't seen The Witch, you simply must!

With April Wolfe, Mattie Do, and Issa López .

Minority Korner 40:Not Live From The RNC (RNC, #LoudBlackGirls, White on White Crime, Myth Busting Gender Stereotypes, The Witch, Leslie Jones, Melania Trump)

Minority Korner

We are not reporting from the RNC- because that would be dangerous for us. We are still internationally recording, and James has a bird's eye view of all the crazy Republican politics, safely from Europe. Let's talk about the terrifying circus that is the Republican National Convention. Nnekay speaks about a hashtag near and dear to her heart #LoudBlackGirls, and it's celebration, and empowerment of Black women to be themselves. James is going to myth bust some gender and race stereotypes, and we need to have a very important conversation about white on white crime. This week's Quizlet Korner might actually be legit. Did Stevie Wonder go crazy at a concert? Is Grand Theft Auto taking place at a Pride Parade? Are Homosexuals lacing fireworks with chemtrails to turn everyone gay?! Find out!
