Minority Korner

Welcome to the Boobie Bonanza aka Minority Korner, where James and Nnekay might just have figured out their new tag line? Do you like? James breaks down his trip to Virginia, the expected and the unexpected and came back with a souvenir... a farmer's tan! The duo discusses potentially doing a radio play and from there we get into... James's Korner. James' discusses his ongoing struggles with anxiety and decides to unpack what he's going through and shares some of the tools he's been using to help him cope. He discusses The Anxiety Podcast, Deep Breathing, and Juggling? Using The Artist Way, James has been and encourages listeners to participate in a Reading Deprivation Exercise and general unplugging to reconnect with their bodies. Also don't forget to Play! In Nnekay's Korner, she's been hearing a bunch of negative news especially surrounding black women and black people in unexpected careers including, John Ridley's omission of black women in his most recent miniseries, how ABC almost didn't want to cast a black woman in the lead of Scandal, and the neglect of praise for great black architect Paul Revere Williams. So to combat these stories, Nnekay has decided to introduce the audience to four amazing Black Women Mathematicians. In Quizlet Korner, James' goes completely off the grid and gives Nnekay questions that pertain too but aren't limited too: Plantations, Betsy Devos, Raven Simone, and Scientology. Phew! Enjoy Everyone!!!

HOW SHOOK ARE YOU?!

Thanks to the Superstar Shake-up, let’s say very!

So many wrestlers have switched shows, including guys who elevated themselves in the last year like The Miz, Kevin Owens, Alexa Bliss, Charlotte and more.

But was this the best thing to do, especially when the brand split is less than a year old? We’ll take a look.

Plus, Braun Strowman flipped over a freakin’ ambulance! With Roman Reigns (supposedly) inside! We’ll talk about that and explain why we’re going to miss Mauro Renallo so much on Smackdown.

Hosted by Danielle Radford, Mike Eagle and Lindsey Kelk.

Produced by Julian Burrell for Maximum Fun.

If you loved hearing Lindsey, go read her books! And check out her videos on YouTube where she asks today’s biggest wrestlers questions from our Facebook group!

The Three Count:

Danielle put over The Webcomic Botched Spot

Lindsey put over Kevin Owens on Talking Smack.

Mike put over Seth Rollins’s promo on RAW.

One Bad Mother
Guests: 
Bryn Huntpalmer

This week on One Bad Mother, Biz and Theresa ponder the stereotype of mothers….not the ethereal, magical vessel image…its the hunched, broken, shell of a person image. Is it avoidable? Is it too late? Or is there some place in between the deep end and the impossible vision of self put upon perfection? We hope that place has snacks. Plus Biz lives her parenting dream, Theresa gives us a window into her world and we talk to Bryn Huntpalmer of the podcast The Birth Hour.
