Also they are dissecting Whitney Houston's documentary, the tragedy that she went through and why we gotta give her more respect. The main korner for the show is Anita Hill, the precursor to the #metoo movement, James breaks down everything we might not know or have forgotten about her story and everything she went through during the confirmation of Clarence Thomas. Also- who's a better actor Whitney Houston or Halle Berry?

Minority Korner

The Wonder Twins of Podcast break down the late nineties teen group Cleopatra. James has had a an epiphany that he's a Dinah Lohan, just supporting and boosting (and sharing) the talent and success. Nnekay has a glamour tryst in gold country, and discovers a little thing called pretty privilege as introduced by Janet Mock. Get ready to clutch your pearls because James might not be familiar with a Super Star from RuPaul's Drag Race. In Nnekay's Korner, she covers how Climate Change and Race are connected through a study that was conducted by researchers from UC Berkeley and Princeton. As the temperature rises, so does the divide the wealth. In James' Korner, he is here to give an audio pamphlet for straight guys navigating gay bars. He knows they're coming, might as well give them some guidelines so everyone can have a fun time and let gay bars remain a space space for who they were created for.
