Hello Cool Kids! We have a super fun (and a kind of terrifying!) episode of you today! First, Nintendo released a teaser trailer for their new console, the Nintendo Switch! America was the target of 3 waves of cyber attacks on Friday and so far, there's not really much we can do to prevent another attack. Special guest Dave Bulmer (@DemonTomatoDave) joins Brent to discuss the American election season from a British point of view and how it is similar to Brexit. All that, plus the Wi-Five of the Week! Enjoy and remember to share!
When an old friend of Dr. Crusher's bails on their plans, she thinks he might have fallen on the ship and can't get up. But as her story begins to unravel, squints of suspicion abound from an unbelieving (and shrinking) Enterprise crew. How difficult is a three-finger handshake? Are scarves a good substitute for grass? How old is your oldest friend? It's the episode that came back from the dead!
Josie Long, Mike Wozniak, Tom Crowley and Martin Austwick join in for this month’s episode, which was recorded live in front of an audience at the London Agriculture Festival.

Hello Internet! Well, you've finally reached that age and it is time for you to debut! How do you debut you ask? Well, have you taken you dance classes? What about your etiquette classes? Have you reached "maturity"? You see, DEBUTANTE BALLS and COTILLIONS are all about entering society. Lord Byron referred to them as "marriage marts" and he wasn't far off! We'll give you the history of balls and cotillions and we'll even give you a play by play of a modern day ball! Enjoy and don't forget to share!
Due to some personal tragedy and trauma, we don't have a full NEW episode but we have Frankenstein'd the FUCK out of our old one's for our "Greatest Hits"! But first Nnekay has designed our first ever Minority Korner Syllabus giving you some fresh reads this week on Queer History, Latino History, and most importantly... Marvel's Luke Cage! For those who've listened to segments from parts of past episodes (although why not just listen to the whole damn thing) we've broken down the times for each segment.
11:45- From Episode 6, We crack the case on the infamous "mandingo" that was supposedly terrorizing a university, and uncover the real villain in a case of a population being infected with HIV, and the stigma that HIV positive folks still face today, sometimes even legally.
34:40, From Episode 13, 'Slave Tetris'. Slave Trade the video game exists... and the creator is hell bent on trying to convince you this game is a great idea and necessary.
48:05, From Episode 6, Our favorite Quizlet Korner about Joe Biden, and most importantly Gretta Garbo and some crazy shit that had Nnekay in amazement. It doesn't take Scooby Doo to uncover the mystery of Nosfaratu, just Nnekay.
53:30, From Episode 5, The gloves are off as Nnekay and James come head to head over a glass (or two) of wine, and Nikola Tesla.
1:03:15, From Episode 4, A woman has a very unlucky day, pregnant, lost in the woods, surrounded by bees, and may have started a fire... she's a regular Amelia Bedelia.

Amber's No Good, Terrible, Bad Day, Giving Birth, Chased by Bees, and Started a Forest Fire story:
Biz and Theresa explore how we try to change gears when we're stuck in a funk. “I know I am supposed to be enjoying this moment…why can’t I get out of my funk and enjoy it?” Is it the guilt, is it the need to carry every emotional triumph or difficulty around till we get recognized for it, or do we just need to be nicer to ourselves when a day is turned upside down by a toddler tantrum? It may be some of everything. Plus, Biz has an ant problem, Theresa has bunk beds, and we talk to drag superstar Tempest DuJour about adoption, trusting yourself, and fostering diversity in our homes and communities.
