Halloween might be over, but is this a spook ass episode! But first! We're talking about James' new flirtation with fame! Stacey Abram and her monumental race in Georgia, her celeb supporters and how The View is helping her spread the news about voter suppression. We're also talking about how Kanye might be leaving politics behind... PHEW! In the Korners Nnekay is talking about Trump and his bullshit, this week it's his threat of removing Birthright Citizenship, the 14th Amendment plays into this, what can, and what can't happen. James breaks down the new spread of fascism in Brazil with the election of Jair Bolsonaro- who is blatantly sexist, homophobic, racist, and in favor of dictatorships... that's just the tip of the iceberg. Shutter... Don't forget to vote on the 6th, everyone!!!

12 Monkeys

This week we have the director of the new drama Sadie, Seattle's own Megan Griffiths. The genre film that she has chosen to discuss is Terry Gilliam's weirdo time travel movie 12 Monkeys. Megan and April really get into the ins and outs of working in independent cinema; from the casting to achieving control on set. Megan discusses how she and Terry Gilliam have the similarity of not working within the Hollywood system; Gilliam living in London while Megan lives in Seattle. She elaborates on her new movie Sadie and shooting in a trailer park with Melanie Lynskey. April and she also cover shooting nudity and the need for the actors to be completely comfortable. This is a great conversation that proves you don't have to work within the confines of Hollywood in order to be a successful filmmaker.

Check out the trailer for Sadie which is in theaters now.

And if you haven't seen it yet, go watch 12 Monkeys

With April Wolfe with Megan Griffiths.

**Disclaimer! Nnekay's vocal are slightly off, but the stuff we're talking about is so awesome we couldn't not share this episode**

Nnekay has joined James in Wakanda and feels seen and embraced by the incredible representation of black women in Black Panther! Never fear this little happy dance the Wonder Twins do is Spoiler Free! In fact, Nnekay can't understand how James hasn't spoiled the movie for already. If you haven't seen Black Panther yet, please go see it!! While you're buying your tickets to Black Panther, go buy the soundtrack produced by Kendrick Lamar and how amazing it...but it wouldn't be us unless we side eyed something... and we're doing it with this! Then... we get to Fergie and her jazzy (?) rendition of the National Anthem. PHEW LAWD. Was she taking a protest in vocal form? Is it our fault for trusting Ms. Lovely Lumps herself with the Anthem? Should we even care about the racist Anthem? In Nnekay's Korner she covers the many Hip Artist and Black Athletes who found success in investments and venture capitalism. You might be surprised what many of these artist have been doing since you've heard from him. She covers, Chamillionaire, Nas, Will.i.am, Shaq, MC Hammer, and Snoop Dogg. In James' Korner we've got another Quizlette and this time its all about Slavery. Using his renewed self love and confidence inspired from Black Panther, James felt safe enough to explore "America's Dirty Secret". Nnekay serving as the audience will demonstration that even though we think we know- we do not. How did slavery start? How many lives were lost during the middle passage? Or who started the transatlantic slave trade? Let this korner inspire you, because of you are here because of the amazingness and perseverance of your ancestors.
