This week kicks off with the wonder twins chatting it up about the wonderful world of the Winter Olympics! The beautiful opening ceremony... which may have or may not have made one of our host bawl like a baby over the unification of North and South Korea. They also touch down on how exactly to feel about Omarosa and her new turn as Celebrity Big Brother participant. Should we feel empathy? Apathy? Anger?! Nnekay also covers a run in with a delivery man who was less than thrilled to see her... how very odd it is to disappoint a person you don't know. Then we get to the main event of the episode! James sits down with New York Times Best Seller James Nowlin the author of The Purposeful Millionaire. Our James has shared some of James Nowlin's "52 Rules to a Better Life of Wealth and Happiness," in previous episodes and now we're getting it straight from the source. How will tips like applying the success formula, making your bed, surrounding yourself with positive people, releasing your own self worth, and waking up early lead you to a better more fulfilling life? How can you overcome obstacles no matter your race, gender, or sexuality? Listen up as James Squared explains and so so much more! Get ready to live a more purposeful life, like a millionaire!

Have we got an action packed episode for you! Fresh off of co-hosting Marvel Studios' Black Panther Red (or shall we say purple) Carpet world premiere, James has your inside scoop from the historic event, where he interviewed the cast! Legends like Angela Bassett, Forest Whittaker, Chadwick Boseman, Lupita N'Yongo, Michael B. Jordan and more! James is also going to reveal how the sausage is made when it comes to live TV. Riding the comic wave Nnekay gives you the history and relationship of Black folks and comics. While Black Panther may have been the first Black superhero to hit the mainstream, he wasn't the first. In preparation for Marvel Studios' Black Panther hitting screens February 16th, James is going to give you a spoiler free: what you need to know about the world of Wakanda, and the award winning actors, and designers bringing forth this amazing film of Afrofuturism; as this film explores a technologically advanced African nation that was untouched by colonialism. The revolution just might be televised! We've got the Black Panther insider tip! Wakanda FOREVER!

Happy Halle Days! We are bringing back Kwanzaa, straight out of the vaults. Why? Because it's some of our best segments, and... we kind of forgot how to do Kwanzaa so we figured you did too for our longtime listeners, and new and fresh info for our newer listeners. But first! James talks about his near death peanut allergy attack through the streets of New York, where his survival instincts kicked in. Kwanzaa came early, Omarosa got the boot! Maybe she'll have a Scrooge like awakening? Get ready to revisit a magical journey as we rediscover and explore Kwanzaa. How well do you know Kwanzaa? We'll take a quiz sponsored by PBS, (that gets really competitive... by James) before diving into it's origins. James talks about it's history, importance, and meanings, and Nnekay will walk you through how you can celebrate this beautiful holiday celebrating African American Awesomeness. Also join Nnekay and James as they plan their Kwanzaa Albums, and future Kwanzaa movies and TV projects. Will they beat out Oprah and Gayle for King and Queen of Kwanzaa? Stay tuned to the very end for James' special announcement! 

Happy Kwanzaa!

No terrorist got James this week! Nnekay went to an avant guard Bill Murray live performance and apparently the hipsters of San Francisco were drunkenly not hear for it. Also did Bill Murray set up an awkwardly racist caricature, pro confederacy moment? Nnekay's got the side eyes ready. The Golden Globes nominations are in and we've been snubbed, and by we, we mean POC's. Still so many white nominations! James is perplexed with all the Black excellence on TV from Queen Sugar, to Atlanta, to She's Gotta Have It, which brings up a great discussion. Spike Lee has updated his 80's classic of a young Black woman who doesn't have her shit together, queerness, sexuality, and feminism. And would She's Gotta Have It be more embraced by the feminist community if it were starring and written by a white woman like Leah Dunham? Let's continue our conversation about PrEP! What is it? How does it work? What is the debate? Why are some for it, and some against it? What is the fear or celebration? And who has access to it? And we have some alarming info about infection rates amongst young folks. Apparently Nnekay is the Chancellor/President of School of Don't Trust A Bitch. Nnekay's got all the tips of what to watch for when on the net, some of what you're reading is paid content known as Native Advertisement, which is growing in our media in crazy ways. Nnekay's got it's origins through advertorials, banner ads, and to sponsored content, and how it's growing, and doesn't seem to be going away. How will this impact our media sources and their credibility? How can you protect yourself when in information land? And Charles sit down or go home!

Ready. Set. Go! James returns from Run Disney weekend, the main event he's been training for over the past 2 months to complete his first 10K... did he?... dun dun dun! While at Disneyland Resort the magic of Disney wore off of James as he discovered 5 racist rides at Disneyland that need some serious side eye, and a makeover. Get ready to have your childhood bubble burst! For example do you know the racist movie Splash Mountain is based on? Song of the South, which gave us complicated songs like Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah, and characters like Uncle Remus. James breaks it down! Up next it's Nnekay's most passionate korner to date! In response to the Made Well campaign Nnekay unpacks how and why Black women's hair in particular is political and is a keen example of intersectionality of Blackness and feminism, along with it's history and protest. Also the debate over Ferris Wheels is waged, and we can neither confirm or deny if this episode will discuss or talk about sex benches.

Hola! We are coming to you from around the globe, as James is in Espana and being unapologetically Black overseas, while spreading the gospel about racism in America like a Paul Revere. James is also working like a bastard, why do they work so hard, training for the Avengers 10K, accidentally joining separatist protests, and making a crazy film that may bring in the Spanish new wave of film making. Meanwhile back in the states, Nnekay has fallen in love with a new dog, and her bitch Zelda might not be having it. Also, maybe British Black actors leading American biopics might not be such a bad idea in terms of overseas appeal, aka John Boyega in Detroit, has found a home in Espana. Then we go to the main event: Writer/Comedian (not Comedienne) Janine Brito! We discuss the haunted Poconos Manner, getting lost in the forest, what to do when your family voted for Trump, why you should turn off Reality TV and do something, what's it like to be a lesbian comedian in LA, and create an idea for embroidered pillows on the go! Also someone please call James' mother, and tell her that he is safe in Europe. All this and more!

We find out what the panel is all about this week, and what jams they are listening to. **PLUS** Guy Branum calls in to tell us about his new show and what show he's all about (*hint* Rita Moreno features heavily in this segment).

Nnekay sets The Facebooks a blaze with a debate: are gay men and black women fierce? Is it time to retire this over used phrase? And "When Dez Nuts Attack" will James survive? This could be the last episode for our Korner kid James, but before he goes he'll tell all about his adventures at his first ever music festival 'Outside Lands', and he's got three words for you: Lionel Mutha Fuckin' Richie... ok that was four. The Olympics are here and it's hella sexy, between the names, the shiftlessness, and the USA Men's Gymnastics team who are 'thirsty' for some attention- it might be too much for James to handle. So we'll switch gears and look over the history of LGBT representation and involvement in the Olympics, as we hit record breaking numbers this year. Nnekay has the low down on a new show being headed by two Black Queens of art and entertainment called Queen Sugar. Led by Ava Devernery, it serves as a rally cry to female directors behind a new project on OWN. Who are these ladies collaborating on a new project, and what's it about? In the Quizlet Korner: is the San Francisco Stud gay bar closing? Do you want some cream with your coffee at potential sexy new cafe in England? What beautiful thing has happened to a survivor of the Pulse nightclub attack? Find out this week on Minority Korner!
