Minority Korner

Nnekay is still here, she's still in New York! James is showing her the sights! World Trade Center Monument, The High Line, The Stonewall Inn, a... bone... mall? Also James is excited to share his mutant power, which might not get him accepted into Professor X's institute. Did you know Madonna dated Tupac? The wonder twins discuss. Did you know that DeMario Jackson (from Bachelor in Paradise) asked Britney Spears out? James got to experience the fabulous Phylicia Rashad... sleep for most of the play? In James's Korner, we're discussing a tough topic (Trigger Warning). With the recent suicide of Chester Bennington of Linkin Park, James dives into one of the causes he was incredibly vocal about: Child Molestation. James breaks down some of the statistics from the website Darkness to Light, to squash a lot of the misconceptions that are spread. Also, James shares some tactics on how to protect those children that surround us. Next up! We try something new with a Super Soul Sunday. With all the intense conversations and whirlwind recording, we take a page from Oprah's book and discuss self worth, shared histories, race, and gentrification.

Ross and Carrie Are Information: Dream Reality Cinema Edition

| 0 comments

We wish we could tell you exactly what we do in this episode, but we're not even sure. It all starts with us finding a coupon for "dream therapy," a treatment where you sit in a recliner in Beverly Hills and are put into a half-sleep state for an hour so that you can get all the benefits of meditation and dreaming, while a guy (or gal) says vaguely scientific things in your ear. What benefits, you ask? We're not sure. And they don't seem sure, either. But here's one thing we know: it costs $80.

NEW EPISODE! Jai guru, mofos. In this episode, Ross and Carrie immerse themselves in the Self Realization Fellowship, Paramahansa Yogananda's eastern-inspired religion that urges little eating, little sleeping, and lots of meditation. Can Carrie and Ross survive in a group where "restlessness of mind" is a cardinal sin?
