It's a family Affair this week on Inside Pop!

We start off with a discussion of our favorite pop culture families - both real and fictional including The Jacksons, The Fischers, The Pearsons and The Knowles Sisters (Beyonce AND Solange).

Then we bring you the second part of our interview with Kat Candler, the producing director of Queen Sugar. We dive into the mid season premiere and illuminate the character development, storylines and memorable scenes from the episode which was directed by film legend Julie Dash (Daughters of the Dust).

Then Amita shares her favorite Tom Petty songs in tribute to the recently deceased singer.

And finally we check in on the Big Sell 30 Day Challenge and discuss how our daily intake of new pop culture is changing our lives for the better. And Sean shares the Big Sell Day 4 of 30 - Middle of Nowhere by Ava DuVernay!

The Fall season is already delivering on its promise of bringing us prestige, platinum perfect pop culture and we're all over it!

First up, Sean reviews the premiere of Star Trek: Discovery while teaching Amita some Trek etiquette in the process.

Then, Amita talks about the special screening of Battle of the Sexes she attended, which has made her a huge fan of one of the legends of tennis (Billie Jean IS her girl!).

Plus, we’re ecstatic to share our interview with Queen Sugar Producing Director, Kat Candler about her work on Ava DuVernay's acclaimed series. Kat discusses the experience of working with an all female directing crew; the job of helping multiple creative visions coalesce into one consistent series; and the indie film vibe that permeates the set. Sadly, Kat refused our pleas to reassure us that Aunt Vi is going to be okay. This is an illuminating discussion on what goes into creating one of the great shows on TV right now and the perfect thing to listen to for Queen Sugar fans (like ourselves) who are excited for the show’s mid season premiere on Tuesday, October 3rd. But have no fear - - our discussion is spoiler free!

Sean also shares details about seeing Queen Sugar on the big screen and the Bordelon siblings in the flesh at the Tribeca TV Festival.

Also, the Big Sell 30 Day Challenge - #BigSell30 - begins October 1st. Listen to hear how you can participate in the pop culture event guaranteed to fill your brain with the very best TV, music, film, comics and more!

And in this week’s Big Sell, Amita rates Haaz Sleiman’s coming out video. For weeks Sean has been unendingly intrigued by the unconventional way the actor (Nurse Jackie, The Visitor) announced his sexuality to the world. But how does Amita feel?

And finally, in the spirit of paying tribute - Amita Big Sells Sean an album by the recently deceased musician Charles Bradley.

This week, we have a spoiler FILLED discussion about the latest episode of Game of Thrones (You've been warned!) Reunions, Deaths (?) and Dragons- oh my!

Plus, we discuss the mid-season finale of one of our favorite shows- Queen Sugar and talk about how the series is taking it up a notch in its 2nd Season.

And we read some listener feedback to our discussion last week about the portrayal of South Asian relationships in Film and TV.

Then, we talk about the lackluster box office for the film Detroit and our thoughts on why audiences may not have embraced the film as expected.

And of course, we have another brand new Big Sell! Sean gives his thoughts on last week's suggestion- the band, The Suffers, and sells Amita on a playlist that features artists from the upcoming AfroPunk music festival.

James Comey- let's hold up before we give this man that ruined the election a parade. The Cosby Ms. Trial- Oy Vey what is up with jury's AND the Philando Castile trial??? Meanwhile another trigger happy cop shot and killed a pregnant Black woman. Elizabeth Banks demonstrates the case for more white feminism, along with Sofia Coppola's latest film that forgets Slavery was a thing back in the confederacy. Beyonce had twins! Phew! Over in the Korner's Nnekay pricks up her feud with JuneTeenth but flips and reverses it, with this way you can truly reclaim this holiday, and some land, as we Black folks still await our 40 acres and a mule. James tackles the controversy of a new Pride flag that was revealed and gives you the history of the flag, along with his two cents. I mean you know him, he's going to give you at least 5 cents. Plus! Queen Sugar has got James WOKE to the Farmer's struggle! Join us for our 2 year anniversary extravaganza!!!

Minority Korner 43: The Rhythm, Olympics, or Queen Sugar is Gonna Get You! (Music Festivals, Olympics, Ava DuVernay, Queen Sugar, LGBT Olympians, Lionel Richie)

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!
