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!!!

Coming in strong with the duo discuss what they recently viewed! Nnekays talks about seeing Spike Lee's Blackklansman  move, and James was inspired by Notorious RBG. James also had an interesting experience with a woman in Starbucks... should we yearn for the better days of the 1950s? Nah. What the hell is Melania wearing and what historical implications does it have. Hint: it's not good. Nnekay talks about all the new and exciting Asian and Asian-American actors on Fall TV Premiers. James wants us to Queer the Vote, but highlighting some LGBTQ politicians running this coming November!

We have more pop culture stuffed into this episode than RuPaul has catchphrases. Almost!

This week we sashay our way into the world of RuPaul's Drag Race. We discuss the show's increasing popularity and shed some light on the surprising demographic that has made the show bigger than ever after ten seasons on the air.

Then, we react to the new Deadpool 2 trailer  - Amita's here for the humor and action; Sean's here for the MCU's first openly bisexual hero (and the ensuant fantasies he provokes).

Plus, we preview the new Vanity Fair profile of writer/producer/actor Lena Waithe and discuss what her current success says (or doesn't say) about the future of Hollywood.

And it's a musical Big Sell as Sean sees Amita's Kali Uchis Sell and raises her one Leon Bridges.

The Wonder Twins are back in action! James has just come off the plane from his magical, ridiculous, and confidential trip to Vegas! Some of the things he CAN talk about are: his run in with a Korner Kid, the Divas review, and Britney Spears. Also is Las Vegas LGBTQ friendly? In Nnekay's Korner she combs through The Hollywood Reporter to get you the hot scoop on TV shows in development staring or created by People of Color! Lots of great things coming from Jordan Peele, Gina Rodriguez, and more! James is tackling the Whedonverse and it's creator Joss Whedon. Recently his wife has claimed that his feminism might not be as truthful as he states! James tackles several different points that chip away at his self proclaimed "woke bae-ness". Never fear though, James gives advice to those who still love his work, and the duo talks about how to love the art work of someone you can't help but side eye.
