We got a frown town of an episode for you guys this week- but don't fret! We're still going to bring the entertainment! Both Korners this week are covering things you might not have learned in school- Nnekay is tackling when the US blamed the loss of jobs on Mexicans taking them and started to deport anyone who had Mexican heritage... including US Citizens... sounds familiar....welp this happened during the Great Depression. James is covering the Taino people, their culture, where they existed and thrived before Christopher Columbus and his destructive ass decided to come stopping into town. We also cover Neil DeGrasse Tyson's Sexual Misconduct, Kevin Hart and his racist dated birthday parties, Scarlet Witch getting the short stick, Barbara Lee being scammed against, and the Manhattan Young Democrats loosing it's POC leadership. Let's head into it!

Guests: 
Danielle Radford

Jeff Dye is comedian and star of numerous TV shows like Girl Code and Money From Strangers. He also happens to be a lifelong wrestling fan who’s got tons of thoughts about WWE’s past and present.

That includes things like why he wants WWE to hardly ever turn and why he supports Vince McMahon’s image of a promotion full of giants.

Jeff, Hal and Danielle also break down why Smackdown continues to be so good (especially with its women’s division), why it may have been too early to break up Drew McIntyre and Dolph Ziggler and he’ll even turn Hal and Danielle onto some promising future careers in wrestling.

The Three Count

Jeff put over the promotion Wrestling Pro Wrestling in Burbank.

Danielle put over Rhyno’s career after his apparent retirement.

Hal put over Daniel Bryan’s new catchphrase.

Hosted by Hal Lublin, Danielle Radford and Jeff Dye.

Produced by Julian Burrell for Maximum Fun.

Switchblade Sisters Episode 57: 'Leave Her to Heaven' with 'Dirty John' Showrunner Alexandra Cunningham

Leave Her to Heaven

We've got a truly fascinating conversation on this week's episode with 'Dirty John' showrunner Alexandra Cunningham. Her new show is based upon the wildly popular LA Times true crime podcast of the same name. It deals with deception, seduction, and intrigue. These are all themes found in the film that Alexandra chose to discuss, the 1945 technicolor noir classic Leave Her to Heaven. As 'Dirty John' deals with the mind of a manipulative conman, Alexandra has become somewhat of an expert on the mindset of villains. And she has some enlightening words on Gene Tierney's coldhearted Ellen in Leave Her to Heaven. Alex comes from a playwriting background and explains how she learned to show rather than to tell. April and she dissect the famous drowning scene in the film. And Alex has a fascinating story about working for a suicide hotline, and reveals how sometimes the scariest things happen in the light of day.

Check out Dirty John on Bravo.

And if you haven't seen it yet, go watch Leave Her to Heaven.

With April Wolfe with Alexandra Cunningham.

One Bad Mother
Guests: 
KJ Dell'Antonia

Biz and Theresa ponder the question, “Would we want another parent to tell us if our kid was being not-so-great?” On the flip side, when should we speak up as a truly concerned member of “the village” and when should we trust that the parents already know and just stay out of it? Plus, Biz says something bad, Theresa remembered sleep is good, and we talk to author KJ Dell’Antonia about being a happier parent.

Find out more from KJ Dell'Antonia at KJdellantonia.com or on Twitter @KJDellAntonia. Her book How To Be A Happier Parent: Raising a Family, Having a Life, and Loving (Almost) Every Minute is out now.

To celebrate the 300th episode of The JV Club, JV is joined by Say Hi’s Eric Elbogen! Eric, of course, is the reason for the very existence of The JV Club’s theme song, “Back Before We Were Brittle!” Before some excessive mutual fawning (don’t worry- it’s at the VERY END), Eric and JV talk living rooms, first guitars, and the indignities of class team presentations in this special 300th Episode Non-Boy-of-Summer!
