Get ready for some hot winter hot topics! First up the wonder twins react to the the live action remake of Aladdin. James has the inside scoop because he's in the "industry", and is upset, but not because of the reason you think. From there the twins easily go on a Robyn Williams tangent, which brings up the question of just why is Sally Field triggering for James? Will Nnekay entreat us with some live music? James gives his hand at ASMR, could this be a new career for him?  Which actor dominated the box office last year? The sailor gay kiss around the world has conservatives in a TWIST! Do blue characters on kids shows tend to connotate blackness? Did Marvel try to push Iceman back into the closet??? Nnekay has a spoiler free review of Aquaman- it's ridiculous. James watched John Cho's suspense thriller Searching- and it's so good, you've never seen anything like it! Then for the main event we breakdown Gabrielle Union's "Breaking In". We watched it, so you don't have to! The New year, new us continues!

We have united in person for Kwanzaa, and James' Kwanzaa hormones are going! So, it's time to dust out our annual Kwanzaa special, because whether you're a new or longtime listener you may have forgotten how to celebrate! Plus we jump in between the segments to add in some new insights, retrospectives, tangents, and giggles. We'll be there to guide you through our Kwanzaa spectacular! But before we get into the gist of it James has a recommendation of a Black, Queer, Gospel, broadway musical "Choir Boy". The wonder twins also rehash the history of British pop group Cleopatra who were comin' atcha. So first how well do you know Kwanzaa? We'll take a quiz sponsored by PBS. Then we jump back into it and discuss Mowgli on Netflix, which Disney's live action Jungle Book she ain't, and James has impressions to show the difference. We also give tips on how to celebrate Kwanzaa if you're far away from your family. So then we jump back into the special and James talks about it's history, importance, meanings, and walks you through the days, and then Nnekay will walk you through how you can celebrate this beautiful holiday celebrating African American Awesomeness.

We kick things off with a giggle, in a burning search for where is Shanice? We may not have answers but we got questions! James has some info about 90's pop group Ace of Base... and we'll just say you'll never listen to them the same again. James sounds like a party girl but not for the reasons you think- he was off drinking the empowerment kool-aid at the Tony Robbins conference Unleash the Power Within. But what's up with all these Nazi's on the rise from high school to video games- how can we stop this madness? Does Jaden Smith have a boyfriend- and is he being a TERRIBLE boyfriend? One of the wonder twins' face can be seen on ads, and billboards around New York State- get covered ya'll! In the main event James takes a look at the life of visionary Stan Lee, who recently passed away, who was an advocate for civil rights and equality as shown through his diverse comic book characters, empowering folks of all different backgrounds, genders, sexualities, and beyond all around the world. Continuing on the celebration train, Nnekay is here to tell us about how dope Sam Esmail is in his diversity in casting in Homecoming with Julia Roberts on Amazon Prime and Mr. Robot. Phew! It's a whole lot of episode so get ready for the fun!

Who Shot Ya? Episode 55: The Predator and Other Problematic Films with Oliver Wang

Show: 
Who Shot Ya?
Guests: 
Ricky Carmona
Guests: 
April Wolfe
Guests: 
Alonso Duralde
Guests: 
Oliver Wang

We've got Ricky, April and Alonso in the studio this week, along with special guest Oliver Wang. Like Ricky, Oliver is a fellow DJ, and he also hosts the brilliant music podcast Heat Rocks on Maximum Fun, alongside friend of the show Morgan Rhodes.

April tells us about her feminist ghost hunting pilot; Alonso's excited about the BBQ chicken tenders at McDonald's; Oliver is stoked to be a guest for the first time on WSY and Ricky's reminded of his childhood after watching the Canelo fight and going to a party where Los Angeles Plays Itself played in the background.

Plus, music scholar Oliver Wang outs himself as an unabashed Predator fan, who's seen every single Predator movie. Will he be one of the few (only?!) fans of this franchise that doesn't pan the film? Find out.

In the news, Gael Garcia Bernal wants to know why there aren't more US-born LatinX directors, Yacht Captain Dennis Davers breaks his silence about what he thinks happened the night Natalie Woods drowned, and Christopher Nolan and Paul Thomas Anderson have teamed up to demand TV manufacturers up their TV-settings game for better movie watching experiences at home.

Weekly Movie Recommendations:

Ricky - The Thing
April - Life Itself (Note: this is April's joke pick), and her real pick is Mandy
Alonso - Lizzie
Oliver - Chan Is Missing

Next week we're discussing The Sisters Brothers with Inkoo Kang

With April Wolfe, Alonso Duralde, and Ricky Carmona

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!
