Minority Korner

James is back from his holiday in the U.K. and he brings news: In England the hottest ticket in town is... The Bodyguard the Musical AKA a Whitney Houston tribute, and Broadway level it ain't. After this segment Nnekay and James will probably not be allowed to visit London's theater district the West End because of all the shade but James just might be West End bound anyways. We catch up on our Kwanzaa Celebrations. As promised James is delivering just as he teased last year, we are divining into the history of homosexuality in Africa, debunking the myth that it is a thing brought to the continent by white colonizers. Surprise! Africa's always been gay! We get subversive in this controversial Quizlet Korner, where it might be time to breath, think, and put the torches down. Is Vivica A. Fox's ladies only/no gays allowed Vegas show homophobic? Did she apologize? Does she need to? Did J LO beat out Mariah Carey in the battle of NYE performances by actually having a rehearsal? Is Frank Ocean's mom demanding a homophobic gospel singer be removed from her son's new album? Did Black Lives Matter really kidnap and torture a man? Like... Really??? Did James remove his troll from his life? What exactly IS The Bodyguard Musical? All this and more on this week's Minority Korner!

Life Stories with Stephen Tobolowsky

You may best recognize Stephen Tobolowsky from his role as Ned Ryerson in Groundhog Day, but his considerable body of work spans several mediums. He's appeared as a character actor in hundreds of films and television shows, including the HBO series Deadwood, he hosts The Tobolowsky Files podcast, and he's now written a book called The Dangerous Animals Club.

The stories in his podcast and his new book are about his life, but they aren't Hollywood gossip. They're funny, intimate, and often profound recountings of things from his normal life – like falling in love for the first time, being held at gunpoint at the grocery store, and spending Christmas Eve tripping on acid. He joins us to share some of those stories.
