We are passing the baton as we enter in a new era of Minority Korner! We have our new co-host Glory Mora jumping into the fold as we review our two hottest Korners of the past 100 episodes! James and Glory discuss their halloween costumes: Kitty man, and... Pilgrim lady... is Glory Selena or a Pilgrim? Was Glory a model for the House of Dereon? She seems to know a lot about Tina Knowles' design house. Glory also seems hell bent on proving that the center divides in streets are not only called meridian's.. but malls... fact check please! The debate is on whether or not Charmed was... a good show worthy of a cult classic, as Glory does a Charmed rewatch- James and Glory's first debate takes place. Are the Black Buffy/Charmed reboots a good idea? We dig into the archives and bring out two of our BEST korners from the past 100 episodes. First up, remember when James walked us through Disneyland's racist rides. For example do you know the racist movie Splash Mountain is based on? Song of the South, which gave us complicated songs like Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah, and characters like Uncle Remus. James breaks it down! Keeping on the Disney track we celebrate Nnekay's expose on Marry Poppins and the racist undertones. Get ready to have your childhood bubble burst! Here's to the next 200 episodes!

The Pop Rocket Seal of Approval

Before registered parliamentarian Guy Branum takes an extended leave for some much-needed relaxation at home and abroad, the panelists came together to consider, once again, whether they would be able to award the first-ever Pop Rocket Seal of Approval.

Without an acting Nominating Committee Head to sift through listener suggestions on Facebook and Twitter, this time the panel decided to consider the names of only the most committed Pop Rocket listeners--those who cared enough about voting that they called in to make their case. One listener even called TWICE.

Special thanks must go to everyone who called in. Your grassroots efforts to influence the panelists worked. Names that might have been dismissed out of hand if merely tweeted, were taken much more seriously.

So, who will get to update their IMDB page awards section with a Pop Rocket Seal of Approval win? And might this episode feature a DOUBLE nomination? It might!

Here is the full list of names submitted to the panel for consideration. They are listed in the order their calls were received: Tina Turner, Kristen Bell, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Kelly Clarkson, Robyn, Carly Rae Jepsen, Angela Lansbury, and Terry Crews.

So who is the first-ever PRSOA recipient? You’ll find out.

Jam Abouts = All Abouts + That's My Jam

Karen - Les Misérables: New York 1987 Original Broadway Cast - One Day More

Wynter - Michael Jackson - Leave Me Alone

Margaret - Willie Nelson - Vote 'Em Out.

Guy is all about the new Chilling Adventures of Sabrina on Netflix, which is darker and sexier than the original show about the half-mortal, half-witch teen Sabrina Spellman.

With Guy Branum, Karen Tongson, Wynter Mitchell-Rohrbaugh, and Margaret Wappler.

Did you know that you can now call and leave voicemails for the show? You can! If you want to comment on an episode, give us any feedback or just call to get advice from a panel member, the number is: (530) 237-4108

Judge John Hodgman Episode 388: Cos-plagiarism

| 0 comments

Samantha brings the case against her sister Vanessa. They regularly do cosplay and attend steampunk conventions together. Several cons ago, Vanessa came up with the idea to use one of Samantha's dresses for a steampunk version of the Stephen King character Carrie. But, she never made the costume. For this year's Steampunk Halloween convention, Samantha wants to use the dress and go as Steampunk Carrie. Vanessa says that since it's her idea, she should be able to do it.

If you want to buy an "I'm With Claudius" t-shirt, as mentioned in the episode, you only have until November 13! Visit the MaxFunStore to get it while you can at MaxFunStore.com!
