Ben Randle

We welcome back Ben Randle to the Korner, as it’s technically his second time back but due to some traveling and a technology mixup years ago, this is the first time you listeners are going to be entreated to his brilliance! It’s a Minority Korner Homecoming, for James and guest co-host Ben Randle as they sit in the very theater in San Francisco, at New Conservatory Theater Center where their friendship first started as they went on to work with each other, live with each other, and have super soul conversations together.  Ben is fresh off the heels of winning the prestigious Drama League Fellowship- next stop broadway. With Ben around, it's a politics gab sesh, as we dive into a deep dive into the current political landscape. Ben leads an eye opening conversation on how the very visible Democrats on twitter are not the same as the democrats in the electorate, which would account for why we are, and have in the past seen different polls and results than what we might see on our echoey twitter fees and media. James looks into the recent election of Lori Lightfoot, Chicago’s first openly Lesbian Mayor, in this landmark election, it was the Black church that got her elected, but how does this hold up with some of their conservative values? How did this happen? Is this a change in the Black Church (which is not the Black Community as a whole)? Plus Ben says Robyn was the best concert he ever went to, all this and more!  Nnekay's back next week!

Reeling from the outrage about Kaepernick's feature in Nike's new campaign, the duo discusses... is Nike doing good or is it more complicated than that?! Also they are dissecting Whitney Houston's documentary, the tragedy that she went through and why we gotta give her more respect. The main korner for the show is Anita Hill, the precursor to the #metoo movement, James breaks down everything we might not know or have forgotten about her story and everything she went through during the confirmation of Clarence Thomas. Also- who's a better actor Whitney Houston or Halle Berry?
