Did Miss Mary Mack die in that nursery rhyme? Or did James have a dark upbringing? Nnekay investigates! Before we get to the korners we''re talking Stacey Abram giving the response to the State of the Union representing the Democratic Party and what that means for the future of the party. Tessa Thompson is vowing to work for more female directors, and we dig in to a little Celebrity Big Brother and their complicated ass rules. James is leading this episode with a Korner called his State of the Que-Union... see what he did there? He's breaking down the state of affairs for the LGBTQ+ community, including the horrific racism and homophobia that Jussie Smollett endured in Chicago, plus Queer superheroes on the TV screen, will we have our first out gay Presidential contender? What is this new scientific finding, and California law around HIV that is potentially going to change the landscape for those living with the virus?

Nnekay and James are a splashing around in the giggle pool reminiscing about Nnekay's wild weekend- first a guest spot on the live taping of Judge John Hodgeman at the legendary Castro Theater! Then a baby shower for what James' dubs The Bay Area's Baby! James managed to help plan the shower from across the country because that's what friends are for (Thanks Dionne). Next Up- We got a little incident of trolling going on James' facebook page, mostly surrounding Kamala Harris and her Presidential Bid... by you guessed it- Nnekay. The wonder twins break down what happened and how we got to that point. In the Korners- Nnekay talks about Black People in horror movies. Some good, some bad, some are Candyman. James then helps us all with some tips on how to survive and THRIVE this next Election Cycle of 2020. We also talk Martin Luther King Jr. and Spike Lee.

Judge John Hodgman Episode 87: Thanks, But No Pranks

| 5 comments

Patrick brings this week’s dispute against his housemate Wyatt. Patrick and Wyatt were engaged in a spirited neighborhood prank war with other houses on their street. It was all fun and games until Wyatt felt a prank levied against their house went TOO FAR, and he took to social media to bring the conflict to an end. Patrick believes Wyatt overreacted, and he feels the outburst alienated them from their neighbors. Who is right? And should the prank war continue? Only one man can decide.

Bullseye

This week’s case pits friends Lauren and Mike against each other in a battle over social graces. Lauren brings the case against Mike – she claims Mike texts, emails, and updates his social networks when he should be devoting his attention to their conversation. Mike believes performing these tasks while socializing with others is completely appropriate, especially if the offending phone use is for professional purposes. Is it time for Mike to hang up the phone, or is Lauren wrong in prioritizing face time over screen time? Only one man can decide.
