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?

Halloween might be over, but is this a spook ass episode! But first! We're talking about James' new flirtation with fame! Stacey Abram and her monumental race in Georgia, her celeb supporters and how The View is helping her spread the news about voter suppression. We're also talking about how Kanye might be leaving politics behind... PHEW! In the Korners Nnekay is talking about Trump and his bullshit, this week it's his threat of removing Birthright Citizenship, the 14th Amendment plays into this, what can, and what can't happen. James breaks down the new spread of fascism in Brazil with the election of Jair Bolsonaro- who is blatantly sexist, homophobic, racist, and in favor of dictatorships... that's just the tip of the iceberg. Shutter... Don't forget to vote on the 6th, everyone!!!

The Wonder Twins are back in the saddle and ready to break down some more titillating bossip! First They're breaking down James' upcoming show in SF for Pride- Manity Kane (come on thru it will be at Oasis SF) where James will be choreographing a Sailor Moon themed dance to Damaged by Danity Kane! Which brings us to some Dawn and Aubrey O'day Related DRAMA!! Next up they talk about the Royal Weddingggggg and how black excellence CAME THRUUUU. In Nnekay's Korner to celebrate Stacey Abram's historic run for governor of Georgia, Nnekay breaks down the forgotten pioneer Shirley Chisholm- who racked up a bunch of first including the first woman to run for president in the democratic party. In James' korner he gets a question from Max Fun Member, Goldilocks about the Flint, Michigan Water Crisis... which, yea is still going down. He covers how this happened and what we can do about it. You wouldn't believe who made a guest appearance in Scandal in the second season? Hint- It's apart of our Maximum Fun family.
