James is BACK in the BAY! But sadly the duo aren't in the same room, yet- but that's coming! James had his West Coast debut as a comedian at a cat themed stand up show. The wonder twins talk art history and the majesty of Beyonce and Jay-Z aka The Carters and their new album and the visual richness of the video for Apeshit. Nnekay went to Janelle Monae and has lost all of her damn edges due to the sheer amazingness black female empowerment. The night before James went to Kathy Griffin at the same venue!!! He talks abut her fight against the Trump Administration. In the Korners, Nnekay talks about Romans 13 the bible verse that has been use to give legitimacy to many horrific events in world history- including most recently Jeff Sessions' use of it to plead the case for separating undocumented families. James talks about California's dirty past of trying but (thankfully) failing to ban black people from living in the state.

Jimmy Carter Always Stealing This Show! (Wedding Cakes, Supreme Court, Gentrification, BBQ Becky, Jogger Joe)

Minority Korner

Did you know that June is African American Music Appreciation Month?! Well now you do! The Wonder Twins try with all their might to talk about this, but Jimmy Carter just keeps showing up to steal the show! James needs tips on how to leave a date early and Nnekay has dubbed herself the Date Referee giving tips and calling it when the gig is up! Should James trust a "walk up dentist?" Nnekay says no and tells a tale of caution. In James' Korner he addresses the Supreme Court ruling in favor for Jack Phillips- who refused to bake a wedding cake for a gay couple. What does this mean for the future, what has happened in the past, and how we can stay woke to discrimination with love and respect. Inspired by the recent Oakland, Ca events involving BBQ Becky and Jogger Joe, Nnekay talks gentrification- what and what not to do.
