    06/08/2021 Duración: 01h22min

    Samantha Nzessi is back - which is good because we need to break down all this sexism that is raging in our faces. From the outfits they make women wear in sports, to letting Simone Biles take care of her mental health to do what she needs to do, and in the entertainment world Scar Jo vs. Disney. In the main korner it is a news story that is the blend of classism and privilege, and racism and homophobia all intersecting in the conviction of Ed Buck murderer of Queer Black men. Samantha as usual sends us through a deep dive of the fuckery of Hip-Hop, which we love, but need to callout and this time it’s DeBaby and his comments and views of our beloved Lil Nas X who is challenging us all of our own fears and insecurities. GUEST CO-HOST: Samantha Nzessi is a third-culture linguaphile who cohosts MASKulinity Podcast, a show that’s now part of a healthy masculinities podcast network hosted by NextGenMen.

    Bruce is Back! But before the fun, the Pon De Replay is still raging- and at this point 1 of 3 things will happen to everyone when all is said and done. We saw a Quiet Place II which is great, except for one specific group of people. We gush about Black Widow and a theory we have about the character. DCEU is pumping out so much Black superheroness but is this STILL a distraction from Ray Fisher/Cyborg? In the main Korners it’s an Oprah/Minority Korner Book Club with “What Happened to You?” an examination and healing of our trauma, and James’ experience with the book, and why you need to get it! Then Bruce has us hop on the Nostalgia Express: through GI Joe, Masters of the Universe, Transformers, and more, and his theory as to why fanboys get so irate when people change up their IP aka make them less male and white. GUEST CO-HOST: Bruce Wooden – Known to VR enthusiasts as Cymatic Bruce, dance game enthusiasts as Bruce Leroy, and BJ to his family, Bruce Wooden is an educator, competitive gamer, VR evangelist, s

In the main Korner we James leads us through a deep dive surrounding the wave of racism in UK football, but is this nothing new for European football, especially for colonizing countries, and has social media exacerbated the problem? Anti-Blackness is a global phenomenon. MacKenzie abandons her original korner because we need to talk about Jeff Bezos and his penis rocket. Guest Co-Host: MacKenzie Green (she/her)-  Vice President of Social Media for Who What Wear/Clique Brands.

    Ben Randle is back to help us celebrate and reflect on Pride month! But first the transition to post pandemy life seems to have it’s own set of challenges. Apparently there will be no Gay Love Island because we are a ‘logistical difficulty’... really?!?! We set out to solve immigration... or at least debate Vice President Kamala Harris’ trip to Guatemala that has both folks on the right and left upset, but are they both missing the facts? Or is the administration not taking the full historical nature of the US’s devastation of South & Central America into full account? As we prepare to celebrate the uprising that started it all we dive into 8 uprisings that happened BEFORE Stonewall!
