#34: 'Radical Mundane Blackness'

This week, Cher and James discuss the blended lines of race and gender online, including Tumblr mentality, POCs using racial slurs, and the lack of mediocrity allowed online. In Open Call, Cher talks about a recent addition to the Apple Music library, and James talks about a certain presidential campaign.
