The Best There Is

I should be ashamed that I am just writing a review. I have been a listener of Minority Korner for a little over 2 years and they never disappoint. I’m so in tuned to this podcast that I feel like James and Nnekay are my personal friends and I could text them, even though that’s not true, I can still pretend. 😂 I love the work they put into the show and I always learn something new whether it’s from quizlets or discussions about politics, pop culture, or any current thing going on in the world. My favorite part of course is their alliance with and for the LGBTQA community as I apart. We need more people and shows in the world like Minority Korner, thank you so much!

Love this podcast and everything these two amazing people stand for! So excited when I see a knew episode pop up on my feed! It’s a bright ray of sunshine in this frigid polar vortex in west Oklahoma 💜
