This week Avi Roque (they/them) joins the conversation. We start off with an important discussion about Dave Chappelle and the effect his hurtful actions are having on the Trans community. Maybe he should be listening to this episode right? Next, we talk about the tragedy that happened on the Rust set with the death of Halyna Hutchins. What does this mean for the safety of film sets moving forward? How will people trust this won't happen again? Then in the main Korner Avi gives us an E-D-U-C-A-T-I-O-N on the well known holiday Dia De Los Muertos. We dive into the history of it and what it really means. James and Avi also discuss their heritage and what they`ve learned about themselves in the process and that Grandpa Russell had a lot of kids!

Guest Co-Host: Avi Roque (They/Them) is a Latine, Trans, Nonbinary actor & voice artist. Most recently, you can watch them on Disney’s Animated Series, The Owl House, as the voice behind Nonbinary character, Raine Whispers. Avi is also the narrator of several audiobooks, including New York Time's Best-Seller, Cemetery Boys by Aiden Thomas.
