Call in to speak with the host
Listen to The Shoppe's Daryll B, Captain Kirk and Dburt as they shed some much need light on this week's following topics: for our infamous Versus segment, let's just keep it simple-Nerds vs Geeks-what's the difference? And on the notable front-who would be identifiable as nerd or a geek? Are both terms still considered pejoratives?; the team revisits their first introductions into comic books and why the genre still resonates with them into adulthood; although hip hop artist, Q-tip once rapped, "Industry rule number 4,080, record company people are shady," industry rule 4081, undoubtedly could apply to some within the comic publishing business. David Brother of The 4thletter blog tackles such a notion in a recent entry for the Comics Alliance site; on the animated side of things, Dburt discovers (in late fashion as usual) Ugly Americans and The Legend of Korra shows and lastly if time permits, a discussion on the proposed film reboots/sequels for The Fantastic Four, Daredevil, New Mutants and X-Men: First Class. Next up, the issues up for grabs on our Afronerd Radio broadcast this time are: Captain Kirk waxes on how he noticed that the NFL draft visuals promote the feel and look of a 21st century slave auction; our thoughts on a recent Jezebel blog piece that centers on the lack diversity apparent in the new HBO hit series, Girls; a married Detroit judge gets caught sexting a colleague with no apologies; a White managing editor at the Black female themed Essence magazine gets shifted to a different division at the mag because of alleged racist and right wing Facebook comments-but were the comments more politically charged than racist?; NY radio merger of Kiss/WBLS, And if there's still time on the proverbial clock, scientists appear to be developing a space boat intended to sail the oceans of Saturn's moon Titan.
It's good to talk.
