Call in to speak with the host
At the top of the 6pm hour, join Captain Kirk, Daryll B. and Dburt this Sunday for the Comic Shoppe broadcast-the topics on the table are: undoubtedly, more Avengers talk as the film is expected to eclipse a billion dollars in ticket sales...the Newsarama site cites ten classic Avengers' stories that could make for a great sequel; it appears that in the main Marvel comics continuity storyline, courtesy of the Battle Scars limited series, fans get their Sam Jackson inspired Nick Fury after all; revisiting our popular (and rousing) Versus segment, which animated series is the best-Young Justice or JLU? and lastly, Fox's Fringe gets a fifth and final season (including the return of Leonard Nimoy!).
Next up, there's Afronerd Radio airing at 7pm. Captain Kirk and Dburt are summoned on the bridge for yet another mission to unpack the following topics: continuing from Wednesday's Mid Week in Review show, who (and why) is Krispy Kreme? Is it a parody and why aren't his Black contemporaries perceived in the same vein?; an update on Akim Camara, the child violinist/prodigy who gained notoriety in '03 at the age of two for his ability to remember and play music pieces before he could speak beyond baby gibberish; President Obama formally comes out in support of same sex marriage. A so-called enterprising webpreneur, is selling Trayvon Martin gun targets and surprisingly (or may be not so much) requests for his product have caused him to sellout and lastly, why does Hunger Games evoke racist reactions in its fans when the story essentially describes a dystopic future free of racial politics? A Huffington Post blogger waxes on the growing furor over a campaign to cast a man of color for the part of "Finnick" in the second installment of the popular film series.
It's good to talk.
