Our discourse continues.....welcome to the vaunted Grindhouse edition of Afronerd Radio! Double your pleasure...yin versus yang...yada yada yada!  Pull up a seat and listen to The Comic Shoppe at 6pm EST and then Afronerd Radio at 7pm.  It appears that our last few shows were especially festive so as alluded to in the aforementioned opening, our conversation continues...  Join Dburt, Captain Kirk and Daryll B as they (continue to) discuss the following: a number of internet articles are highlighting the lack of Black writers at Marvel and DC (and how the independents put those diversity stats to shame); a recent HuffPost/Black Voices blog posting puts focus on the history of the Black super heroine in comics; David Brothers of Comics Alliance provides an excellent historical timeline of the Black influence in mainstream comics and if time permits, will the quality writing of Green Lantern falter with Geoff Johns' (and his staff) departure from the book?  Call the hosts live at 646-915-9620!

And then there's always Afronerd Radio airing after The Shoppe at 7pm.  Join Captain Kirk and Dburt as they shed light on some recent issues of note: picking up from last week regarding the Grammys; and speaking of music-what's the difference between Lil Wayne and a White rapping Pastor who proclaims that Jesus is his "nigga"....the answer? Not much.;  a doctoral student at  Univ. of Texas discovers a poem from the earliest documented Black published writer in the US, Jupiter Hammon and the racial divide between twitter and Pinterest users.
