Hola, to all our loyal listening compatriots!  Check out the latest episode of Afronerd Radio's Grindhouse show airing this Saturday at 6pm eastern.  For those intimately familiar with our Grindhouse broadcast, it is essentially a sonic version of a cinematic double feature with Comic Shoppe as the opening act and Afronerd Radio for the final epilogue starting at 7pm.  Join Daryll B., Dburt and Capt. Kirk for the Comic Shoppe segment when they address the following pulp flavored issues:  Daryll's take on last week's release of Guardians of the Galaxy film; and conversely Dburt waxes on the New TMNT film; Daryll McDaniels of the legendary hip hop group RUN_DMC promotes a new comic book venture at the Boston Comic Con; the crew finally unpacks on the recent Esquire blog piece entitled, "Are Black Superheroes  Good for Black People?"; highlighting the Black panels at last week's SDCC; Zack Snyder defends Aquaman on a Detroit radio show and lastly, a new Black themed book alert-Top Cow's Genius releases issue #2 next week.  Call the hosts live at 646-915-9620.

And then there's Afronerd Radio batting "clean up" at 7pm.  Join Dburt and Capt. Kirk as they analyze the following topics: is a Change.org petition challenging music artists and record companies to stop degrading Black people/culture a strong enough tactic? Why not a class action suit? a recent USATODAY piece puts the focus on a booming tech economy that is allegedly fueling an urban renaissance.  The question remains-how can Blacks and Latinos take advantage of this especially if it's occurring within or adjacent to their neighborhoods? ; hip hop artist, Busta Rhymes' new  "swagger wagon commercial causes a stir on Black Twitter and The Root critiques a new app called the "Sketch Factor.
