Welcome to the latest edition of Afronerd Radio's Grindhouse (The Comic Shoppe airing at 6pm and Afronerd Radio, thereafter at 7pm) featuring your hosts-Daryll B., Capt. Kirk and Dburt. For the Comic Shoppe segment, the topics to be rousted about are: our thoughts about the recently banned Batgirl variant cover and how the character has been portrayed over the years; the IGN website provides you with their own What If? casting for an Avengers film circa 1985 (think Burt Reynolds as Tony Stark); a recent Comics Alliance piece highlights cartoonist, Ronald Wimberly's lament at being told by an editor to lighten a character of color's skin; our impressions of the CW's comic to TV properties-last Tuesday's Flash episode, the premiere of iZombie and more spinoff talk for the Atom (and others). And lastly, it appears that President Obama's Lilly Ledbetter Act is working because Thor as a woman is selling better than Thor (Odinson)!
Up next, there's Afronerd Radio starting at 7pm. The topics to be grilled on the barbie are: Dburt name checks the theory of "locomotive" (or steamroller) politics relating to the Dolce & Gabbana designer babies issue (incl. the daughter of a same sex couple that doesn't favor gay marriage); a Blasian women becoming Miss Japan causes controversy with some Nipponese folk; highlighting news of a 100m set aside for African tech entrepreneurs with hopes of creating a million jobs in the continent. And lastly, the hosts attempt to discern and dissect the latest racial stories that have hit the scene in the last few days (Mississippi hanging, UVA student beating, Taraji P Henson's son gets profiled, etc). Call the hosts live at 646-915-9620.
