Hey!  We're back!  Check out the latest episode of Afronerd Radio's Grindhouse podcast, airing this Saturday at 6pm EST.  Join Dburt, Capt. Kirk and the "Uncanny" Daryll B. as they unfurl the following pop/pulp and political mysteries: Okayplayer.com Managing Editor, Kevin Clark returns to discuss the honesty of Billboard's Top 35 R & B Artists of All Time list; does the cancellation of TNT's live action Teen Titans series represent the saturation point many geeks fear with popular superhero TV translation properties?; as the new Star Wars film tracks to surpass Avatar as the high grossing film (ever!), its director, J.J. Abrams responds to criticism that his film is just a repackaged episode #4-New Hope (and there's a petition for George Lucas' return in the works); our impressions of a skin bleaching ad from Thailand that has gone viral and enraged social media; and in more racism is the new drug news, Maine governor, Paul LePage backtracks on racially tinged remarks he made while addressing his state's growing heroin addiction/trafficking problems; is Beyonce really aiming to make the Hottentot Venus story?; 

Netflix does it AGAIN-discussing the Black 70s period drama enitiled, The Get DownShadow and Act highlights the concept of hyper-tokenism via Lupita Nyongo's Maz character in Star Wars: the Force Awakens.

And lastly, a recent Black Nerd Problems piece waxes about how some perceive Black authenticity by having familiarity with HBO's The Wire.  Call the hosts live at 646-915-9620,
