Greetings, folks! Let's make this a real attempt at brevity! Welcome to a new episode of Afronerd Radio's Mid Week in Review podcast, airing this Wednesday at 7:30pm EST. Check out the latest musings of your favorite podcast superhero team as they decipher the most current event laden and topical "codes": our impressions of rap artist, Macklemore's new single entitled, "White Privilege" as well as his commentary on race relations in the U.S.; Dburt connects the dots between an interesting anecdote that was revealed during famed comedian/director, Keenen Ivory Wayans' geneological search on Finding Your Roots and the media's most recent Oscars debate; on the blerd front, filmmaker, Kevin Smith intimated that DC may be channeling more from Marvel than one would think relating to the possible comingling of their TV and film IPs.
Democratic presidential hopeful, Bernie Sanders seemingly dodges the slavery reparations question; Harvard reserachers embark on a "moonshot challenge" thanks to 28 Million in funding to attempt to map an A.I. brain like the neural connectors of a human cerebrum; with news from Sundance regarding Don Cheadle's Miles Davis biopic and actor Nate Parker's Birth of a Nation film, does the cure for the Oscar dilemma lie with Black folks producing films beyond hackneyed rom-coms?; why exactly did B.o.B. rapper debate the astrophyscist, Dr. Neil Degrasse Tyson over the "world being flat?" Hopefully, comedienne, Sherri Shephard was listening in as well. And again, speaking of Sundance, we weigh in on a new Blerd centric film entitled, Sleight. Call the hosts live at 646-915-9620.
