Pull up a seat, sip on your favorite summer drink and listen to the sonic nerdom-courtesy of your "Podcast Fantastic Four" (Claire Lanay, Capt. Kirk, Daryll B. and Dburt) during our latest Grindhouse adventure. Tune in this Saturday (powered by the Afronerd Radio machine) at 6pm EST as we wax about the following: trying for round 2, the good folks from the Nigerian based comic book company, Vortex, Inc stop by to not only discuss business but also the burgeoning West African Blerd culture scene; Marvel has orchestrated another beloved character of color's death in a crossover event sequel (of the same name).  Are nerds of color too attached to these characters? Or is Marvel (DC also) too dismissive of their importance?; We have to talk about as it still falls under the topic of pop culture-just what was up with Ayesha Curry's tweet and its subsequent deletion?; rapper/actor Common, has been tapped to play the titular role in a Black Samurai TV series;  with the addition of the Childish Gambino (Donald Glover) to Spiderman: Homecoming, could this Marvel/Sony collab film have the most diverse (and successful) cast since the Fast and Furious franchise movies?;  the CWverse casts two more roles for Arrow and Supergirl;  does the recent CBS/Paramount copyright lawsuit against the Star Trek fan film company Axanar spell doom for the fan film genre as a whole?; and just when we spoke about Battlestar Galactica, now the team that brought you Independence Day would like to revisit the Stargate mythos (pre TV iterations); And lastly, Marvel's Director of Content Development, Sana Amanat made another recent trip to the White House, this time for a Women's History Month event.  Call the hosts live at 646-915-9620.
