Let's just dig in, shall we?  Check out our latest MWIR (Mid Week in Review) podcast engineered by the good folks at Afronerd Radio Machine Works, airing this Wednesday at 7:30pm EST.  Join your hosts, Dburt and Capt. Kirk as they decode the following (mid) week issues:  a recent study from the Corporation of Enterprise Development posits that it could take 228 years for the African-American community to catch up and/or amass the same wealth as their White counterparts; an extended Netflix Luke Cage trailer hits the cyberwebs as we inch closer to its Sept. 30th premiere date; another spate of possible police misconduct cases seep into the public's consciousness (the death of a young suburban Baltimore mother and the wounding of her child; a video of a young Black woman calling the police on the police goes viral and the death of an unarmed Chicago car thief raises the ire of the local community); Black female Olympians vy for the gold in Rio. And lastly, a recent Atlantic article provides an excellent historical synopsis of the origins of the American White underclass and by extension "White Trash" culture (hat tip: Bison).  Call the hosts live at 646-915-9620.
