Well, it's week two, post election and unrequited issues and feelings are still very much with us. Welcome to another fact finding mission and discourse, courtesy of Afronerd Radio's Mid Week in Review (MWIR) podcast, airing this Wednesday at 7:30pm EST. Listen to your hosts, Dburt and Capt. Kirk as they attempt to make sense of this week's ever festering concerns and issues: the Captain and Dburt bounce around some of the ancillary phenomena attached to the formation of the Trump administration (meeting Preisdent Obama, former Breitbart CEO, and alleged White Nationalist, Stephen Bannon named as chief POTUS advisor, talking to Vladimir Putin, getting rid of the Electoral Collge,etc); veteran PBS journalist, Gwen Ifill succumbs to endometrial cancer at the age of 61; in the wake of President-elect Donald Trump's ascendency to the White House, more Anti-Trump protests and racial hate cases/crimes appear to be spreading in tandem across the country (West Virginia mayor and offical are fired for "ape" comments levied toward First Lady Michelle Obama) ; Dburt theorizes that not only is a BLEXIT (Black Exit..think BREXIT) necessary but also revitilized Black Power Movement with a distinct purpose and expectations; Dave Chappelle's return to TV was as spectacular and funny as one could expect-our review of his recent SNL appearance; Canadians (playfully?) on social media invite residents of California, Oregon and Washington to secede in the Trump aftermath; And on the comic front-a Vulture piece gives further credence to comic book legend, Steve Ditko (creator of Dr Strange) being the pulp version of Greta Garbo. And lastly, Image Comics releases a new graphic novel with a Black female protagonist, entitled Motor Crush. Call the hosts live at 646-915-9620.
