Happy Thanksgiving Eve, folks! Check out the latest installment of Afronerd Radio's Mid Week in Review (MWIR) podcast airing this Wednesday at 7:30pm EST. Join your hosts, Dburt and Capt. Kirk as they tackle this (mid) week's current issues:  Mr. Andre Cymone-premiere musician/producer, one of the architects of the "Minneapolis Sound," and former bassist and close friend of the late musician, Prince makes his second appearance on the Afronerd Radio Machine. The music legend stops by to discuss not only the tragic passing of his friend, but also his latest musical endeavors and his thoughts about what Black music/culture means in today's current political landscape; unfortunately the cases of racial animus in the wake of Donald Trump's presidential ascendency continue to mount (i.e. an Alt Right gathering vows allegiance to Donald Trump with Nazi references and the preservation of white culture); the cast of the Broadway hit, Hamilton had a few very public words for Vice-president elect, Michael Pence when he attended a recent performance; in a case of fake outrage, a CNN guest used the "n-word" in context but was chastised anyway (really?);  after episode 8 of HBO's Westworld, now fan theories have developed that might further intrigue and confuse the viewer.  And lastly, a Daily Beast piece highlights what it's like to Black and an atheist when Christianity is an intergral part of the African-American tradition.  Call the hosts live at 646-915-9620.
