Well folks it's that time of year AGAIN-Superbowl Weekend!  So while you're frosting your beers and frying your buffalo wings, why not listen to the dolcit tones of Afronerd Radio's Grindhouse podcast-airing this Saturday at 6pm EST.  Join your Podcast "All Winners Squad" (Dburt, Daryll B., Claire Lanay and Capt. Kirk) as they highlight the most recent "going-ons" in pulp/pop culture:  About Comics' publisher and writer, Nat Gertler stops by to not only discuss his independent comic book company (or his Peanuts knowledge) but also his recent reprinting of the segregation era African American travel guide, The Negro Motorist Green Book (circa 1940); NBC's superhero themed sitcom, Powerless premiered this week to mixed reviews; LEGO Batman director, Chris Mckay promises to depict a more diverse Gotham versus the more "monochromatic" version than many fans may be familiar with;  it appears that FOX passed on the Black Lightning pilot only for it to be picked up by the CW (boy is it getting crowded over there); Ben Affleck opts out of directing The Batman, but, of course maintains the acting gig (a petition is up to ensure that Zack Snyder doesn't helm the movie.....seriously); and in casting news, gigs for everybody! (i.e. Kevin Sorbo and Teri Hatcher for Supergirl, Runaways and Cloak Dagger casts are revealed as well as 3 new additions to the Aquaman movie); the teaser for Star Trek: Discovery hits the cyberverse; and while President Trump\s executive order attempts to indirectly ban those of the Islamic faith, Comic Book Resources lends focus to 15 Muslim characters you should know.  And lastly, our impressions of the Tamron Hall/Al Roker vs NBC vs Megyn Kelly debacle.
