What's shaking, folks!  Welcome to Afronerd Radio's Mid Week in Review (MWIR) podcast airing every Wednesdat at 7:30pm EST.  Join your hosts, Dburt and Capt. Kirk as they attempt to decipher this (mid) week's latest topics:  Netflix appears to really be on a roll, with the release of a new trailer for a HBCU-Greek letter TV drama series entitled, Burning Sands; we give our impressions of the highlights, soco-political implications and fallout of this past week's broadcast of the Academy Awards in the wake of last year's #OscarSoWhite controversy; "transracial" former president of the NAACP Spokane (WA) chapter, Rachel Dolezal reportedly has hit on hard times; Dburt may finally uses the Dolezal story to discuss Paris Jackson and Negro League executive, Effa Manley; regrettably we may touch upon the "beef" between rappers, Remy Ma and Nicki Minaj only as a backdrop for more serious and insidious issues (i.e Black failure is a business; Hip Hop needs to be closed for business; Black folk MUST divest from regressive entertainment); the new Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos' pronouncement about HBCUs being a "choice" for Black people historically is....well, ahistorical;  a young mother and Instagram comedian, Jess Hilarious causes a stir with her family photo; And lastly, a recent AtlantaBlackStar article, places focus on the resurgence of social pathology arguments for Black community dysfunction at the rise of the Trump administration.  Call the hosts live at 646-915-9620.
