Hey, folks! Finally, the weather is actually starting to feel like summer as temperatures in NYC breach 90 degrees for the next few days! So before you bask in the heat, why not check out the latest musings of Dburt and Capt. Kirk-courtesy of Afronerd Radio's Mid Week in Review (MWIR) podcast. For the uninitiated, the Mid Week in Review airs Wednesdays at 7:30pm EST. The topics up for discussion this (mid) week are: try as we might, the tream discuss the latest missteps alleged to have been made by the Trump Administration thus far (the firing of FBI director, James Comey; Trump releasing classified information to the Russians; allegations of obstruction of justice, etc) ; we revist a few issues that we failed to cover due to last week's preemption-singer/actress, Miley Cyrus critiques hip hop culture after channeling the "ratchet aesthetic for her last album and Black social media rages; a White Louisiana substitute teacher stirs controversy with his use of the n-word with a student claiming the word has been "commoditized" and has lost its meaning (hmmm??); two Black beauty queens test the bounderies of acceptable Blackness (Miss Black University of Texas is allegedly not "Black enough" and the newly crowned Miss USA's political opinion might fail the Black test as well); a Chicago based Black collective called Ujimaa Medics (Umedics), teach bystanders how to treat bullet wounds during what appears to be normalized and expected shooting occurrences; And lastly a White Michigan police officer takes a DNA test and discovers that he is 18% African and sues his precinct for subsequent racial discrimination by fellow officers and superiors. Call the hosts LIVE at 646-915-9620.
