Konichiwa, loyal listeners.  Check out the latest episode of Afronerd Radio's Grindhouse podcast, airing every Wednesday at 7:30pm EST.  Listen to Dburt and Capt. Kirk wax about the latest goings ons in popular/political culture and current events.  The topics up for discussion this (mid) week are:  Dburt remembers the 90's Black Bart Simpson bootleg trinket days and discovers that the selfsame artifacts are actually going for hundreds of dollars (Black folks need to capitalize more on the  "Blackness is cool" factor for future financial gains); famed golfer, Tiger Woods gets caught up in a DUI scandal that appears NOT to be exactly as initially reported (but the damage is done); the Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity, marches in Chicago to bring awareness to the severe gang related killings that currently define Black urban life in the iconic mid-western city; during a recent Sirius Satellite interview, Dr. Ben Carson, the current Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, catches criticism for positing that poverty is  a "state of mind"; more on the Portland, Oregon racial stabbings case that left two people dead; noted HBCU, Dillard University bears the distinction of ranking second in the nation producing Black physics undergrads; a recent article from The Root actually laments the apparent reduction of Black sounding names for the upcoming generation (Dburt rejoices!).  And lastly, more shenanigans with the Trump administration have culminatied in allegations that Senior advisor, Jared Kushner established back channel communications with Russia.  Call the hosts live at 646-915-9620
