I'm literally typing this post Apes showing, folks!  Anywho, let's get this show (Afronerd Radio's Grindhouse, for the uninitiated) on the road, true believers!  Pull up a seat and listen to the latest musings of your favorite Podcast Command crew of the Deep Space Nine (Daryll B., Capt. Kirk, Claire Lanay and Dburt) airing this Saturday at 6pm EST.  The topics du jour are:  Matt, from the burgeoning new Youtube podcast, WGBS (Weapons Grade Bulls__) stops by to elucidate about his thoughts on the term "blerd" and how its usage might conflict with mainstream nerd culture; picking up from last week's preemption, we finally discuss the latest Marvel (ahem..and Sony) product, Spiderman: Homecoming as it breaches 300m in domestic box office;  and then there's The War for the Planet of the Apes...we give you our impressions; also...was the ADL (Anti-Defamation League) justified in critiquing a line in Jay-z' The Story of OJ for being ant-semitic? (short answer: yes...but with a caveat); the highly anticipated Castlevania premiered on Netflix garnering a quick approval for a season 2; theories (or is it wishful thinking) posit that the sale of Stark Tower in Homecoming might indicate that building will have FOUR new occupants; Overwatch's Doomfist blows up the internet with a fresh animated short; John Singleton returns to the fold with FX' 80s crack era drama, Snowfall; the cast of the forthcoming Black Panther make it to EW's Comic Con preview cover;  And lastly, Ava Duvernay's fantasy POC centric Wrinkle in Time teaser trailer makes it to the interwebs.  Call in LIVE at 646-915-9620.
