Howdy, from the crew of the Starship: Afronerd!  Listen to the latest meanderings of your favorite podcast Ultimate Avengers (Claire Lanay, Dburt, Capt. Kirk and the Uncanny Daryll B) this Saturday at 6pm eastern-courtesy of Afronerd Radio's Grindhouse.  The topics for this sonic buffet are:  comedian, Hari Kondabolu tackles the need for accurate representation while debunking Indian-American stereotypes with his TruTV doc, The Problem with Apu; in "further evidence that Skynet is unavoidable" news, Facebook positioned two A.I. computers together in a conversation during deep learning experiment and they developed a language incomprehensible to humans;  a recent issue of Suicide Squad has garnered controversy about whether Batman can be classified as a "meta-human" ;  and in truly Hollywood fashion, the WB may be angling Wonder Woman for Oscar consideration; Supergirl actor, Jeremy Jordan (Winn) causes a twitter stir with LGBTQ by joking that Supergirl and Lena Luthor would not be sapphically shipped;  with more heat being levied against the GOT writers of Confederate, a piece from The Root provides alternative TV treatments; MIT PHD candidate (and Blerd no doubt), John Urschel opts out of the NFL probably due to CTE risks (acronyms for everyone!!) ;  do the SDCC '17 Captain Marvel revelations imply a different direction for the MCU post phase 4?; is Marvel bereft of ideas with its upcoming 1,000,000 BC crossover event storyline? And lastly, atheism appears to have won out in the new Star Trek: Discovery series as the word "god" has been banned! (Mr. Roddenberry would be proud).  Call the hosts live at 646-915-9620!
