Check out the latest episode of Afronerd Radio's Grindhouse-airing this Sunday at 6pm ET.  Join your favorite podcast Stranger Things' crew (the Uncanny Daryll B., left coast correspondent, Claire Lanay, Capt. Kirk and Dburt) as they wax about this week's pulp/pop topics: more heads are rolling and projects reassessed in the wake of the Weinsten sex scandal fallout (i.e. Kevin Spacey, George Takei, Louie CK, Mariah Carey,  Andrew Kreisberg, DC editor Eddie Berganza, etc); more on Thor: Ragnarok's box office success; Justice League reviews are coming in as the 11/17 premiere date approaches; more of our impressions regarding a potential Disney-FOX merger;  Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman) appears to be using her new found (super) power to have another alleged sex scandal perp, director/producer, Brett Ratner ousted from an on track Wonder Woman sequel; noted author, Leonard Chang (The Lockpicker) in a recent Bustle.com piece shared his experiences with editor rejection letters for his novel based on his characters not being "Asian enough" (yep, that appears to be a common theme with minorities); and dovetailing off of the Chang topic, Dburt addresses a similar topic-a Youtube channel (Diversity & Comics) devoted to critiquing what is preceived to be an SJW agenda in comic book storytelling; while Chadwick Boseman asserts that his African accent in the upcoming Black Panther was an intentional eschewing of White supremacy, his cast mate, Lupita Nyong'o wasn't so lucky with her recent Grazia UK magazine cover;  The Root discusses Hollywood's erasure of Blacks and POC from the sci-fi and fantasy genre; And lastly, what about that Agents of Shield S5 trailer?  Call LIVE at 646-915-9620.
