While we're still "knee deep" into the holiday season, remember to check out the latest episode of Afronerd Radio's Grindhouse podcast-airing this Sunday at 6pm ET.   Listen to your favorite Millennium Falcon crew members (Claire Lanay, Dburt, Daryll B and Capt. Kirk) as they "chop it up" about the following topics: the obvious-our impressions of the eigth installment of the Star Wars saga, The Last Jedi as it approaches 215m in box office receipts; in hip hop news-the Roots' marquee mc, Black Thought does a blistering 10 minute freestyle that not only trended on twitter but reminded hip hop enthusiasts that lyricism is STILL a mainstay within the culture; so after weeks of speculation, media giant Disney buys a large swath of Fox' movie and TV IP empire for a reported 52.4B and the team speculates what that really means (is X-Men: Dark Phoenix released?; job losses in the thousands; TV show cancellations....maybe?; will the government approve?); and in faithful superhero costume live action translation news....pics of Titans' Hawk and Dove hit the net; and channeling the Disney-Fox merger, some fans believe that this means Marvel will get a "darker" skinned version of X-Men's Storm-the current actress portraying the character, Alexandra Shipp counters the critique with claims of colorism in the Black community (plantation Olympics....again); the FCC voted to negate net neutrality protections and what that could mean for the future of open internet access; thoughts about the forthcoming Annihilation film and how it will be released in theaters AND on Netflix streaming services; and lastly, Justice League Dark film concept art make it to the web.  Call in LIVE at 646-915-9620
