Greetings, people!  With a splash of cold water, we're just going to jump into this thing called The Grindhouse!  Welcome to our podcast, powered by Afronerd Radio and airing this Sunday at 6pm eastern.  Join your favorite podcast Minoriteam crew (Claire Lanay, Daryll B., Capt. Kirk and Dburt) as they unravel this week's pop culture phenomena:  the CW's Black Lightning TV series appears to have legs as the ratings contiinue to excel for the only Black superhero themed show on the network; after a number of Black actors and properties have gained recognition in the wake of the prior #OscarsSoWhite campaign, The Root waxes about another campaign called #OscarsSoBlackandWhite. Is racial diversity in filmmaking and representation still a binary discussion?; with reboots such as Full House, Will & Grace and Rosanne returning, is the 90's Martin TV sitcom going to be "joining the ranks" as well?; Dburt can't get enough of the Doomsday Clock graphic novel series (the Watchmen connect to the DC Universe); more icons are passing: 

Civil Rights legend, Rev. Wyatt Tee Walker; cartoonist, Mort Walker (Beetle Bailey) and jazz great, Hugh Masekela; maybe we'll talk about Jay-z vs Trump (my energy levels are low folks); Marvel is reportedly cancelling all Disney XD animated shows;  noted comic writer, Chris Claremont is ready for his close-up in a forthcoming  X-men documentary; SYFY's Superstition wrapped up it's first season but will we get a season 2?: more on media personality, Amara La Negra and why her "look" is controversial (allegedly); and lastly, noted comic artist, John Romita and writer Dan Abnett team up for an upcoming comic, Silencer-starring a female assassin of Polynesian descent (no Samoan/Tahitian/Tongan involvement, huh?).  Call LIVE at 646-915-9620.
