Upcoming Broadcasts

Good Tidings, folks! Welcome to the latest installment of Afronerd Radio's Grindhouse airing this Saturday at 6pm EST. For the first segment (The Comic Shoppe), listen to your hosts Dburt, Capt. Kirk and the "Uncanny" Daryll B. wax about the following issues: Dburt is incensed that MJ's Neverland Ranch is for sale (100m, allegedly) without being ascribed National Historic Landmark status; a recent Daily Beast article weighs in on the Marvel vs Fox Fantastic Four/X-men licensing beef; and speaking of Fox, it appears that the famed studio is looking to reboot The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen IP; Robert Rodriguez has been reportedly tapped to helm a Jonny Quest live action film (please no Spy Kids interpolation!); we finally get the chance to delve into DC's Convergence vs Marvel's Secret Wars; Image's Wicked+Divine are slated for a TV adaptation; Anyone notice the Nova Corp of color storyline in the latest Infinity Gauntlet comic this week? And lastly, we discuss the Joseph P. Illidge penned Mission/CBR piece on DC's DC You diversity initiative. And then there's the Afronerd Radio segment starting at 7pm. Listen to Capt. Kirk and Dburt discuss the following: Dburt still has yet another take on how some POC misinterpret "respectability politics"; hypocrisy alert-2016 presidential hopeful and reknowned neurosurgeon, Dr. Ben Carson appearing on a t-shirt with Dr. King raises eyebrows (I guess past depictions of Biggie/Tupac with various Black political heroes is ok, huh?); a Stanford University study affirms that Black students get punished more harshly than their White counterparts based on unconscious teachers' biases. And lastly, we will attempt to address topics missed from our last broadcast. Call in live at 646-915-9620.
