Happy New Year! Nuff said....or maybe not! Welcome to the 2015 edition of Afronerd Radio's Grindhouse Mashup broadcast airing this Saturday at 6pm (EST) sharp! Our longtime listeners know the drill-The Grindhouse Mashup is simply the show where the lines between Afronerd Radio and The Comic Shoppe are truly "blerd." Join Daryll, B., Capt. Kirk and Dburt as they pontificate on this past year's goings ons in pop culture (superhero films, sci-fi/fantasy TV-Korra's controversial ending, binge watching, conventions, games/gaming consoles), politics (Ferguson protests, racism-Donald Sterling/Sony hacks, police brutality, POTUS, famous deaths,etc). Additionally, we will address our predictions in pulp/pop culture (Avengers 2, Ant-Man, Star Wars, etc) as well as what to expect during President Obama's remaining viable year as POTUS. This is the wrap-up/futurist show NOT TO MISS! Call the hosts live at 646-915-9620.
As the title infers, we're a few weeks away from our usual Grindhouse Mashup broadcast, but since we preempted our last show, let's give our audience as much fun, facts and fire as inhumanly (a term Black Bolt can only whisper) possible. So join Dburt, Daryll B. and Capt. Kirk this Saturday at 6pm to unfurl the following pop/pulp/political topics: the highly anticipated Aaron McGruder Black Jesus project raises the ire of Christian Groups; three cast members from Marvel's Ant-man have left the (ant)"farm" ; the team finally weighs in on the NYPD choke hold death of Eric Garner; waxing on an Esquire blog piece entitled Are Blacksuperheroes Good for Black People?; Dburt laments the emergence of rapper, Bobby Shmurda and ponders why isn't "innocence" marketed to people of color; New York Knickerbocker, Carmelo Anthony starts a venture capital firm for tech startups; ESPN sports analyst, Stephen A, Smith dared to give a "deconstructed" viewpoint about domestic violence in the wake of the Ray Rice controversy and gets pummeled on twitter; Expendables 3 makes its way online in HD quality, how will this affect the box office returns (100K+ downloads in 24 hours can't be good); San Diego Comic Con revelations and lastly, was the casting call for the upcoming NWA biopic, Straight Outta Compton really shocking? Call the hosts live at 646-915-9620. And remember, make yours Afronerd, The Comic Shoppe and The Grindhouse!

This huge development has been in the works for some time in Jonathan Hickman’s years-long Avengers saga.

The resulting Battleworld will the Marvel Universe going forward.
