So let's make this simple and plain. Check out and listen to your "podcast enterprise crew" (Dburt, Capt. Kirk and Daryll B.), this Saturday at 6pm as they discuss the following pop/pulp/political issues: we finally tackle the Esquire blog piece entitled, "Are Black Superheroes Good for Black People?"; can you believe that the vintage walkman used by Star-Lord in Guardians of The Galaxy is going for BIG bucks on Ebay?

Konichiwa. Ladies and Gents! Welcome to another fantastic sonic voyage courtesy of Afronerd Radio's Grindhouse broadcast airing this Saturday at 6pm (EST).

The question remains-how can Blacks and Latinos take advantage of this especially if it's occurring within or adjacent to their neighborhoods? Call live at 646-915-9620.
