    Salutations with a side order of crumpets and cornbread to our steadfast listenership!  Join Dburt, Capt. Kirk and the "Uncanny" Daryll B., for a new episode of Afronerd Radio's Grindhouse airing this Saturday at 6pm EST.  For our latest installment, we welcome writer, editor and co-owner of Verge Entertainment, Joseph Illidge.  Mr. Illidge stops by Afronerd Studios to discuss his forthcoming project, The Ren as well as his stellar editorial career at DC Comics and Milestone Media.  Additionally, the crew will dissect the following stories: comedic actor, Simon Pegg (Star Trek, Shaun of the Dead) has some choice words regarding geek culture and the infantilization of adult society (what, his geek movie themed checks bounced?); what does the leak of the Supergirl pilot episode 6 months before the official airing mean for the series? ; what are the implications for the season finales of Agents of Shield and The Flash; DC's Convergence vs Marvel's Secret Wars-flipside of the same crossover event?; our impressions of the recent Mad Max reboot.  And lastly, actor, Michael B. Jordan states his case for "fear of a Black Human Torch."

Kirk as they discuss the following topics: The Root site gets purchased by Univision; Sean P. Diddy Combs weighs in on the #BlackLivesMatter movement; another police shooting of unarmed Black men-this time occurring in WA ; Bionic contact lens are on the horizon; our thoughts about the upcoming afronerd-centric Dope film.  Lastly, the recent story of a Harvard grad arrested for drug dealing and how cultural underpinnings are hard to avoid.  Call the hosts live at 646-915-9620.

    Goodbye, Sábado Gigante: The Manero Pop Podcast, Episode 4

    in Pop Culture

    You've probably heard the news by now: the variety TV show Sábado Gigante will end his record-breaking 53-year run on the air come September.


    The show started in Chile in 1962, but after moving to Miami in 1986, it became an institution of Latino television in the United States, and a cultural touchstone of the immigrant experience.


    But Sábado Gigante was not free of controversy: even when the immediate reactions after the news of the show's cancelation broke were cries of "devastation," as they days went a very different reaction came to light. Several critics expressed their hatred of a show they considered "racist and misogynistic."


    Here, José Manuel Simián and Marcelo Báez discuss the impact of the Sábado Gigante on Latino pop culture, and interview blogger Laura Martínez and former member of the show's Clan Infantil, Paz Zárate.


    UPDATE: During his interview with Laura Martínez, José Manuel Simián made an implicit reference to Univisión's host Fernando Fiore, who is no longer with the network.

    New Grindhouse Mashup, Courtesy of Afronerd Radio Airs Saturday @6pm EST!

    in Politics Conservative

    It's amazing that there's only 47 days, 20 hours and 40 minutes as we're draft this episode description until Avengers 2 hits the theaters, but who's counting?  Welcome to the latest episode of Afronerd Radio's Grindhouse Mashup where the worlds of geekdom/blerdom, politics and current events collide and more importantly, the "uncanny" Daryll B. sits in for the show's entirety. The topics scheduled to be atomized are: Playstation's Powers TV series hit the net and the ubiquitous game consoles last week and we give our impressions; our thoughts about DMG Entertainment purchasing the film rights to Valiant Comics' intellectual properties; just what is all the hoopla over the Apple watch and can anyone below the late Steve Jobs' pay grade afford it?;  a few geek incidentals to chop up (TV's Supergirl costume, Preacher casting, SHIELD, Arrow and Flash predictions, Fish Mooney exits Gotham, the Daredevil Kingpin centric trailer) ; Dburt plays devil's advocate (shocker!) regarding credit scores being used for screening job applicants; Chappie and Focus reviews; Univision host compares FLOTUS to a character in the Planet of the Apes (wow); in more #BlackLivesMatterOnlyWhenWhitesAreInvolved news-a young Oakland mother is gunned down while trying to shield her kids from gunfire and lastly, #BLACKBUFFOONERYTRUMPSWHITECRIMINALITY-Dburt notices that the NY Daily News provided a front page spread for a brutal Black girlfight in a Brooklyn McDonalds but the Mafisoso 55 kilo drug bust story was relegated to a small mention on page 10! (continue watching Empire at your own peril, folks).  Call the hosts live at 646-915-9620.
