SORT BY Relevancy
Americans and the rest of the world are waking up to some shocking news.
1) Emporer Obama (I refuse to disrespect the title and position of President) is again making moves to "fundamentally change America". One thing you can say about this guy is he is keeping his campaign promises.
2) North Korean cyper-hackers have blackmailed the movie theater industry into yanking a political satire movie. Freedom of speech and expression taking another hit by communism.
Isn't it a great day in America?
America is truly "In the Pickle Barrel".
See you at 8AM-10AM EST as we discuss these issues and others as we try to find a way to get out of the proverial pickle barrel.

Seasons Greetings to all our stalwart Afronerd Radio listeners! We're back at it AGAIN with a two-hour showcase, filled with mirth, mayhem and mind expansion! It's Wednesday's Mid Week in Review airing 7:30pm EST. Join Dburt and Capt. Kirk for another captivating sonic voyage when we interview esteemed author/journalist, Cora Daniels (Ghetto Nation) to discuss her latest literary effort, Impolite Conversations: On Race, Politics, Sex, Money and Religion. Ms. Daniels' (with co-author,John L. Jackson, Jr.) Impolite Conversations, puts forth the notion of highlighting uncomfortable issues concerning the Black community with a type of prosaic frankness that might just fit in with a show called Afronerd. Folks, this is not the show to miss.
And for the second half, we will literally continue with the segment we failed to broadcast due to time constraints stemming from our last great guest, Jamie Broadnax (of Black Girl Nerds). The topics to be addressed are: the Ferguson aftermath spurs Black athletes to become politically active; is Geraldo Rivera correct about likening Black victimization to a form of urban suicide?; is hip hop artist, Jay-Z, the right police misconduct advisor for NY Governor, Andrew Cuomo; the new "Hands Up" anti-police rap video causes outrage and lastly, the minstrelsy continues with a new website entitled lightskinordarkskin.com that judges one's skin tone (really?). Call the hosts live at 646-915-9620.

Taylor Mason’s quick wit, flawless delivery and polished material make him a hit with audiences of all ages. He is a ventriloquist, musician and stand-up comedian.
He has carved out a career in comedy and entertainment that has taken him around the world and into living rooms across the United States for the past 25 years. He’s won multiple, prestigious entertainment awards, appeared on a myriad of television programs, helped craft and performed in television commercials, wrote a book on ventriloquism for Penguin Publishing, and on and on.
He has a bachelor’s degree in Agriculture from the University of Illinois and a master’s degree from The Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University. His experience as a comedy writer and performer has taken him from The Second City Theater in Chicago to headlining gigs at every major comedy club across the country. He’s as comfortable writing and executing humor for corporate clients like Microsoft and Wal-Mart as he is doing a show for teens or children on a Disney Cruise ship. He’s performed for countless church functions. He’s done bar mitzvahs and synagogue shows. He continues to sell out comedy clubs and is requested at college campuses.
It’s impossible to put Taylor Mason in a box. You cannot define his audience, because his act transcends demographics and niches. It’s a throwback and yet it’s contemporary. He’s inclusive, he’s genuinely interested in his audience and he’s 100% committed to every performance, every project, and every single job he takes.
There is no way to describe what he does, because combining ventriloquism, music and comedy is unique to Taylor Mason and quite literally needs to be seen to be believed.
Join host Lori Hays for an exciting conversation with author Mark David Gerson for a conversation about his literary journey and his newest book: Birthing Your Book: Even If You Don't Know What It's About
"I like to joke that my Muse tricked me into writing and, in a sense, that's true. In public school and through most of university, I did everything I could to avoid writing. I opted instead for subjects like math; that way, I minimized the dangers of not only being wrong but of being judged harshly for having been wrong.
"But my Muse had other plans, as I write about in Acts of Surrender: A Writer's Memoir. Starting in high school when I was pushed into doing the publicity for two musical theater productions, I was slowly, subtly and unconsciously transformed into the writer I never thought I wanted to be. Within a decade, I was freelancing full-time as a self-taught writer and editor.
"What I have discovered over the years is that The Call To Write is one I can't ignore, which is why I titled my second book The Voice of the Muse: Answering the Call to Write. I can't not write any more than I can't not breathe.
"Today, when I'm not working on my own creative projects, I'm helping to guide others -- writers and non-writers alike -- on theirs. I do it with my books and recordings. I do it in my workshops, webinars and seminars. And I do it one-on-one as a creativity catalyst, a term I invented to take coaching and mentoring to dynamic, more empowered levels.
