Time to keep matters tight, terse and time sensitive! Check out this Saturday's Grindhouse edition of Afronerd Radio at 6pm eastern. For the first act, we have The Comic Shoppe with your hosts Dburt, Daryll B. and Captain Kirk. Call the show live ar 646-915-9620. The topics under the microscope this week are: the crew's thoughts relating to this year's NY Comic Con; Man of Steel 2 starts filming this weekend; the PBS documentary, Superheroes: A Never-Ending Battles premieres; Is it safe to say that the Carrie reboot is off to a great start when its spoof viral campaign has garnered 41 million hits?; animation and live action pros, Bruce Timm and Zack Snyder combine forces to produce an excellent film short to commemorate Superman's 75th anniversary and lastly, if time permits, our thoughts about CW's Arrow as it enters its second season.
And for Afronerd Radio (airing afterward at 7pm), Dburt and Captain Kirk will elucidate on the following issues: a new HuffPost piece, ponders why many perceive Blacks to suffer less pain than Whites; the folks at Shadow and Act debate the existence of a modern audience for serious slavery films and the "Podcast Avengers" will attempt to get to the remaining topics from Wednesday's show (a McDonalds worker gets arrested for confronting the CEO and our thoughts regarding a recent 8Asian.com blog piece entitled, Where White means Mediocre: High-Skilled Asian Immigrant Enclaves). Excelsior!
