Hey, folks!  You know the drill! Check out a new episode of The Mid Week in Review (MWIR) airing every Wednesday at 7pm eastern.  Join your regular AFROnerdist podcasters as they delve into the following issues:  per usual we left quite a few topics on the table from our Sunday Grindhouse show so let's attempt to pick up the slack (The Simpsons may be cancelling the Apu character due to mounting claims of South Asian stereotyping; Brown University is purportedly offering classes in curtailing toxic masculinity; and famed Black Brit director, Steve McQueen (Widows) in a recent Collider piece has issues with HBO, Netflix and streaming platforms versus conventional cinema); former Sec. of State, Hillary Clinton is in a bit of hot water over a racial off color joke;  Kanye West may be distancing himself away from President Trump;  a more allegorical, if not realistic episode of CW's Supergirl has many fans split over its allusions to Trump supporters (Dburt thought it was their best episode to date); Deadpool 2 returning to theaters? PG-13? Why?; Al Roker replaces Megyn Kelly after her controversial exit; director, Ava Duvernay has been tapped to direct a multi part documentary on Prince for Netflix and lastly, a USA Today piece posits that most Americans are unable to sustain a middle class lifestyle due to the current cost of living.  Call LIVE at 646-915-9620.
