The Drill: The show is called The Mid Week in Review. It's fueled by the Afronerd Radio STEAM engine! Listen at your peril this Wednesday at 7pm eastern.  Your favorite AFROnerdist hosts will be waxing poetic about the following issues: fuller figured notables, Chika and Lizzo weigh in on societal body shaming; transgender actor, Laverne Cox also adds her two cents to the current national abortion debate; as expected, we revisit topics we failed to address on the last podcast; billionaire investment banker, Robert Smith, during his Morehouse College's commencement address announced that he would pay off the student loans for the class of '19 (woohoo!); does Oprah have to respond?;  with director, Zack Snyder recently disclosing that he was considering Zoe Saldana for the Lois Lane role in the Man of Steel film, is there ever the right way to race bend in Hollywood (and in print media?); Dburt has a rant about race, legacy admissions, The McCains and the concept of "turnabout is fair play" (with a dash of the Farrakhan vs Facebook controversy); Quentin Tarantino's Manson murder era film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood trailer hits the nets and Cannes; another Zoe (Kravitz) gets a Hulu series based on a film that her mother starred in previously, High Fidelity; more on John Wick 3 (spoilers!) and lastly, we will try to address any additional pop/pulp/comic news (new Westworld trailer!) that spews forth! Call LIVE at 646-915-9620.
