Ok...in homage of a potential game changer for the James Bond franchise, let's make this show description, straight with no chaser! Welcome to Afronerd Radio's Mid Week in Review (MWIR) podcast, airing every Wednesday at 7pm eastern.  The topics up for grabs this week are: the crew paid a visit to Brooklyn's third annual Blerd City Con held at Saint Francis College and we give you a run down of the festivities; freshmen congresswomen Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, Ayanna Pressley, Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib better known as "The Squad" appear to have raised the ire of President Trump to such a degree-ad hominem racial attacks are apparently not off limits for this Commander in Chief;  the many years of speculation that Idris Elba might be in line to assume the role of James Bond, many media outlets are intimating that Captain Marvel's Lashana Lynch might be considered for a racial and gender twist to the character (no Cleopatra Jones redux, huh?); noted futurist/inventor, Elon Musk has more news about the prospects of a human-A.I. interface device;  Thor 4 and Kingsmen prequel news;  lastly, the Chinese (only) ancestry casting call for Marvel's Shang Chi film is causing a viral frenzy in China.  Call LIVE at 646-915-9620.
