You know the spiel….it’s a new episode of the Mid Week in Review (MWIR) as powered by the Afronerd Radio STEAM engine and it airs per usual every Wednesday at 7pm eastern.  Listen to your favorite AFROnerdists discuss the following topics; Dburt relays his experiences at this past weekend’s 15th annual Afropunk festival…warts and all; and you thought that last month’s SDCC provided stellar revelations….well Disney’s D-23 expo provided the proverbial “second shoe” drop with announcements of more Disney plus streaming shows-She Hulk, Moon Knight and Ms. Marvel….oh and then there was that Mandalorian trailer; Black Panther 2 for 2022;  and what seems to be the bizarre corporate move of the year, toy manufacturer, Hasbro purchases Death Row records and we have our thoughts;   and then there was the controversial Popeye’s chicken sandwich challenge.  Was it a setback for black culture? Was it a coup for social media and free advertising?  Why was singer/actress (and Afropunk alumni), Janelle Monae “dragged” on twiiter?  A black news anchor gets called a gorilla on live TV by his colleague; OR police are photoshopping mugshots to substantiate arrests and lastly, a 15 year old author is on his 3rd book to motivate kids.  Call LIVE at 646-915-9620.
