What's up, fellow AFROnerdists!  Check out our latest installment of The Mid Week in Review, engineered by Afronerd Radio STEAM engine. Listen to your favorite podcasters deliberate on the following data:  legendary music producer, Pharrell Williams is causing quite a stir with his new GQ magazine cover that posits that there is a "new" masculinity afoot;  a new study asserts that there has been a steady rise in black teen suicide attempts, especially among girls; like clockwork, another hip hop list (courtesy of the BBC) gets it terribly wrong;  actress/musician, Zoe Kravitz, purportedly has been cast as the new Catwoman in Matt Reeves forthcoming Batman movie;  the transgender woman that was referenced in Dave Chappelle's latest Netflix special has committed suicide; was Atatiana Jefferson armed at the moment she was killed by Fort Worth police?  New evidence may be pointing in that direction;  actress Gina Rodriguez gets caught in an n-word nontroversy for (shocker!) rapping along to a song that has the explosive word in the lyrics (yawn);  filmmaker, Ava Duvernay gets sued for alleged inaccuracies depicted in her docu-drama, When They See Us; and Dburt ponders about garnering as much enthusiasm for a Marvel Crew (a la Black Avengers) movie versus a "lady" Avengers film?
