Our audience knows the deal, so let's dive in!  It's time for Afronerd Radio's Grindhouse podcast airing every Sunday at 6pm eastern. Listen to the unique waxing of the Afronerd podcasters as they highlight the following topics: iconic American songstress, Aretha Franklin passes at 76 and the world mourns; And who picks up the baton that Aretha tried to pass along? No one.;  thoughts about a upcoming X-men arc that returns the character, Psylocke back to White (yes it's convoluted) despite having been portrayed as Asian for close to 30 years; more on filmmaker, Jordan Peele's upcoming HBO TV series, Lovecraft Country based on the book that explores horror and race through the adventures of a Black family on a road trip in the deep South during the Jim Crow 1950s;  Disney gets accused of colorism with a black character's second appearance in an upcoming animated film; picking up where we left off with the Lyor Cohen interview about drug usage promotion in hip hop;  Dburt wonders why aren't there HBCU contestants on Jeopardy during their college themed shows;  highlighting the book, Everybody Lies by Seth Stephens-Davidowitz which essentially places focus on Google's ability to tap into the human psyche on a Freudian level (and it's not pretty); discussing the Ducktales reboot along with the return of Adult Swim's Venture Bros.; unfortunately, Boots Riley has a problem with Spike Lee's BlacKkKlansman; And more about Dburt's #getoncode agenda.  Call LIVE at 646-915-9620.
