    The Mid Week in Review Airs This Wed @BTalk100: More on Capt. Kirk's Passing; Janelle Monae vs (Male) Hip Hop; Kaepernick & Disney+ More

    Hey folks....honestly, the Afronerd Radio family is going to be in mourning indefinitely since we discovered that the soul of our blerd media enterprise, Kirk "The Captain" Goodall passed away last week.  And for listeners that were unable to hear this past Sunday's memorial broadcast, it will be available in podcast form shortly.  If there's one thing that Captain Kirk taught our crew, it's to forge forward in spite of adversity and honor the original mission-the promulgation of the other black experience (blerd culture, urb-alt music, science/tech, commerce and black intellect as product). So let's try to do exactly that.....get into a groove and discuss the matters of the day via our new home BTalk 100.

    Check out the latest installment of the Mid Week in Review via the  Afronerd Radio steam engine airing this Wednesday at 8pm eastern.  The topics on your summertime barbecue grill are:  more thoughts, prayers and observations concerning the untimely passing of our brother (and yours!), Captain Kirk; actress/singer, Janelle Monae had some interesting things to say about the longstanding misogyny in hip hop; and right on time after Monae's remarks, there that business with minstrels, 50 Cent and Lil Wayne; although it's still murky if activist and athlete, Colin Kaepernick will ever play in the NFL, it's more apparent that other corporations (like Disney) are open to business with him;  and as expected quite a few NFL fans are non-committal toward the league for promising to play "Lift Every Voice and Sing" a.k.a. the Black national anthem before a preseason games;  more thoughts about the erasure of white, racist and/or Confederate monuments, statutes and honors and what happens if black effigies are given that same work? ( Frederick Douglass); The Comics Beat highlights the contribution of noted Barnes & Noble graphic novel buyer, Jim Killen who was recently furloughed from the company after 20 years of service in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic; Harry Potter author, J.K. Rowling signs an open letter (along with 150 other notables) critiquing cancel culture; And lastly, what can we expect from proposed upcoming virtual comic conventions (i.e. SDCC, Marvel and Dragon-Con).  Call in LIVE at 508-645-0100.
