    The Mid Week Review Airs This WED, 8pm EST @BTalk 100; Topics: Hot 97's "Paddy Duke"; More DC Fandome Talk; All Rise; Nichelle Nichols


    Check out the latest installment of Afronerd Radio's Mid Week in Review (MWIR) broadcast this Wednesday at 8pm and airing thanks to the good folks at BTalk 100.  The topics to be placed under our microscope this (mid) week are: longtime Hot 97 NY radio staffer, Paddy Duke was fired after the station discovered that he was one of a mob of eight men charged in the infamous 1989 racial killing of Yusef Hawkins; tying up some loose ends from our last Grindhouse discussion (i.e. attempts at racist/sexist story lines on the set of CBS' All Rise TV show; acting legend, Nichelle Nichols latest struggles) including last weekend's DC Fandome pop culture event;

    Ok....where are we now, since we've seen episode 2 of HBO's supernatural TV series, Lovecraft Country?;  British soul artist, Van Morrison appears NOT to care about covid-19 and science but he does care about filling concert seats (sigh);  another Peacock streaming show, Noughts + Crosses may be of interest, expanding on the theme of role reversal between races and cultures (what if Africa colonized Europe?)


    Thoughts about Netflix' apology for inappropriate artwork for the French youth dramatic film, Cuties (titled Mignonnes in France); thoughts about several pieces-the upcoming Three Jokers comic and what it could mean to expanding the mythology of Batman's most notable nemesis and how does the Yakuza video franchise address toxic masculinity). And lastly, hat tip to stalwart listener, John Hutton for tweeting this harrowing tale of loss of generational wealth and the devaluation of blackness as exhibited in a Florida real estate appraisal (further explored in a recent NY Times piece):
