Uno, Dos, Tres, Cuatro.....Bam! Welcome to a special Pre-Super Bowl edition of The Grindhouse podcast airing this Saturday at 6pm. Listen to your regular cavalcade of podcasters (Capt. Kirk, Claire Lanay, Daryll B and Dburt) as they shed light on this week's eventful subject matter:  as Marvel's Black Panther premiere approaches, it appears that some DC(EU) fans (with Alt Right leanings) are threatening to tank the movie's Rotten Tomatoes score for racial and anti-Disney reasons; Harry Potter author, JK Rowling has been accused of LGBTQ erasure for not addressing Dumbledore's sexuality in the upcoming Fantastic Beasts sequel (Rowling had a rather coy response and now there's talk of digital Blackface...it doesn't stop); and speaking of POC's countenances being usurped by Whites-Netflix' Altered Carbon debuts; we finally get around to legendary actor, Wesley Snipes' 20 plus year involvement in getting Black Panther to the silver screen;  more on Panther...should Blade, Spawn and Meteor Man (and heck Blaxploitation) get more recognition for setting up the environment for a Black sci-fi/fantasy renaissance; more on Star Trek: Discovery and how the recent episodes have allowed the return of a beloved character and questions the veracity of the Kelvin franchise; Marvel cancels their Disney XD animated projects; in tune with Black History month, we highlight the achievements of Golden Age comic book artist, Matt Baker and lastly, the crew will continue to address ancillary stories from this past week.  Call LIVE at 646-915-9620.
