Greetings to our unwavering afronerdists!  Welcome to a new installment of Afronerd Radio'sMid Week in Review (MWIR) podcast-airing this Wednesday at 7pm ET.  Join Dburt, Capt. Kirk and the "Uncanny" Daryll B. as they provide their unique brand of analyses relating to the following (mid) weekly topics:  actor/comedian, Aziz Ansari finds himself in the middle of a potentially career ending sexual assault claim that has many people divided as to its severity and whether it threatens the legitimacy of the #Metoo movement;  and speaking of #MeToo, author, Margaret Atwood (The Handmaid's Tale) faced social media backlash for daring to suggest that due process (shame!) should be applied in the case of a former university professor accused of sexual misconduct; the crew discusses the impact of Pres. Donald Trump's alleged usage of the "sh*thole countries" remark as it pertains to desirable immigrants for the US; picking up where we left off from the Grindhouse broadcast-more on our attendance at the 6th annual Black Comic Festival in Harlem, NY and what was the deal with #blackhogwarts trending on twitter?;  perhaps the only true "lightbulb" moment coming out from The Root website-will a brave journalist take a bet and ask Donald Trump his thoughts about a bilateral trade agreement with Wakanda? (please someone do this!); And lastly, our impressions of the CW's Black Lightning premiere episode.  Call LIVE at 646-915-9620.
