#01 | Nobody Puts Beyoncé in a Corner

Our first episode. So this is all finally a thing. This week Kareem and Brandon talk about their questionable taste in a late-80s coming-of-age television series as John judges them. We also discuss the Oscars, what we’ve watched this week and new music releases.

Every week we’ll have an in-depth discussion on whatever interests us, old and new, in the worlds of movies, music, TV, tech and comics. All of it will be awesome.

*00:00:28: Intro!

*00:01:30: Oscar Talk – Well, mostly “Selma”

*00:09:44: Beyoncé and Ledesi – Who is Ledesi? Listen and find out.

*00:14:23: “Empire” – We begin our weekly tradition of dissecting the mess that is Empire.

*00:33:29: Sony Email Dump! – Oh Amy Pascal, we parse through week 1 of the Sony email dump.

*00:56:58: “Addicted”/”Dear White People” – Kareem watched a movie based on a Zane novel and lived to tell about it. Brandon tells us why “Dear White People” isn’t angry.

*01:07:02: “The Man Who Knew Too Much” – John talks about his purchase of Hitchcock’s 1956 remake.

*01:15:51: “Run the Jewels 2” Review – Kareem & Brandon talk about the gun & fist.

*01:28:04: Lil Wayne/Birdman Spat – *rubs hands together*

*01:34:30: Favorite Old TV Shows – Kareem and Brandon are in complete denial about the awfulness that is “The Wonder Years”. Guess who’s writing the show notes this week?

Join Brandon, John, Kareem, Ken, and Jamison as we discuss, dissect, and try to make sense of the past, present, and future in film, television, music, animation, race relations in media - and on occasion comics and tech - while trying to remain sane. If you’re tired of hearing the same (*ahem*) monochromatic take on modern media, we’re the podcast for you!
