#45 | Byron Allen Strikes Back (feat. Bobby Huntley)

Part one of this week’s show finds our favorite indie filmmaker Bobby Huntley (@buntleyfilms on his very active Instagram) joining Brandon and John as they discuss #OscarsSoWhite fallout from angry older Oscars voters, the success of Nate Parker’s “The Birth of a Nation” at Sundance, Paramount going full #Poopamount, and Byron Allen shaking up the Sundance bidding table and finding time to sue the FCC and Charter Communications for racial discrimination. Plus, we offer a reenactment of the true story behind Rihanna’s new album “Anti” being leaked and a dramatic reading of Kanye West’s now-classic Twitter meltdown and its aftermath.

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!
