#46 | Dab on ‘Em, Grease Live

Just in time for the Super Bowl, part two of this week’s show finds Brandon, Kareem & John discussing the state of live sports broadcasting, in particular what cord-cutting will mean for ESPN and other sports networks, and what it could mean for the associated broadcast networks they share their sports telecast rights with. We also review FOX’s very expensive and very integrated production of “Grease: Live”, and wonder why exactly Coldplay has been tapped to perform the Halftime Show 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!
