#55 | Zootopia is Woke as Duck

Who would have guessed that Disney, of all studios, would make “Zootopia”, an animated allegory about racism and have it be a success? Who would have guessed that that (blackface) Zoe Saldana Nina Simone movie would see the light of day? And who would have thought Kanye West would be trying to pirate music software – and then go off on his co-worker who owns the software?

All of these things happened this week, and Brandon, Kareem, John, and Ken are here to talk about these plus “House of Cards” Season 4, Kendrick Lamar’s surprise “untitled unmastered” album release, the new “Ghostbusters” trailer, David Alan Greer’s tweet about becoming the new Colonel Sanders for KFC, and much more.

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!
