#63 | Starring Melissa McCarthy as Miss Sofia

First up, Brandon, Kareem & Ken review “The Art of Organized Noise”, the Netflix documentary about the production team that formed the backbone of the 1990s Atlanta hip-hop scene and defined the music of OutKast, Goodie Mob, TLC, and more. Ken also makes a strong argument for why, despite her reputation, Pebbles is the unsung hero of Atlanta R&B.

We also discuss Hamburger Helper dropping a mixtape – and a surprisingly decent one – on April Fool’s Day, how North Carolina’s anti-LGBT law will affect their film/TV production business, TV reviews of “Underground”, “Scandal”, the mid-season premieres of “Empire” and “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow”, “Love” on Netflix, the “Supergirl”/”The Flash” crossover, Actor’s Equity’s complaints about a “Hamilton” casting call for non-white actors, the Afrika Bambaataa sex abuse scandal, and much more – including a discussion about the decline of JET and EBONY magazines in the digital era.

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!
