#77 | White “Empire”

Have you ever heard of a hostile takeover? Allegedly, Shari Redstone has. In our Say Something Nice Challenge section, Brandon and John talk about how she might be trying to play the Andre Lyon to her father Sumner Redstone’s Lucious Lyon, and trying to take over Empi–uh, I mean the Viacom boardroom. She does what she wants and says what she wants with no apologies.

Speaking of “Empire”, Brandon reviews the season 2 finale and why he might be ready to tap out, John reviews the new film “The Nice Guys”, and together they discuss Geoff Johns becoming co-head of DC Films, more Upfronts updates (including concise breakdowns of the DC Comics and Archie Comics universes for discussion of The CW’s “Legends of Tomorrow and their new “Riverdale” show) for the fall 2016 broadcast schedules, the season finales for both “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” and “black-ish”, the leaked-then-canceled Christina Aguilera/Hologram Whitney Houston duet, and more, including an discussion of why 1970 was a tense year for the then-newly-Diana-Rossless Supremes when their first release did better than Diana’s first solo release.

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!
