#108 | Three Years’ Worth of Grave Dust

Lupita Nyong’o is back in a new movie, and this time she’s not a CGI figure! Brandon, Kareem, Ken, and Ali review Disney’s new biopic “Queen of Katwe”, starring Lupita, David Oyelowo, and Madina Nalwanga. Spoiler alert: the movie’s amazing. Go see it.

Later, the guys discuss the original 1973 “The Exorcist”, which Kareem finally got Brandon to see…and he discusses just how horrified he was. They also catch up with cable Black excellence “Atlanta” and “Queen Sugar” and discuss Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie’s pending divorce, remembering “Space Ghost: Coast to Coast”, David Simon geting too familiar with certain words that start with an “n”, “She’s Gotta Have It” and “Dear White People” being adapted to series by Netflix, Fantasia & Anthony Hamilton’s “All Lives Matter” concert, and Don King tap dancing for the Republicans. We also pay our respects to actor Bill Nunn and rapper Shawty Lo, who passed away 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!
