#113 | Run Dre & Rainbow Their Coins (feat. Cynthia)

The stars of ABC’s “black-ish”, Tracee Ellis Ross and Anthony Anderson, reportedly make less than half what many of the other ABC sitcom stars make. Is it racism? Bad contracts? Something else? Special guest Cynthia joins us to discuss the leaked chart of TV star salaries and whether or not it is indicative of systemic bias.

In addition, we also review the latest in TV (“Atlanta”, “Queen Sugar”, “How to Get Away with Murder”, “Timeless”, “The Flash”, and more), discuss John going to see “The Birth of a Nation” (Nate Parker’s, not D.W. Griffith’s), Brandon seeing “Easy A” for the first time, the trailer for Jordan Peele’s horror film “Get Out”, an upcoming biopic about the polyamorous BDSM relationship of Wonder Woman’s creator, Marvel news from New York Comic-Con, and Prodigy from Mobb Deep penning…a cookbook?

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!
