#122 | It’s Not Racist, It’s Presidential (feat. @itsdonte)

As post-presidential election hangovers begin to subside, the Say Something Nice crew and special guest Donte discuss the Election Day 2016 coverage, including “Desus & Mero” on Viceland, the Dave Chappelle-hosted episode of “Saturday Night Live”, and all of the celebrities who had questionable things to say following the election results. Bad Oprah! Bad!

In addition, we also discuss Jennifer Lopez being cast in NBC’s “Bye Bye Birdie Live!” for 2017, the continuing shift of original films from big studios to small indie outlets, “Young Justice” returning for Season 3, and revisits of the film “The Boys in the Band” and Diahann Carroll’s groundbreaking sitcom “Julia.”

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!
