#124 | Hashtag Storytelling

As you make your Turkey Day preparations, the Say Something Nice crew is back to review many of the latest films vying for your holiday weekend dollars: “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” “Arrival,” “Almost Christmas” and more.

We also discuss “Marvel’s The Inhumans”, The CW’s midseason shakedown, “How To Get Away with Murder” trying to get away with doing too damn much, Kanye doing too damn much, Trump vs. the cast of “Hamilton”, and the one thing Pastor Shirley Caesar doesn’t like about the #UNameItChallenge. Spoiler: it ain’t the dogs, apparently.

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!
