#130 | Presumptuous, Pompous & Preposterous (feat. @tREBLEFREE)

“Hairspray Live!” has come and gone, with everything over but the shouting (hi, Jennifer Hudson!). The Say Something Nice clique discusses the highs and lows of the live musical TV special and why exactly a man always the mother in every version of this story. Bonus: Our friend Greg aka tREBLEFREE adds his two cents in a special segment.

In addition, we also took some time to discuss Lee Daniels putting his foot all the way to the cankle in his mouth while discussing his new show, “Star,” the “Spider-Man: Homecoming” trailer, Beyonce’s country Grammy snub, J. Cole’s new album “4 Your Eyes Only,” and last week’s TV midseason finales.

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!
