#141 | He Be Dyin’ Good

Last year, there was the controversy of #OscarsSoWhite. However, after learning this year’s nominees, it’s #OscarsSoLit, but are they truly more diverse? We discuss this bitter truth, along with our personal Oscar picks, “Moonlight,” “La La Land,” and “Arrival.” In addition, we also review “The Founder,” fake George Lucas guest starring on “Legends of Tomorrow,” and the premiere of the CW’s dark take on Archie Comics, “Riverdale.” Oh! And the latest entertainment hijinks of Trump’s America.

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!
