#161 | Notes on the Stroke

In a world where white women can stop racism with Pepsi, Scarlett Johansson can star in anything but a Black Widow solo film, and “Legends of Tomorrow” is better than “The Flash,” the SSN Podcast is here to help you make sense of a world gone mad. In addition, we also discuss Tomi “You-Ain’t-Got-No-Job” Lahren suing Glenn Beck for wrongful termination, catch up on the current seasons of “Scandal” and “Riverdale,” and revisit the Hitchcock classic “North by Northwest.” Finally, after 21 years, we get a lead in the Tupac Shakur murder case…from a very unlikely source.

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!
