#189 | Captain Oxtail and the 2017 San Diego Comic-Con Recap Adventure | #saysomethingnew

From the world of Wakanda to the power of Shazam, San Diego Comic-Con 2017 brought a number of film and television announcements for us to look forward to over the coming year. The SSN Crew discusses the good, bad, and bizarre (another “Flashpoint” adaptation?) of the SDCC news items, as well as the new film “Valerian,” the classic film “Imitation of Life,” the “Game of Thrones” showrunners’ problematic new HBO project, “Confederate,” and a fresh reaction to the season 2 premiere of “Insecure.”

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!
