Lionel Richie announcing his intent to make a Curtis Mayfield biopic couldn’t have come at a better time. With the current occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue threatening to revoke NBC’s broadcast license and Jemele Hill getting suspended from ESPN for speaking out against white supremacy, we need all of the quality Negrotainment we can get. Hi, BET! The SSN Crew discusses these topics, along with the financial failure of “Blade Runner 2049,” Netflix’s adaptation of Stephen King’s novel, “Gerald’s Game,” the return of “The Flash” and “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow,” and our problematic fave, “Riverdale.”

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!
