The Boys Are Back 4 Another Wed Show! CNN Journalist Soledad O'brien Stops By Afronerd Radio at 5pm & Another MID-Week in Review!
It appears that our podcast supporters will be in for a treat this Wednesday at 5pm eastern. Noted CNN Correspondent and journalist/author, Soledad O'brien stops by to discuss her new memoir, The Next Big Story: My Journey Through the Land of Possibilities. The Next Big Story is a candid look at Ms. Obrien's trek-starting from her Long Island roots, through her time as a Harvard student as well as her struggle and perseverance in gaining respect in the media industry. If time permits, we may be able to squeeze our current events segment for the second half-The (Mid) Week in Review (i.e. a Harvard/Yale alumni function that was cut short for fear of it attracting a gang presence; the second act for WikiLeaks, etc). So don't be scuurred-call us live at 646-915-9620 or via email/IMemail@example.com. And remember-Be there and Be square-it might just save your life!

Check Out Afronerd Radio's "Armageddon" Broadcast-Sun at 7pm-Issues w/Facebook, The Pope & Angry Vets!
Don't let the title of this entry/show promotion fool you....Armageddon might be the word that's appropriate to describe this week's latest stories. Stop by this Sunday at 7pm (eastern) as Captain Kirk and yours truly use our unique brand of conservative (and sometimes independent) analysis to the following issues: Pope Benedict's recent capitulation toward condom use for male prostitutes (and then a subsequent retraction); our qualms with Facebook as well as a New Jersey's minister's recent decree to his congregation to delete their accounts from the social networking service (oh..but there's more to this story...); a 78 year old White veteran was recently arrested for making threats against President Obama claiming that the POTUS wasn't doing enough to help Black people and if there's time, perhaps a discussion rebuking the madness called Black Friday. Feel free to call us "live" at: 646-915-9620 or via email/IMfirstname.lastname@example.org. Meanwhile check out this killer performance by Alecia Chakour and the Osrah interpolating Burt Bacharach (although late Isaac Hayes' version can't be forgotten) classic, "Walk on by":

An SNL Skit That Was Actually Funny! Special Hump Day-Pre Turkey Day Show, Wed at 7pm-TSA Shenanigans, Racial Profiling & Obama Critic Loses Job!
Some topics are so hot, we just couldn't wait for the Sunday broadcast to discuss them! Join Captain Kirk and yours truly tomorrow evening (at 7pm) to pick up on an issue that we failed to cover due to time constraints on Sunday's broadcast-racial profiling. But let's go one step further....what happens when the specific profile is that there isn't a profile? Hence, the present controversy revolving around alleged probative tactics employed by the TSA toward prospective airplane passengers-irrespective of race. Does this put the issue of profiling in a different context? Maybe. Maybe not. And if there's enough room on our conservative table, our thoughts on the firing of Obama supporter, Velma Hart, who you might remember confronted the President in a rather personal and provocative manner during a town hall meeting a few months back. So let's dip our feet into the fire and chop it up in a Mid-Week in Review broadcast. Feel free to give us a buzz at 646-915-9620 or via email/IM email@example.com!
Oh, and least we forget...mark your calendars (coincidentally) for December 1st (special 5pm airing) as CNN journalist/author, Soledad O'brien joins us to discuss her latest literary endeavor, The Next Big Story: My Journey Through the Land of Possibilities. Treat this clip of Ms. O'brien as a teaser...
