Never let it be said that here at Afronerd Radio, we are not familiar with the term "irony." But first, let's give you a rundown relating to the show, shall we? Welcome to the Double-feature/Grindhouse edition of Afronerd starting with The Comic Shoppe at 6pm and ending with Afronerd featuring Captain Kirk at 7pm. For The Comic Shoppe, join Daryll B., Captain Kirk and Dburt as they discuss the following "pulp" culture topics: the crew's initial impressions of the new Star Trek into the Darkness teaser trailer which was released on the net a few days ago; our take on the latest Arrow episode including an appearance by the Huntress; more on 2014's X-Men sequel, Days of Future Past; UK's Misfits gets greenlighted for a movie, including the return of the original cast; legendary Neo-Soul songstress/actress makes an appearance on Fox's Fringe and lastly, a synopsis of David Brother's 4th Letter blog entry on race, comics and the evolution of Marvel's Luke Cage.

Next up, we have to address the aforementioned concept of irony as it relates to this week's Afronerd Radio broadcast.
Listen to Dburt and Captain Kirk at 7pm eastern as they wax on the following weekly events, happenings, tragedies (and mishaps): the crew welcomes back colleague and friend of the show, filmmaker Hilton Ariel Ruiz (Zombie with a Shotgun; AIR: The True Memoirs of Gil C. Alicea; The Forty-Deuce) to discuss his ironic (there goes that word again) connection to a real life horror centered around the Walking Dead TV series (and by extension, Zombie with a Shotgun, above); a UK teacher decides to give her class an assignment involving the development of a business plan for the transatlantic slave trade; for our Blue Area segment, Nigerian businesswoman Folorunsho Alakija surpasses media mogul, Oprah Winfrey as the wealthiest Black woman in the world and picking up from last week's episode-our thoughts on a recent Daily News op ed by Dr. John McWhorter affirming that racism appears to be waning in the U.S. Folks, we assure you that this Sunday's broadcast will be one for the ages! See you all at starting at 6pm sharp!
