From the creative mind of Jamie Broadnax, creator of the Black Girl Nerds website and host of the BGN Podcast and the unapologetic “blerd” blogger Stephanie Williams, host of The Lemonade Show, comes a brand new weekly podcast called ‘Misty Knight’s Uninformed Afro’. The show is dedicated exclusively to the discussion of the black female superhero and is hitting podcast streams everywhere February 1, 2017!
“I wanted to take podcasting to another level with having a fun, yet informative discussion about Black superheroines. We incorporate media clips as well as reference specific comic issues with titles, dates, and creators behind each book discussed. We’re here to shed light on these women in a way that hasn’t quite been done before.” – Jamie Broadnax
The show’s weekly episodes aim to educate as well as celebrate the unsung heroic Black women in comics by featuring some of the hosts’ favorite superheroines like Misty Knight, Monica Rambeau, Amanda Waller, Vixen or the Dora Milaje, as well as highlighting many of the artists and writers who create these stories.
Listen to a preview of the podcast:
Just like the podcast title, (a fun twist on William’s own twitter name “MistyKnightsTwistout”) the new podcast’s goal is to not only entertain but to also educate and to become a valuable resource of information about Black female superheroes within the pop-culture and comic book genres. The Misty Knight’s Uninformed Afro Podcast will be available for streaming on iTunes, Soundcloud and Stitcher starting February 1, 2017.
