    GXW - Episode 247 - " Examining Race and Representation in our Media"

    **Listener discretion advised**

    Today's episode examines the representation of  Black culture in our media; then and now. One way we can support the black community is by recognizing the messages that we were witness to in our youth. What were shows and movies like Fresh Prince,  Diff'rent Strokes or Do the Right Thing telling the youth about equality, or rather, the lack of it? What is available to us today to help learn more about a message that has become lost or ignored?

These are my kind of people!!

As a child of the 80’s these shoes help me relive the nostalgia of being a kid during, what I believe, was the best time to be a kid!! The gen-x crew do an amazing job of discussing collecting, movies, cartoons, etc... with legitimate nerd curiosity and leave out the current trend of hating on a story just because it didn’t go the direction you wanted. Just colourful fun, just like the 80’s!

Like hanging out with geeky friends.

Needed something to keep me company while working and this was perfect! It was like my youth, hanging out with friends, playing video games and talking about the geeky stuff we love.
