MK 314: The Colonialism Effect (Haiti, This is Pop, Jeopardy, Sinbad, Kazam, Fun Black Fiction, Boyz II Men, LeVar Burton, Beckett)

Episode 314

20th August 2021

Docuseries This is pop on Netflix gave us some revelations about Boyz II Men, where all pop music comes from and just what is country music! Jeopardy has a new host and it’s… not LeVar Burton! Is this the Hollywood nepotism at work that Franklin Leonard was debating Ben Stiller about on Twitter? Is Sinbad’s possible existence of ‘Kazaam’ another piece of proof of the Mandela Effect? Haiti has been on the receiving end of disaster after disaster recently. We talk about it’s history, it’s resilience in the face of US and European fuckery, and the real and actual ways you can help out! And at the end MacKenzie asks, “why is it so hard to find frivolous Black fiction?” and some recommendations for you!
