Episode 32: Truth Hurts, Freemantle #freeorlandojones

When it was announced that Orlando Jones was fired as Mr. Nancy for American Gods, Noelle pitched a fit and we knew what our topic was going to be about. We brought in Alpha Riff to join us in a podcast that was already in progress (because as soon as craig came in Noelle was off to the races). While Bill was talking on the website about Harry Potter and how you can fight the TERF known as JK Rowling, Noelle had to talk about her other love, American Gods, and the outrage of the removal of Orlando Jones as Mr. Nancy. Lizzo was also brought up because of things that have been targeted at her after her exuberant performance during a Lakers vs Timberwolves game, and the distaste of society for anything for people with color. This is a messy AF podcast that also includes discussion about POC tropes, about POC being forced to “act white”, much about Fremantle and the link to the Gabrielle Union also being fired.
