Episode 81 - Black Lightning

Bear, Jenn and Josh are joined by friend of the show, Loki Lott, to talk Black Lightning. We thought long and hard about doing this one, as none of the hosts are POC (except Josh but he hardly counts). In the end, the show touches on things that were simply too important not to discuss. Racial injustice, the use of the "n word" in media, why did they make the 70's look like the 50's and how CW is this show on the CW scale?
