Hard NOC Life with Shawn Keith return from a brief hiatus to share what’s Nerd Poppin’ this week.
This week, Keith reveals what it was like watching Crazy Rich Asians on opening night with a theater full of non-Asians (1:00) and why Michelle Yeoh deserves an Oscar nomination to make up for being snubbed for Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon in 2001 (3:00). Shawn and Keith then take a deep dive in some of the discourse around Crazy Rich Asians (10:00) and why folks are trying to get a #GoldOpen for the John Cho thriller Searching (18:00). Then they celebrate Kelly Marie Tran’s amazing New York Times editorial (22:00), N.K. Jemisin’s equally amazing Hugo Award acceptance speech (24:30), and the announcement that Eve Ewing will be writing Ironheart, aka Riri Williams, for Marvel (27:30). Finally, they share their faves of the week, including HBO renewing Random Acts of Flyness and Bryan Edward Hill’s upcoming Batman and the Outsiders comic for DC (30:00).
