Black Girl Nerds is one of my favorite sites on the internet (and Twitter handles to follow!). Jamie Broadnax, the founder and managing editor of the site, is executive producing a 9-episode mini-series called Misty Knight’s Uninformed Afro. It will focus on black women superheroes! Jamie and Stephanie Williams (The Lemonade Show) are your hosts. Jamie says:
“I wanted to take podcasting to another level with having a fun, yet informative, discussion about Black superheroines. We incorporate media clips as well as reference specific comic issues with titles, dates, and creators behind each book discussed. We’re here to shed light on these women in a way that hasn’t quite been done before.”
You might be familiar with Storm, but do you know who Misty Knight, Monica Rambeau, Amanda Waller, Vixen, and the Dora Milaje are? You’re going to find out with Jamie and Stephanie! The podcast can be found on Soundcloud, iTunes, Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. There’s also an official website.

The first episode is already up, and this is a series you don’t want to miss! One episode will be released per week.
