podcast pic (oscars,idris elba, kool-aid)

We have another great live podcast planned today and we've bumped the show up an hour so now you should tune in at 4:00pm/ET.  So what's on tap you ask?  Well, we plan to cover a few topics that we missed in our last podcast and more:

-The Oscars.  We'll make our list of predictions.

-Idris Elba.  Now that he's won a Golden Globe, what does it mean -- if anything -- for his career?

-Half Of A Yellow Sun.  In recent weeks, a "buzz" has been created surrounding a petition against the casting of Thandie Newton in the upcoming film adaptation of this popular book.  Well the creator of that petition, Ashley Akunna, will be joining us to give her reasons for developing it.

Hollywood's Kool-Aid.  Based on this recent post HERE, we'll discuss whether or not it's time to stop chasing after Hollywood for "our stories" and focus more attention on the emerging black indie film scene.  Is it easier said than done?

Monique will also share a sneak peek clip of her interview with Stephen Jackson, the director of David Is Dying.

You can go HERE on Blogtalk Radio to listen.  Don't forget, log into the chat room as well or call in at (347) 215-8777.  See ya at our new time (4:00pm/ET) today!
