About this Episode

On this episode of Mad Unreal we unpack the recent news that Ta-Nehisi Coates will write the upcoming J.J. Abrams Superman film. The announcement brought to mind a recurring question: should a BIPOC artist have the freedom to create stories that don’t focus on BIPOC heroes? Get ready for an insightful Mad Unreal discussion that interrogates the boundaries often placed around Black art.

Mad Unreal focuses on the films and characters we find beautifully unreal, from Marvel to Star Wars, James Bond, BIPOC heroes, super women, and dope villains. Hosted by Arthur Turnbull and Isaac Perry, you can find the show on iTunes, Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, and Spotify.
