It's been a heavy couple weeks-- months?-- and as such, Hosts Dope KNife and Linqua Franqa take this episode to indulge in some nerdy escapism, detailing the relationship between nerd culture, from comic books to video games to science fiction, and Hip Hop, touching upon the roots of all this in afrofuturist aesthetics and philosophy. Along the way, they speak with nerdcore rap icon MegaRan about his unique niche, and the importance of Black representation, within video game subculture. And they wrap up the week with a survey of nerdiness within Hip Hop stylings from Wu Tang to the late MF Doom and beyond.
