This Week In Nerd News, Victoria and Keith begin with Judas and the Black Messiah, and the angering fact that 1) not much has changed, and 2) little is taught about Fred Hampton in school, and most Black people have to learn through alternative means or not at all. How well will Judas and the Black Messiah do at putting his story at the forefront of the American consciousness? Will it do for Fred Hampton and the Rainbow Coalition what Watchman did for the Tulsa Massacre?
Also, will history repeat itself with a live-action Avatar: The Last Airbender? The original creators pull out of the Netflix adaptation due to creative differences and the potential reasons behind it. Plus, Victoria and Keith discuss DC layoffs, and the war of capitalism that is Apple and Google versus Epic games.
