20. Black Panther

Big Fat Geek Podcast

Release Date: 03/27/2018

The geeks are joined by friend of the show Moses Uvere to *finally* talk about Black Panther. Born in America, the son of Nigerian parents, Moses has a take on the movie that many in the geekspace may not consider. Things get personal as the four men take a deep dive into the superhero film that has blown through box office expectations and what it means to black Americans and those of African heritage.
