Nerdmudgeon: Black Panther

Nerdmudgeon: Earth's Mightiest Podcast!

We had already scheduled the "Black Panther" episode of the Nerdmudgeon podcast months ago, well before the recent tragic loss of lead actor Chadwick Boseman. His death really punched me in the gut, and I'm not ready to think about who will take what role in what films he might have been in. I just want to take the time to appreciate the wonderful performances he gave us, like this one.

Give it a listen here and thank you, Mr. Boseman, for sharing your wonderful gifts with all of us.

For your listening pleasure, over the previous two weeks we also released our reviews of "Spider-Man: Homecoming" and "Captain America: Civil War".

Thanks for indulging our Pandemic Project, I hope you give it a chance and please, let us know what you think of the show!
