April 19, 2020

Hey there BNA listeners. I hope you're all doing your best during these difficult times. 

Today we bring to you a different kind of BW episode. Black N Animated was reached out to by Verbum Dei High School, an all boys Catholic, Jesuit, college and career preparatory school in LA. They wanted to hear what we had to say about working in the animation industry and what advice we could give for those in high school still investigating their careers, and college prep.  

Join Bre, Waymond, Lorraine and Neil as they offer some good words of advice and as per usual, get some anime knowledge in there. 

Any youngsters still in high school looking into animation, this is the episode for you!

June 2, 2019

   Hey howdy hey BNA Listeners!

Bre and Way are back this week to chat about the SUPER HERO... STATIC SHOCK, WHOOP WHOOP!  It's almost funny how long it's taken them to talk about this show. WELL THE WAIT IS OVER.  Bre and Way discuss 3 iconic episodes in the series, and discuss their powerful messages involving gun violence, bullying, racisim, and black acceptance.   Static is a show that wasn't afraid to be silly, but also tackle important issues that children should learn about.

They also dive in briefly to the Origin of Static in Milestone Comics and his creator Dwayne McDuffie. 

Come to think of it... maybe it's good it took them a little bit longer to get around to talking about Static. Yesterday, 6/1/19 was the 25 year anniversary of Static Shock! PERFECT TIMING!
