episode 126: FFR 126: Entertainment News II - The Reckoning

Anita, Ebony and Carolyn are back with another Entertainment News roundup. What’s up for discussion today? The Snyder Cut of Justice League is coming (yikes)! E3 is cancelled, but do we even need it anymore? And Joe Biden is taking the black vote for granted. Commiserate with us as we wade through the mostly bad (and somewhat absurd) of recent news, with at least one bit of good news for fans of a particular cancelled Netflix favorite.


CW: discussion of suicide during segment on Hana Kimura’s recent death. Time stamp located below.
