The Nerd Lys – Episode 173 – Ode to a King

In this episode, we talk about all the news out of DC Fandome (The Suicide Squad, The Batman, etc.) and a game by the makers of Oxenfree called Afterparty.  We also pay our respects to Chadwick Boseman.

Chadwick Boseman

We were saddened to learn that Chadwick Boseman (star of Black Panther, 42, Marshall and Da 5 Bloods) passed away on Friday, August 28th after his battle with colon cancer. He left an indelible mark on pop culture and the lives of everyone he touched with his work and his art. Countless tributes have been spread throughout social media, including a touching write-up by Black Panther director Ryan Coogler which you can find here. He was an incredible light for everyone around him, and an inspiration to us via his roles on screen and how he carried himself in the public eye.
