Meet Jesal and Rochard. We are the Transatlantic Rebels.

In Episode 40, we talk about something topical and controversial... Captain America.

So Rochard (comic book expert) teaches Jesal (total novice) about what the hell is going on with some bloke called Nick Spencer and the creative decisions being taken by Marvel with regards to Captain America...

So within the comic books, he's been unveiled as a part of Hydra! He's staying well Hydra-ted! He's one of these punchable Alt-Right dudes!! He's in the Trump Cabinet!! So Captain America is like a Nazi or something? WTF IS HAPPENING!!!

It's a fascinating discussion, and the final third is all about #FakeNews and social media. We will probably upset everyone.

Jesal is from the UK, and Rochard is from America. We like to talk in depth about albums, films, TV shows and books.

Rochard has a background in TV, acting, writing and many other areas of art creation. Jesal has a background in music: DJ, producer, artist, critic and other stuff.

Enjoy!

Meet Jesal and Rochard. We are the Transatlantic Rebels.

In Episode 39, we take a retrospective look at three pivotal albums by those pesky Oxford rockers, Radiohead.

There are discussions on "The Bends" (1995); "OK Computer" (1997); and "Kid A" (2000).

It's a controversial look at three oft-revered albums, and it may well ruffle a few feathers. "OK Computer" is one of Jesal's favourite albums ever and it turns 20 soon.

In Episode 38, we have a very special guest called Rita Morar and we take a look at one of her favourite albums ever: "Late Registration" (2005) by Kanye West.

In a lively discussion, we highlight our favourite songs from his second LP; debate about whether this may just be Yeezy's best album ever; and Rita opens up about the line that inspired her to take up singing again after a hiatus.

In Episode 37, we take a look at the complete works of Lupe Fiasco (one of our favourite rappers).

Lupe is an artist who inspires much debate, and this episode is no different. It's a lively look at all his albums thus far, and broader discussion about his role within the genre.
