Geek Girl Riot’s serving up a healthy dose of sci-fi with The Expanse + an interview with Cas Anvar, plus a pinch of fantasy horror with the Wayward Sisters Anthology + an interview with editor Allison O’Toole!
First we chat with Cas Anvar ofThe Expanse and then we explore his show all the way up to season three. The Syfy series is blowing our minds with every new episode and Cas, who plays the pilot Alex Kamal, tells us all about what’s next in the story (and talks chocolate vs. popcorn). Cas chats to Sherin about working on such a diverse show, what it means to see a brown hero in space, and the science behind the series’ creation. Then Sherin, Philip, and Alex get their geek on over The Expanse to give you the lowdown on season 3 and why you need to be watching it.
To close us out, Sam chats with Allison O’Toole, the editor behind the Wayward Sisters Anthology. The collection celebrates female and non-binary monsters—from mermaids to vengeance demons—created by 38 intersectional creators who identify as women or gender-nonconforming. Allison talks putting together such a complex project, what she’s working on next, and her favorite terrifying novels + movies (see the list below!).
The Expanseairs on Syfy every Wednesday night (make sure to watch live to help get the show renewed!). You can pick up the Wayward Sisters Anthologyhere.
