Need an escape from the election dumpster fire? Geek Girl Riot is here to distract, entertain, and supply you with a new binge-list.

All Anime, All the Time
Our dynamic duo Sherin and Julian kick off the show by talking all things anime. They share their love of the new anime film Lupin III: The First and why it’s a great addition to the Lupin universe (and a great intro for new fans too). They also squeal in excitement over Kimetsu No Yuigon: Mugen Train, coming to steal your heart next year. Then Julian celebrates Digimon Adventure, before the duo talk about the Webtoons x Crunchyroll team up.

Diving into Lovecraft Country
Lovecraft Country has been enthralling & terrifying us all season long and now our Rioters are here to dissect it some more. They talk about the parts they love, what they’d like to see explored next, and the differences between critique and criticism for clickbait (sometimes it’s okay to just say something is not for you).

More Comics + Books to Obsess Over
To close us out, Sherin and Julian share some more things they’ve been loving lately, including One Piece’s near-1000 chapter extravaganza and the thrilling world of Mexican Gothic by Sylvia Moreno-Garcia. They also celebrate Julian’s new story ‘No Sign of the Enemy’ in DC Comics’ Legend of the Swamp Thing: Halloween Spectacular #1, which is out now! (We’re so proud, he’s killing it!)
