Geek Girl Riot is getting fantabulous and talking Birds of Prey and some podcasts we’re loving.
Gettin’ High with Birds of Prey
Birds of Prey and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn has exploded onto screens everywhere, finally giving us a film featuring a team of all women superheroes. Sherin, Day, and Julian are joined by Fantastic Forum’s Ulysses E. Campbell to highlight what they enjoyed about the movie and share why this is a true Harley Quinn story.
We Need to Talk About the Lows of Birds of Prey
Of course, as our Rioters are comic book experts (yeah, we said it), they also break down what didn’t work for them in Birds of Prey. They make some fair points and suggest what could be done better in future movies (and y’all know there are bound to be both future Harley Quinn and BoP movies).
Deep Dives into the World of Podcasts
Monique and Philip jump on to talk about other podcasts (Geek Girl Riot is still the best live show that gets podcasted though, don’t sweat it). Monique is the queen of deep dive podcasts and she tells the others about The 27 Club, Disgraceland, Dissect, and more series you should be listening to…just don’t kill her vibe while she’s talking about ’em.
EXTRA: Birds of Prey take #2
…but we’re not done with Birds of Prey yet! As a lil extra on this episode, Philip jumps on with Sherin to dig even deeper into the film. They break down the story and argue why calling it a “Birds of Prey” movie was completely unnecessary.
