Put on your finest loungewear and join Geek Girl Riot for some piping hot tea about Bridgerton S2 and the latest pop culture trainwrecks.
Trainwrecks Part 1: The Racism Track
Sherin and Alex have had enough of the world’s foolishness so they’re here to make fun of it (and talk some damn good sense). They get into Zoë Kravitz being told she was too “urban” to play Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises, before tearing apart the infamous review of Turning Red that claims it’s unrelatable. They close out this segment by sharing the recent story about Ryan Coogler, who is definitely not a bank robber.
Trainwrecks Part 2: The Mental Health & Ridiculousness Track
We need to talk about Kanye. No matter your opinion of him or his ex-wife Kim Kardashian, something needs to be done about the current threats Kanye is making. Sherin and Alex break it down and talk about why mental health matters.
Then they declare their love for sweatpants and compression tights, before imagining a world where Grimes was in the running to direct Dune. They finish up this round of trainwrecks by shaking their heads in unison at Jane Campion’s recent speech-making.
Dear listeners, we know you’re on the edge of your seat waiting for Bridgerton S2 to grace Netflix on Friday, which is why the ladies Bearmont and Whimsnicole have arrived with tongues sharpened and wits at the ready.
