We’re ready to run away on Geek Girl Riot—and our Rioters want you to join in on our escapism. In this remix episode, catch up on what’s on our minds, including the latest pop culture trainwrecks (and we know y’all love those).
Virtual Strip Clubs, Steamy Netflix Flicks, and…Animal Crossing Philip decides to kick off the episode by endorsing talking about the rise of virtual strip clubs. Uhh, yeah. That leads Sherin to discuss Netflix’s steamy romance film 365 Dni. Alex tries to lighten the mood with Animal Talking, the Animal Crossing-themed late night talk show on YouTube.
I May Destroy You’s Brilliance vs. “Who Asked For This?” Sherin shoutouts Michaela Coel’sHBO show I May Destroy You and tells you why it is a heartbreaking but incredible watch. Then our Rioters break down Coel’s recent interview on Vulture, which details the reasons why her show Chewing Gum stopped abruptly after S2. They also talk about The CW’s Batwoman, which announced its new lead following Ruby Rose’s departure. Sherin, Philip, Alex, and Mo then dig into the recent (and performative) name changes of Lady A and The Chicks.
Trainwrecks (because…2020) From playing the Black national anthem before games to changing the Washington football team’s name, the NFL appear to be at least acknowledging the Black Lives Matter movement (except for re-signing Colin Kaepernick). Our Rioters attempt to unwrap all that, leading them into the mess of Kanye’s apparent run for office. If that wasn’t enough of a trainwreck for you, our hosts move onto Will & Jada & August’s entanglement, before closing out with Harper’s Magazine’s beyond ridiculous “cancel cancel culture” letter.
