We’re mixing things up this week on Geek Girl Riot by playing Russian roulette with our social media feeds. Wish us luck…

Sherin and Alex take a well-earned break from producing structured geeky GGR shows and instead turn to social media to provide the conversation. They take turns looking at what’s going on on their social media feeds to spark a discussion. 

From Tom Holland stepping into the dancing shoes of Fred Astaire to Janelle Monáe’s incredible lineup of Black women writers for her new anthology, our Rioters dig into it all. They also shout out Single All the Way, the new Netflix holiday rom-com that’s got them in their feels, which leads them to a conversation about telling stories full of joy. 

Of course, they can’t go on social media without a rant or two, so listen out for Sherin’s open letter about the 2016 election that still feels all too timely. They also get into the importance of self care and mental health and how we all need to come together.
