The latest Geek Girl Riot dives into all things Julie and the Phantoms + I’m Thinking of Ending Things, before throwing it back to some segments on podcast love + friendship love.
Julie and the Phantoms + I’m Thinking of Ending Things
Netflix is delivering some more streaming goodness. First, Sherin and Alex get you hyped for Julie and the Phantoms, which is out tomorrow. It has everything you need for a party on your screen—musical numbers, pop punk dudes, a wicked ghost storyline, and plenty of heart. Then our Rioters get into a different kind of story: Charlie Kaufman’s I’m Thinking of Ending Things, which tells a twisted tale of the end of a relationship…or so it seems. This film is so layered and weird and creepy you’re gonna have to see it for yourself—let our hosts tell you why.
Deep Dives into Podcasts
Monique and Philip hop on to talk about some other podcasts they’re loving (Geek Girl Riot is still no. 1, don’t worry). Monique takes a deep dive into the podcasting world, shouting out The 27 Club, Disgraceland, Dissect, and more series you should be listening to…just don’t kill her vibe while she’s giving you the lowdown.
Spreading the Love During These Heavy Times
Time for another Rioter costume-change! Soma, Sherin, Kat, and Philip now take over the mic to close us out with some stories of friendship and love. They share sweet tales of finding kinship through fandom, coping during the pandemic, and putting some good into the world.
