Geek Girl Riot is back! We chat with Malcolm D. Lee all about The Best Man: The Final Chapters, as well as diving into Joy Revolution and some entertainment news.

Joy Revolution + Kaleidoscope
Sherin and Alex ring in the first GGR of 2023 by spreading some joy—specifically Joy Revolution, Nicola Yoon & David Yoon’s YA imprint dedicated to BIPOC love stories. Sherin tells Alex all about the first two releases, Highly Suspicious and Unfairly Cute by Talia Hibbert and Queen Bee by Amalie Howard, which should be immediately added to your TBR lists.

“Highly Suspicious and Unfairly Cute is a funny, quirky, mouthy, sparkling Young Adult love story…with an acute observational eye for humanity and our idiosyncrasies—but also for dialogue that’s like poppin’ champagne. It just sparkles.”–Sherin Nicole

They round off the segment by showing some love to Kaleidoscope, Netflix’s new heist series with a unique jigsaw-style format. Along the way, they dive into the recent streaming news & cancelations.

Malcolm D. Lee + The Best Man: The Final Chapters
The wonderful writer/director Malcolm D. Lee joins us to talk about The Best Man: The Final Chapters, Peacock’s first original project to make it onto Nielsen’s Top 10 streaming rankings! He chats with Sherin about the impact of The Best Man franchise, taking the characters through different chapters in their lives, and telling stories that resonate. 

Storytelling + Shenanigans
Sherin and Alex take back over to discuss the bizarre reactions the Internet has been serving up lately and why the art of storytelling has been lost on some audiences. This apparent need for nonsense leads them to discuss the latest chicanery in US politics and why—even if all the memes make you giggle—the current mess is no laughing matter.
