Geek Girl Riot is getting super-sized with Ms. Marvel and scoring some three-pointers with Netflix’s Hustle. But first, we’re flying our PRIDE flags high and sharing our fave queer YA reads.

Sam kicks off the show by telling Sherin all about her fave YA reads that celebrate queer love & life—she’s a kid lit publicist at Penguin Random House Canada (as well as a Rioter & an idobi superstar) so she knows what she’s talking about. Get ready to update your TBR lists!

Julian jumps on with Sherin to talk about Hustle, the new Netflix film starring Adam Sandler, Queen Latifah, and just about every basketball legend you can think of. Sherin says, “This is a classic basketball movie with good feels. Nice pacing, nice flow, and a nice warm beating heart.” Hustle is out today—and our Rioters are about to get you fired up & ready to binge-watch. (read Julian’s review)

“Hustle is solid storytelling in a character piece that flexes on its love for the game.”
–Sherin Nicole

Ms. Marvel
It’s the series we’ve all been waiting for: Ms. Marvel debuts today on Disney+, which means Sherin and Julian put on their capes and cheer for the one, the only, Kamala Khan! They give you a spoiler-free teaser for the show and get you headed straight to Disney+ (after you finish listening to GGR, of course). (read Sherin’s review + Julian’s review)
