Geek Girl Riot had so much fun at Outpost Con over the weekend that we just had to share our live n’ Riotous chat with you! And we’re heading into deep space for a very special Cornucopia of Space Flavored Goodness from TV and Films (and also the Not So Tasty Stuff).

Yes! Space. Deep Space (with and echo) and Oh No! Space Goo
Sherin, Day, Soma, and Philip launch right into the show with the very best + the what-the-hells of space and alien movies. This, naturally, makes them all yell a lot—whether out of sheer joy or sheer disgust. Oh, and don’t forget those bad movies we all can’t help but love.

Oooh, New Frontiers! Ugh, Spaco-xeno-phobia
Next up our Rioters explore the good stuff and the nah, I’m goods of space and alien TV. From beloved shows like Lost in Space and The Expanse to that one Christmas She-Ra special (groan), our Rioters explore all kinds of new (and classic) frontiers. They also call out some of the issues within sci-fi and fantasy that don’t belong in any kind of future.

Questions, Comments, Blackholes, Wormholes, Spaghettification, and Why Do We Love Space so Much!?
Time for some questions of the interstellar kind: Why are we so enchanted with space? Why are blackholes? Is spaghettification better with tomato sauce or a nice alfredo? Our Rioters go quick-fire in this round, giving their reasons why space captivates them so much.
