Who’s ready for a remix reload Geek Girl Riotfeaturing two of your fave topics? We revisit some of 2021’s biggest trainwrecks, before ringing that spoiler siren and getting into Invincible.
Trainwrecks Round #1 Hey 2021, you good? This year keeps serving up trainwrecks…which means our Rioters have gotta call ’em out. Sherin and Alex are joined by idobi’s Aud Lew to talk Cinnamon Shrimp Toast, bizarre Medium articles, Prince William’s “new” Black friend, and NBC’s representation mess-up.
Trainwrecks Round #2 Philip jumps on with Sherin and Alex to dig into some of wackiest news the world has to offer. Our Heroic Trio take a look at Staples Center’s nonsensical new rules, before discussing Samoa’s ridiculously long election (that has finally led to the country’sfirst woman prime minister!), and cheering on a very hungry raven. Yup.
Parker Lewis Can’t Lose but Mark Grayson Stays Slipping Amazon Prime’sInvincible has been blowing our minds and making us cuddle our unicorn plushies for comfort BUT we adore it! Whew!Sherin, Julian, Alice, Mae, and Philip dive into the hyper-violent superhero action and break down the social commentary that makes the show so enthralling. They also call out the lack of depth in the lead characters’ cultural backgrounds. With that said, our Rioters think this series has the world building and storylines to be a hit for several more seasons—keep listening to find out why.
