HAPPY PRIDE! We are so excited to celebrate Pride this month, not only because it's fucking PRIDE, it's also Moni's first pride as an out and proud asexual person! Welcome to the queer club, Moni! In this episode, we're talking alllll about Moni's coming out story and how she's perceived herself for all of her life. It's really fascinating to hear this from someone who realised their identity at 36 years of age. Congratulations, Moni, on figuring your shit out! We also talk about appearances and genitals, because what kind of episode would it be if we didn't? It's inappropriate and incredible, exactly how we like it. This year has been one of self-discovery for many. We've actually had quite a few people mention that Geek Herring has gotten way gayer over the years we've been doing this -- and also that Geek Herring makes you gay*. *Well, sure. We'll take it! What a weird badge of honour. Celebrating pride for both of us has been really different experiences. Amanda's been celebrating over 17 Prides in some way or another and Moni's never been to a Pride parade in her life. We're both valid for however we celebrate and recognise Pride! Because Pride matters. Pride is an important event in the LGBTQIA2+ community. We've lost so much - from the AIDs crisis, homophobia, transphobia, biphobia, murders, and all that horrible stuff of humanity. It's no wonder there are so many people, like Moni, who haven't come out until later in life. We didn't have the role models or the safety to come out like Gen Z does, now. Finally, we want you to know that no matter how old you are, no matter how out you are, and no matter who you are: you matter. You are valid. Your identity is valid. This world just needs a bit more gosh darn love! Check Out Geek Herring! Follow Geek Herring on Twitch!!

Geek Girl in the News looks at the awesome or not so awesome news that will make you go either: "YAY" or "OMG I can't believe that." The latest and greatest geek girl news from May 2021 covers Gen Z being badass, celebrity struggles with mental health, snowflake gamers and the male gaze, an update on the Rosario Dawson anti-trans lawsuit, and some good news from Twitch! We start by celebrating the incredibly talented Madisen Cordell who won an Amazon scholorship to pursue computer science.... after starting to learn it only last summer! This story is so wholesome and inspiring; Madisen, you'll go so far!! Congratulations! Then we're talking about the newest grrl riot punk band: The Linda Lindas. These tweens took a racist, sexist comment from a boy in their class and wrote the literal baddest assiest song about it. Ever. RACIST SEXIST BOY!!! We stan you, Linda Lindas!! Keep it coming! Next, we're talking about Naomi Osaka's statement and eventual withdrawal from the French Open due to her mental health. She decided it was in the interest of her mental health not to participate in post-tournament interviews, but the archaic tennis federation rules deemed it appropriate to issue a $15k fine. Seriously? Mental health before all else! We're proud of you, Naomi! And hope you kick collaborative ass in changing the rules! And it's not just women who are opening up about their mental health problems. Even male celebrity faves like Ryan Reynolds who seemingly have it ALL can and do struggle with mental health issues. It's so, so, so important for straight, cis, white men to open up about their mental health issues in order to combat the stigma of mental health. Thank you, Ryan! Then we have a bit of a laugh about the absolute snowflake of a gamer who decided that Aloy, in the sequel to Horizon Zero Dawn, looks too masculine. Um, fuck away off and get in the sea! With an update to a past geek girl in the news episode, courts have dismissed the anti-trans assault lawsuit against Rosario Dawson. This is really a lose-lose situation. Either accusor Dedrek Finley is lying and caused some irreparable damage to Dawson's career and the validity of anti-trans assault, or Dawson is lying and used her fame and finances to make the situation go away. Well fuck. But in some excellent news, Twitch has finally - finally - given us 350 new identity tags on the gaming platform! The long-anticipated trans tag is here! And along with it are tags about sexuality, gender, race, nationality, disability, and more. THANK YOU TWITCH. And maybe in some even more unprecedented updates... Twitch apologised for getting this wrong, stating that they really should have done this sooner. What do YOU think about these news stories? We'd love your take! Let us know in the comments of wherever you see this episode!

Self care. It's a hot topic right now, and not without good reason. It's an essential practice for our health - but as geeks, what's best for us? Let's face it. All those Insta posts about self care being baths, yoga, and meditation are bullshit. Like okay, Karen, if that's you, you do you. But that's not all self care is. Self care is any activity that lets your body and, maybe more importantly, your mind relax. This week, we're talking about the self care practices that we, as geeks, business owners, podcast hosts, and Twitch streamers do regularly. From creating a schedule and routine to reading cosy books to streaming on Twitch. The most important message is that your self care can look like whatever you want it to. Don't let anyone else dictate what your self care should look like. Do what makes YOU happy. What are your favourite ways to practice self care?

Surviving R. Kelly is a documentary about the literal decades of abuse from the rapper - and the total lack of prosecution. This is our review of the 6-part documentary of horrors. Content Warning: This entire episode deals with sensitive topics. Sexual assault, abuse, pedophilia, child pornography, pornography, and more. Please protect yourselves, listeners. If these topics are too heavy for you right now, please check out another episode of Geek Herring After watching Surviving R. Kelly, we can say with 100% certainty that Robert Kelly is indisputably a piece of shit. We witness in this documentary Robert's interest in young girls start way too early in his life. It's all come out about his relationship and marriage to Alliyah - when she was only 15 fucking years old and he was 24!? But that's nowhere near where these decades of abuse ends. It's absolutely heartbreaking to watch these girls and young women be seduced by this master manipulator for years. Even when women came forward about his abuses, Robert "somehow" seems to avoid any jail time. Spoilers: he just makes too much money for the record company. So naturally, he can do whatever he wants - including assaulting young girls. We also talk about how everyone in his life is claiming total ignorance and innocence to his crimes - and we call absolute fucking bullshit. Listen to this episode to find out more!

The Falcon and The Winter Soldier is one of the most iconic and important watches of our modern times. Let's talk about why! ** THIS EPISODE IS FULL OF SPOILERS OF THE FALCON AND THE WINTER SOLDIER SEASON 1 ** Please enjoy Amanda's super awesome and very incoherent explanation and summary of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier. We don't want to put toooo too much in these shownotes, because spoilers, but to sum up: Defund the police. Support mental health, PTSD, and military vets. Black Lives Matter. Mediation should always be the first course of action. Bucky Barnes and Sam Wilson are the best and we'd watch them paint a room together, What did YOU think of this epic show?

Geek Girl in the News looks at the awesome or not so awesome news that will make you go either: "YAY" or "OMG I can't believe that." The latest and greatest geek girl news from April 2021 covers the EFL's first female referee, Japan's first ever eSports gym, NFTs and the Disaster Girl meme, Sony's partnership with Discord, Disney+ announcement of Ironheart, Marvel's Phase 5 trailer drop (omg!), Ryan Reynolds demanding a bisexual Deadpool, and the revealed identity of Ratchet & Clank's femme fatale! We're so excited to have a pretty upbeat month of news this month! First, we're diving into sports, thanks to Thom (of course) who sent us this article about Rebecca Welch, the first female referee for the English Football League. What a fab move for the EFL, a fab promotion for Welch, and a step forward for women in football. We love to see it! Thom also sent us our next article about Japan's first eSports gym opening up in Tokyo. Picture a regular gym: you go, train on all the machines, even have the opportunity for personal training. That's EXACTLY what an eSports gym is - except you're not working out your legs, you're working out your ESPORTS muscles. And we're HERE for this, how dang cool!? What do you know about NFTs? Amanda knows nothing, even after Moni and Twitch chat tried to explain it. But she doesn't have to understand what they're about to know that the Disaster Meme just made Zoe Roth $500k. She's paying off her college loans and donating the rest to charity. AMAZING! We're also super excited about Sony's partnership with Discord. This is such a win-win! Discord needs some more financial backing, especially after the year it's had, and Sony needs some voice cross-chat integration for the Playstation. Excited to see what happens here! Geek Herring listener, FlameFlash, submitted the next story about the Disney+ announcement of Ironheart! This show sounds absolutely incredible and follows the story of 15 year old genius Black student RiRi Williams on her quest to rebuild IronMan armour for her. RiRi will be played by Dominique Thorne, and it's being written by Chinaka Hodge, another Black woman. We quite literally cannot contain our excitement about this show and all the Black female talent getting pumped into it! We're also SO FUCKING EXCITED about the Marvel Phase 5 release trailer! Literally cannot WAIT for all these films to come out - and so many are this year! YES YES YES to ALL these damn movies! And, staying with Marvel, we are HERE for Ryan Reynolds absolutely begging Marvel to let him play Deadpool as bisexual - he is canon pansexual in the comics, so of course it makes sense! Come on, Marvel! It's about time! And finally, we talk about the new Ratchet & Clank femme fatale character reveal! Thanks to our friend, Ed Nightingale, reporting for Pink News for this article! What do YOU think about these news stories? We'd love your take! Let us know in the comments of wherever you see this episode! In this episode of Geek Girl in the News, we covered these news stories: Rebecca Welch becomes first female referee to be appointed to EFL game ahead of Harrogate Town vs Port Vale (https://www.skysports.com/football/news/11095/12260243/rebecca-welch-to-become-first-female-referee-of-an-efl-game-when-she-takes-charge-of-harrogate-town-vs-port-vale) Japan is opening its first ever esports gym in Tokyo, where people can book 3-hour slots at PCs and pay for coaching from professional gamers (https://www.insider.com/japan-opens-esports-gym-gaming-tokyo-2021-4) The World Knows Her as ‘Disaster Girl.’ She Just Made $500,000 Off the Meme.

Love comes in so many different forms! We're joined by some wonderful Twitch streamers, mods, and Tweeters to talk about love outside the heteronormative experience. This episode is beautiful and emotional and we love it! About Our Guests Ariana is a polyamorous cis woman we know on Twitter (https://twitter.com/missarianaventi) Frazley is an asexual, aromantic transgender woman who streams on Twitch (https://twitch.tv/frazleys) Gemma is a polysexual, polyamorourus cis woman and is our wonderful moderator (https://twitter.com/cdnbookgrrl) Jay is a genderfluid, polymorourus streamer on Twitch (https://twitch.tv/pancakeparty8) Rik is an agender, aromantic gay streamer on Twitch (https://twitch.tv/wortermelon) About Love in Every Form This is our very first roundtable discussion we recorded live on Twitch. We asked some of our lovely friends and fellow streamers to come on and talk about their experiences with love. We learned so much about so many different types of love: polyamory, familial, friendship, no sexual or romantic connections, gay love, straight love, and everything in between. Of course, there were tears. Of course, there was openness and beauty to this conversation. We all learned so much about each other - and maybe even some beauty things about ourselves we didn't previously know. All we know is: this episode is beautiful. Thank you so much, everyone, for sharing pieces of yourselves and speaking so openly about your experiences with love! Check Out Geek Herring! Follow Geek Herring on Twitch!!

The E4 drama It's a Sin is a wonderful and heartbreaking series following a group of gay men living through the height of the AIDS crisis in London. It's a hard watch, for sure, but it's one we think everyone should watch. It's NECESSARY to be aware about what happened to an entire group of people - almost mostly in secret. We went into this knowing it would be sad, but it broke us. WOW. What a show. ** Spoiler Warning ** This whole episode is FULL of spoilers. We talk about our own experiences as young girls living through this period of time ourselves. Of course, we were so far removed from the realities of what was going on. The death, the grief, the loss, and the sheer fact that no one that could do anything about it fucking cared. The series stars 5 gay men in London and Jill - the star of the show. Jill is precious and thrown into a life-changing situation that causes her to care for her friends while learning everything she can about AIDS. The portrayal of STIGMA is so powerful and shocking in It's a Sin. Like this is reality. People didn't know why gay men were dying. They didn't know HOW they were dying. And no one knew how the disease was spread. We didn't know. This show does such a wonderful job of showing and embracing the love and vibrancy of life. Through trauma, through secrecy, through illness. Of course, it's not perfect and it doesn't cover every aspect of this period in time. But It's a Sin does one hell of a job of portraying what reality was like in the 80s and 90s. Hearbreak. Hope. Death. Friendship. Love. Sex. Wow. The level of shame and embarassment portrayed, as well. Feeling like you have to hide who you are from the people you love is just horrible. The show really gives great insight into the reality of gay life. It's sad. Also, we STAN Colin's Mom. She's LEGIT. This whole show is sad. This whole show is incredible. This whole show is ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL WATCHING. Bring tissues.

It doesn't matter how old you are or what your situation is, you're never too old to find yourself. We're delighted to be joined by Twitch streamer, Lizzie, to talk about coming out in her 30s. Amanda also shares her perspective of coming out in the mid 00's. About Our Guest Lizzie is an incredible Twitch streamer, cross-stitcher, and member of our community. We love her so much! It was only a couple of weeks before this episode was recorded that Lizzie came out as "not straight." We thought it would be perfect to celebrate our month of love in February by chatting all things coming out with Lizzie - and with Amanda. This conversation is a lot of fun. We talk about our experiences with coming out, realising we weren't straight, and touch on some of the hate Amanda's received. Thanks Lizzie, so much for being part of this conversation!

Geek Girl in the News looks at the awesome or not so awesome news that will make you go either: "YAY" or "OMG I can't believe that." The latest and greatest geek girl news from March 2021 covers the kidnapping and murder of Sarah Everard, Police Brutality, the Vatican's archaic stance on same-sex marriage, Lil Nas X and his new music video, Montero, the NCAA's ridiculous weight rooms, Peer2Peer.Live - thanks Trans Lifeline!!, SonicFox repping Trans Rights at eSports tournament, Sesame Streets newest Black muppets talking about anti-racism, and Star Wars teases us with Obi-Wan Kenobi news! ** Before we go further, we have a content warnings with timestamps. ** *Sexual Abuse, Assault, Violence, Murder and Police Brutality 6:31 - 17:00 * Like every other person on this planet should be, we are both absolutely outraged and appalled at what happened in the UK at the beginning of March. We started the week off with International Women's Day, but quickly the week soured. Sarah Everard was kidnapped and murdered. By: A POLICE OFFICER. Yep. Wish we could say we're shocked but.... This has obviously spared a renewed sharing of the #MeToo movement, sharing our own stories of sexual abuse and assault, and even more incredulity of the actual audacity of men. But that's not all! A vigil being held in Sarah's honour was condemned by Home Secretary Priti Patel 👿 - but when, of course, it went ahead anyways, what happened? YOU GUESS IT. Police brutality. A peaceful vigil for a woman kidnapped and murdered.... turned into a storm of violence. Honestly, all cops are bastards. And we fucking mean that. It's a systemic and systematic problem that needsd to be dismantled from the outside, yes, but even more from the inside. We also talk about the Vatican's assinine and disgusting assertation that same-sex relationships are sin. Tired of this. Let's move on, thanks. Grateful for Lil Nas X being fucking unreal with his new music video for Montero. If you haven't seen it - stop what you're doing and watch it right now thank you very much. This video is transcendant. And we need more Lil Nas X all the fucking time. Next up - NCAA's royal fuuuuuck up. It's a big and honestly totally avoidable bout of sexism. Let's do better, mmkay? We're APPLAUDING Trans Lifeline for stepping up and creating Peer2Peer (https://peer2peer.live/) to bring gender identity, race, religion, and disability tags to Twitch --- doing in seemingly no time what Twitch is just refusing to do. Kudos and THANK YOU Trans Lifeline! Other stories this month: SonicFox's stands for trans rights at Mortal Kombat tournament, Sesame Street getting anti-racist, and cast releases for Obi-Wan Kenobi!

In one of our most emotional episodes to date, we talk about why we can no longer support the Harry Potter franchise because of JK Rowling's hateful transphobic agenda. This is our explanation and our break-up. This episode is emotional, heartfelt, and raw. We cry, we rant, we talk about why it's more important to support and love our trans friends and trans rights than to continue pouring love into a franchise that doesn't love everyone. It's no longer a safe haven. It's no longer a place you can be yourself. If you're breaking up with the Wizarding World, too, we understand what you're going through. If you're trans and you're feeling justifiably attacked by Rowling's vitriol, you are valid, you are loved, and you are always welcome with us. This episode is conveniently coming out during Trans Visibility Week. We stand with you yesterday, now, and always. Trans rights are human rights. Trans women are women. Trans men are men.

Loving the skin you're in doesn't always come easy. Sometimes it comes with daily affirmations, doing things for yourself, and accepting that somedays, body neutrality is the place you'll be in that day. FrankthePegasus joins us for this intimate, inspiring, and hilarious episode about body positivity. About Frank the Pegasus Frank the Pegasus is a full-time content creator on Twitch and YouTube. She focuses on on sex positivity, body acceptance, and mental health advocacy! She's been streaming for almost 5 years, is super queer, and is a big lover of simulation and collection games. Fank and Monika geek out for a really long time about birds and plants. It's incredible. You're welcome. Geeking about about loving ourselves is so cool, honestly. We talked about the importance of doing things for YOU, that light YOU up and make YOU feel good - like seriously, friends, when's the last time you prioritised YOURSELF!? Tell us the truth! How absolutely sick are you of those bullshit fatphobic stereotypes we get from the media? Because we're furious about them. It's exhausting watching fat bodies be protrayed as evil, lazy, unkempt and unclean, and a whole host of other stereotypes. We can do better than this. Frank's best advice? Take care of yourself because you love yourself!!! It seems like such a simple concept, but we all know it's easier said than done. What do you do for yourself just to show you that you love you? That's a lot of yous but we really wanna know! A huuuuge topic of discussion here is removing the value you give to society from the way you look. You are more than your looks, you're more than your body, you're more than face. You don't owe society or anyone for that matter anything. And your value is NOT ABOUT how you look. We promise you that! Have you ever practiced Positive Body Affirmations? Frank says they're one of her daily rituals to remind herself how much she loves the skin she's in. If a positive body affirmation seems too far for you, what about a neutral statement - Frank recommends "I have arms" and we love that! We'd also like to remind you to surround yourself with bodies of all shapes and sizes. This is especially important right now, when we're all living our existence online. Curate your social media feeds, especially the visual based ones like Intsa, to have more body types on there. We read a study once that asked you to scroll through your Insta feed and to count how many posts you passed before you found a body that didn't look like you. If it's more than 10, your feed is simply not diverse enough! Have you ever done an experiment like this? It's a LIFE. CHANGER. Please do it! Frank also wants you to do the things that make your internet experience better. That's not only curating your feed, but it's also choosing not to go on any triggering sites, removing toxic people and words from your timelines and follow lists, and making a point to create a positive environment for yourself. But what about those days on stream when you just don't feel like showing your face? Let's normalise not being on camera. Women are under so much pressure to look a certain way in order to succeed on Twitch, but honestly - why? Like, we don't owe you pretty. We also don't owe you our face all the time. If we're not feeling it, we're just gonna have that camera turned off. We also talk about the importance of body neutrality, which is sooooooooooo gooooooood and something we need to talk about more - it doesn't always have to body positive!! Plus the dangers of SnapChat (for example) filters that completely change the way you look. And most importantly? PLEASE be GENTLE with yourself. You are so, so loved and so valued. What helps you on your bad days? Why on your good days do you feel good? Quotes "If you're listening to this and the only reason you play games is to enjoy a game, that's a good enough reason to play a game." "If your feed is lacking fat bodies, it's hard for you to normalise fat bodies. Get more fat bodies on your feed." "All I want to do is accept the body that I'm in and accept it as the meat sack that is carrying me through my life." "Even if you don't love yourself, you are loved. Sometimes putting confidence in somebody else's love of you is the thing that helps you get through that day. You love them and you trust them, so they can't be wrong."

What is grief if not love preserving? ** THIS EPISODE IS FULL OF SPOILERS OF WANDAVISION SEASON 1 ** WandaVision is a heartbreaking story following Wanda's experience with grief. We see throughout the season glimpses into her life and just how much trauma this one woman has endured. It's a lot. It's sad. And, we dunno about you, but we feel more connected to Wanda and Vision than ever, ever before. We talk about those first three episodes - you know, those 1950s/60s/70s style ones, based on Dick Van Dyke, Bewitched, I Dream of Jeanie, and the Brady Bunch. What did we think of them? Well, what did YOU think of them? These three episodes are definitely the most controversial of the entire series - you either LOVE them or HATE them. Moni? They were a big nope. Amanda? Episodes 1 and 2 were super, but 3 was triggering and traumatic AF. No thanks. We also gush about our love of the penultimate episode, ep 8, that looks back at alll the shit our beloved Wanda has gone through in her life. We wanna keep these notes relatively spoiler free, unlike this episode, so... we stopping here. Tell us what YOU think about WandaVision! Check Out Geek Herring! Follow Geek Herring on Twitch!!

Geek Girl in the News looks at the awesome or not so awesome news that will make you go either: "YAY" or "OMG I can't believe that." The latest and greatest geek girl news from February 2021 covers the abuse allegations gainst Marilyn Manson and Joss Whedon, racism in the World of Warcraft raiding community, a complete lack of diversity - STILL - in Hollywood's Golden Globes, Gina Carano being held accountable for her actions and dropped from Disney, Lucasfilm, and her Publicist, The Last of Us actors REVEALED, and Henry Cavill's SHOCK new role! ** Before we go further, we have two content warnings with timestamps. ** Sexual Abuse, Assault, and Domestic Violence 4:30 - 28:08 Violent Racism in Gaming 28:30 - 35:51 Our first story is about the multitude of women coming forward with accusations of abuse and assault at the hand of Brian Warner, AKA Marilyn Manson. Evan Rachel Wood finally disclosed the name of her abuser, Brian Warner, on her Instagram account, describing what equates to domination, psychological and sexual abuse, and domestic violence. Amber Heard confirms Wood's claims by remembering an interview Manson did back in 2008 where he details calling Wood 158 times one day and describes fantasising about physically assaulting her. Since Wood's revelation, 15 other women have come forward (so far) with allegations against the metal musician. Did Manson get away with his open statements of abuse because he is a shock artist? Maybe we didn't take it seriously because was it real or was it all an act? Whatever the reason it went on for so long was, it's out in the open now and we hope it won't be brushed back under the rug. Like our next story focused on the abuse allegations at the hands of creator Joss Whedon. Charisma Carpenter who played Cordelia on Whedon's hit shows, Buffy and Angel, released a statement detailing the abuse she faced from the director. She's been publically supported by most of the cast to varying degrees. And further news has come out that younger actress Michelle Tractenburg, who played Dawn Summers, was not allowed to be alone in the room with Whedon. Yikes forever. Hopefully these Whedon abuse allegations are too public to be pushed back under the rug now. Next, we're talking about the rampant and violent racism that's perpetuated in World of Warcraft, especially some of the top NI raiding guilds. Screenshots of chat logs with violent racist language appeared on Reddit showing the truth of what's going on behind the scenes. But it's not just behind the scenes, it's been disclosed that in raiding applications, questions are posed that essentially state in order to be on the team, you need to be okay with violent racist language (and preferably participate in that, too). It's time we stop breeding these racist gaming cultures within Warcraft - and other MMOs. We need to take a hard stance against this, call out this violence, and hold perpetrators accountable for their actions. Then, to absolutely no one's surprise, the Golden Globes committee is facing backlash again about a lack of diversity on their board. Not to mention a lack of diversity in their nomiations! This is getting EXHAUSTING, white Hollywood. The rest of us want to celebrate BIPOC in film and TV, can you get a mitt and get in the game? Thanks. But in a bid of good news, Disney and LucasFilm have held Gina Carano, known for her role as Cara Dune in The Mandalorian, accountable for her absolutely toxic bullshit garbage she spouted on Twitter. We're not going to repeat it here, but THANK YOU to these companies for setting a precedent that this behaviour will not be tolerated. We're ending the episode with some GREAT news! Our current faves Pedro Pascal (The Mandalorian) and Bella Ramsey (Game of Thrones) are teaming up as Joel and Ellie from The Last of Us! HBO are creating a live-action TV show based on the best-selling game of all time. No news of a release yet but we are fucking HERE for it. Last, but definitely not least, Amanda's biggest hearthrob, Henry Cavill, teased us with an Instagram photo of him in a makeup chair holding a new script. Yes, it was blurry, but since when does that stop the internet?! The internet sleuths were out in full fucking force and have (hopefully!) successfully deduced that Mr Cavill seems to be making an appearance in a forthcoming Mass Effect live action.

The Queen's Gambit took Netflix by storm when it released in late 2020. Finally, something to distract us from the shitshow that was the worst year ever! It was smart, sassy, addictive, and made chess cool again. Like, did you know that chess sales rose significantly because of how popular The Queen's Gambit was? Both of us absolutely loved this show. We thought the characters were perfect - and perfectly cast - and that the plot was intriguing and definitely captivating. We actually thought it was based on a true story, that's how fab it was! If you haven't seen it yet, a little Cole's Notes summary: We follow Beth Harmon after she's been orphaned at 9 years old. She ends up at a very strict orphanage where she makes friends, gets hooked on focus drugs, and learns chess from Mr. Shaibel, the orphanage's caretaker. Beth is good good at chess. So good, she starts competing nearly right away! And we follow her career from orphanage, to adoption, to local competitions, to nationals, to world championships. We love and hate the friends she makes along the way. We love and hate her adoptive mother. Honestly there's just so much about this show. It's incredible. It's honest. It's thrilling. It's about friendship. It's about family. It's about addiction. It's about loneliness. It's about love. It's about competition. It's about chasing happiness. We get deep into it in this episode. And end by saying: if you haven't seen The Queen's Gambit yet - what the hell are you waiting for!? Stop what you're doing and go check it out right meow. Check Out Geek Herring!

Like most geeks around the world, we were uber hyped for Wonder Woman 1984 to FINALLY come out. But now that it's out and we've wasted our time watching it... we wish it had stayed unreleased forever. How can one film make you feel so disappointed!? Here's your spoiler warning: Basically spoilers throughout this entire episode which is really just one big long rant. Because how can you talk about one of, if not the WORST, superhero movies ever made without hitting into spoiler territory for the whole thing? Ya can't. In this ode to a shit movie, we really do our best to make the rant humourous (totally unintentional) and think this might be the most entertaining 50 minutes of your entire week. You are WELCOME. The best part of the movie is, very literally, the beginning with young Diana. 11 minutes of greatness. And then... it just goes downhill. All the fucking way downhill until it's rolling around in the mud and getting stuck and can't get it's footing back. So what's wrong with it? In short: Female characters being reduced to appearance, hero worshipping, changing themselves to be someone they're not. GROSS. We are TIRED of this narrative!! Especially in what's supposed to be a superhero movie full of female empowerment. Diana being reduced to a love-sick puppy. The entire theme with Steve is dis-gust-ing and not at ALL the Wonder Woman we've come to know and love, especially after her first movie! We for real-real are not down with this storyline! The Dream Stone just doesn't make sense and how the heck does Max Lord know all about it when two highly intelligent women and scientists and researchers had never heard of it. Let's just leave that there, okay? This makes NO SENSE. Steve posessing some RANDOM AF dude, who doesn't even get a name, and does allll the sex with Diana. Um, hello?? Bodily consent??! Absolutely not okay with this scenario. Okay now they're in Egypt following the cheesiest scene in the history of cheesy scenes. Also, 1940's fighter pilot Steve now knows how to fly 1980's aircraft with NO PROBLEM AT ALL. Okay thennnnn. Gal Gadot's questionable AF heroic save of Egyptian children being "coincidentally" parallel to some Israeli bombinb of the Gaza Strip. GROSS. NOT OKAY. Barbara - Cheetah - the ACTUAL villain is basically just a sidekick to Max Lord. She's not living up to her full potential and it's disappointing AF. Okay so you can see where we're going with this, right!?

This episode is so personal and emotional with both Sascz and Frazley sharing their experiences in transitioning away from their assigned genders at birth. It hasn't been an easy journey with both our guests talking of the emotional and hurtful experiences they've both had. About Translucidity Frazley and Sascz started the podcast Translucidity to talk about all their experiences as transgender people. The podcast is for everyone to learn more about trans issues affecting them and the larger population. Please note, that at the time of recording this episode, Frazley identified as non-binary. But, as gender and sexuality are totally fluid, Frazley recently came out as a trans woman with she/her pronouns. We love you, Frazley! About Gender Identity and Fluidity Sascz and Frazley bring up: when they knew they were trans navigating coming out how gender and sexuality is fluid how they feel now that they've transitioned away from their assigned gender at birth This conversation is so important and empowering. Thank you to both Sascz and Frazley for being so open with us and our audience. We finish this with: Trans rights are human rights. Trans men are men. Trans women are women. Got it? Okay, good.

Geek Girl in the News looks at the awesome or not so awesome news that will make you go either: "YAY" or "OMG I can't believe that." The latest and greatest geek girl news from January 2020 covers the United States Presidential election (hellooooo policy reform and KAMALA HARRIS!), the wild ride that GameStop and Reddit shares have been, Activision Blizzard's diversity hiring policy, and Resident Evil's latest BABE of a vamp! We spend entirely too much time in this week's episode talking about Joe Biden and Kamala Harris's Inauguration Day and everything they've done so far. BUT HONESTLY. After four years of utter horse shit from the previous administration, it's such a breath of fresh fucking air to actually BE ABLE To shout and celebrate. No, they're not perfect. No politician is. We also acknowledge that there are a lot of issues regarding Native land agreements that are not being upheld and that very much should be. But right now, we are breathing a big sigh of relief that the Cheeto in Chief has flown down to Florida where he'll hopefully be held accountable for his actions of the last 4 years. Biden and Harris? We are holding you accountable to all your promises. You've done a lot of good so far in the 13 days you've been in office - let's keep that momentum going and DO EVEN BETTER. Okay, but that's not the only American news making headlines this month! A Reddit user started a subreddit encouraging people to buy stock in GameStop. Amanda's utterly rubbish explanation doesn't do it justice - but honestly this is AMAZING and we all need to know about it. The stock market is not just for old boys and their billions - us normal folk can play the system and make some money and eat the rich in the process. We also talk about Activision Blizzard's bizarre statement when it comes to interviewing diverse candidates. One of their lawyers claimed that applying the Rooney Rule (interviewing ONE diverse candidate for each role) is impossible. Insert major eye roll here. After some serious and well deserved backlash, President and COO Daniel Alegre released a statement that not only was that lawyer incorrectly quoted, they do, in fact, AGGESSIVELY hire diversly. Calm down, there, Dan. Finally, we talk about all the fans losing their absolute shit over Resident Evil Village's latest lady of the night. Lady Dimitrescu is the tallest vampire babe the franchise has probably ever seen, clocking in at nearly 10 (yes 10) feet tall. Yeowzer! We see her just at the end of the RE Demo that's available on PS5 and that Monika is absolutely going to play live on stream soon! What do YOU think about these news stories? We'd love your take!

Tabletop RPGs are historically the territory of cis, white men, full of the types of issues that cause concern to many groups of people. That's why it's time to change the narrative surrounding these games, making them a more welcoming, acceptable, and inclusive environment. We're joined by community and convention organisaer, Kate Bullock, who talks about how she's creating safer spaces within the TTRPG community. About Kate Bullock Kate Bullock is a community and convention organizer with a passion for creating safer and more inclusive spaces within the TTRPG community. She’s one of the main organizers of Breakout Gaming Convention, community manager for Magpie Games, co-owner of Unicorn Motorcycle Games, and the outgoing president of the Indie Game Developer Network. You can find her blog, Bluestocking’s Organic Gaming (http://www.bluestockings.ca/), filled with in depth analyses of the gaming community and what we can do to make it better. Kate is a consultant for safety and inclusion in the RPG world, as well as a content editor for RPGs to ensure they meet industry standards around inclusion and safety. You can find her games Crossroads Carnival, Savior, Remember Me, and more on drivethru, or see her work in Atlas Animalia, Flames of Freedom, and After the War. About Changing the Tabletop Narrative Kate Bullock joins us to talk about her work in changing the common racist and misogynistic narratives that are so often found in tabletop roleplaying games. This is a challenging, male-dominated industry to work in, yet alone make substantial changes in, but Kate's certainly making the changes she's set out to do. Kate explains why this change is so gradual: for an industry with so much general interest, the net profit margins are slim, making significantly less than the video game industry. But Kate doesn't let this deter her mission and works full-time in the industry, dedicated to change. Unfortunately, since she's now creating the games, she doesn't get to play as often as she'd like to. Kate's also a committed community manager. She strives to ensure the communities she manages are inclusive and safe for everyone, especially marginalised ​groups of people. She's recommended some great books, too, if you're interested in inclusive community management: I Hope We Choose Love by Kai Cheng Thom (https://arsenalpulp.com/Books/I/I-Hope-We-Choose-Love) Are We Done Fighting? by Matthew Legge (https://arewedonefighting.com/) Nonviolent Communication by Marshall Rosenberg (https://www.amazon.ca/Nonviolent-Communication-Language-Life-Changing-Relationships/dp/189200528X) Conflict is Not Abuse by Sarah Schulman (https://arsenalpulp.com/Books/C/Conflict-Is-Not-Abuse) And Just a Few TTRPG Resources Kate Mentioned: Camdon.com (https://www.camdon.com/) Mork Borg (https://morkborg.com/) Find Kate Bullock Online You can find Kate Bullock Online (http://www.bluestockings.ca/) and Twitter (https://twitter.com/bluestockingetc) Fine Unicorn Motorcycle Games Online (https://www.unicornmotorcyclegames.com/) Check Out Geek Herring!
