Clarkisha Kent joins us to discuss her brand new book, Fat Off, Fat On: A Bit Bitch Manifesto. We had the pleasure of reading this book before its release, and it was really cool getting to chat with her about her writing and creative process.CW for childhood and family trauma, which is a big topic in her memoir. We briefly discuss family dynamics and trauma in this episode, too.Clarkisha shares her writing process, how she came to write her memoir before the western she's dreaming of, and what it's like being a first-time published author.About Clarkisha KentClarkisha Kent is a Nigerian-American writer, culture critic, former columnist, and author. Committed to telling inclusive stories via unique viewpoints from nigh-infancy, she is fascinated with using storytelling and cultural criticism not as a way to “overcome” or “transcend” her unique identities (as a fat and queer Black African woman), but as a way to explore them, celebrate them, affirm them, and most importantly, normalize them and make the world safe enough for people who share them to exist.Fat Off, Fat On: A Big Bitch Manifesto on GoodreadsFind Clarkisha Kent OnlineFind Clarkisha Kent on Twitter | InstagramCheck Out Geek Herring!Follow Geek Herring on Twitch!!Subscribe to Geek Herring Productions on YouTubeLove Geek Herring, please hop over to Apple Podcasts and leave us a review!Support Geek Herring on Patreon!If you’ve enjoyed this episode, please check out some of our others!Geek Interview: Winning Gold Medals and Championing Diversity & Inclusion in eSports with Emma ‘Emzii’ RoseGeek Girl Reviews Ms Marvel: A Fun, Cultural Masterpiece with Jasmin Joe StarGeek Interview: Geek Interview: Geek Joysticks with Ed and Ben from Swapping JoysticksFind Out MoreLove Geek Herring, please hop over to Apple Podcasts and leave us a review!Join us on Discord!!You can find us Online / Facebook / Instagram / Twitter / Patreon!Geekily yours,Amanda & Monika ★ Support this podcast on Patreon ★

Jennifer Lawrence made some pretty controversial comments about women in action movies. Mainly - that she paved the way since no one had ever cast a woman as the lead in an action movie before. While she's factually incorrect, let's unpack the truth behind her statement!We get super into this, but in essence: while many action stars came before Jennifer Lawrence in The Hunger Games (Sigourney Weaver, Sarah Conner, Charlie's Angels, Angelina Jolie... the list goes on and on), her role started a revolution.The Hunger Games was a masterpiece that started a whole new genre of women in dystopian action films, mainly geared towards a YA audience.So, while we totally acknowledge that her comments were factually inaccurate, they are also kind of true. Also, we just think Jennifer Lawrence is the BEST, please let celebrities make blunders, we don't need to drag everyone. Especially since she clarified her statement in a further interview.What did you think?

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 November 2022 covers the sad loss of Noodles the Pug, Brendan Fraser being everyone's King and taking a stand for #MeToo (and rightfully so), an update on the morality police in Iran and what that might mean, Kevin McHale's thoughts on joining a Glee reboot, D&D's change to more inclusive language, and Twitch's new Shield Mode safety measure!We'd love your take!

Wakanda Forever is finally out! And we are getting right into it this super spoilery episode - so please come back to this one if you haven't seen Wakanda Forever and are worried about spoilers!Mild Spoilers Below!We talk about the overarching theme of grief that permeates this film. Shuri, Namor, and Ramonda all embody different expressions of grief. We talk about revenge and anger and how these emotions are also ways that grief can manifest.But this movie isn't all sadness - though you definitely want to bring tissues because man, what a fucking cryfest, seriously!!There is also SO MUCH Black Girl Power in this. Honestly just these women out here absolutely wiping the floor with their excellence, intelligence, and casual badassery.We also love the change the MCU made to Namor/(originally The Submariner) - Did you know he's one of the very first Marvel characters, having been introduced in the comics in 1939?? While they've kept some original aspects - his cute af ankle wings - and took some creative liberties with them (they fucking FLAP, yo), they've changed his origin story to be from Mesoamerica and this change ROCKS. We love the stories told, the history and oppression in this storyline. It's a hard watch, at times, but these stories need to be told how they actually were.No White Saviours!For the rest of our thoughts, definitely tune in to this episode!What did you think?
