    Ep. 71 - And Don't Let Anyone Box You In

    Ep. 71 - And Don't Let Anyone Box You In

    And so it's come to this. In our final episode (for the foreseeable future) your queer cohosts Hamish Steele and Jade Rose look about on our 70+ episodes and see how much we've grown. We've vox popped, we've catched up geeked outed, we've been problematic (ding!) and we've most certainly NOT been a Simpsons podcast.

    Thank you! We know we've meant a lot to some of you but you've meant the WORLD to us. We may be ending but we see this project as a huge success. We're proud of what we've done and ready to do new things, bolstered by how wonderful our listeners have been.

    We also spend WAY too long catching up about Spider-Verse, The Favourite, Russian Doll, Schitt's Creek and the Nintendo Switch's eShop Indie offerings.

    Ep. 66 - Strong Female Characters

    From Dorothy Gale to Jean Grey, Moana to Mako Mori (and now Doctor Who!) the term "Strong Female Character" elicits many passioned responses. We try our best to dissect where this term game from, where we stand on it now and what we can do to keep writing better women.

    And as always we Catch Up and Geek Out in this bumper ep!

Great

I love listening to these two talk about nerdy things while I work.

Why oh WHY do I love this PODCAST SO MUCH?!

Oh- Because its AWESOME! Thats why! These two BEAUTIFUL people speak and verbalize everything that im thinking but never say. My perfect dosage of my much needed geeking. I squeel a little everytime theres a doctor who reference. On top of that, things get really real when talking about queer representation and other LGBTQ things that are happening in the world.

Queer, Geeky, and I love it

This is my favorite podcast to listen to! Jade and Hamish are amazing. They are respectfu to everyone including ace people which is YAY!!! (just yay! can't swear here) My only problem is I now have more geeky stuff that I need to check out now. Not a bad thing but that list was already pretty long. Anyone Queer and/or Geeky should listen to this!
