Geekquality is a new podcast that discusses feminism, race, ability, gender, and sexuality in geek culture. There is an occasional smattering of well-intentioned colorful language and discussion of fictional and real life topics of sensitive nature. And, as with any podcast or blog focused on discussing current media, we will be discussing plot developments of TV shows, movies and books, so there may be occasional spoilers.

    Geekquality podcast - Episode 4 - Whedonverse!

    Geekquality podcast - Episode 4 - Whedonverse!

    In this episode of our podcast Elyse, Alice Marie, Lois and Moxie called each other up to talk about their many feelings about the Whedonverse. While, without a doubt, we all enjoy Joss Whedon's output and are happy to have a fellow geek creating exciting content, certain problematic elements of his creative output need to be discussed. Among things discussed, Moxie breaks it down on the erasure of bisexuality in Buffy, Lois is through with Firefly because of the show's treatment of Chinese culture, and Alice Marie has a lot of feelings (both good and bad) about Dollhouse and the show's premise. And then there's that one movie he just did. With all the butts. The episode then finishes off with a great (although not Whedon-related) tangent discussing Joan Watson and the upcoming series Elementary. And there ya have it, folks.

    In this episode, Alice Marie, Lois & Moxie, along with guest Rick, talk about the way geeks and nerds are portrayed in the media. They go into why The Big Bang Theory just doesn't work, discuss what the good representations are, and go on possibly one of the funniest tangents in our recording history so far, with Misfits sex talk.
