LOVE this show and these ladies.

Firstly, this podcast is worth listening to for Preeti's giggles in the background. It's delightful. I admit, I started backwards with most recent episodes since I heard Evie from the Mummy was mentioned, but I soon knew I loved the podcast. Feminist geek discussions with an ensemble, BOOK recommendations, con coverage - what's not to love?

It’s like hanging out with my best friends, nerd style.

I’ve waited too long to review, but I couldn’t help it, I was too busy catching up on ALL the episodes! Now maybe I can get some work done...

In all seriousness, listening to these awesome ladies has helped me realize I am not alone! They use phrases I use which I rarely hear from others, they love many of the same obscure films, TV shows, etc., I was under the impression I was alone in loving. It’s so refreshing to hear them discuss the things I love, whether our opinions are the same or not. All the women bring something just a little different to the table but they are all intelligent and funny, making this podcast one of the highlights of my day.

Their series on the Forgotten Women of Genre are some that I have saved to listen to again, and it’s like these nerd goddesses heard my prayer and created a whole new podcast based off of this series (originally only for Women’s History month). Just a warning, I tear up and/or cry listening to almost each of these episodes, so plan accordingly!

Thank you, ladies, for making me (to quote the kids) feel seen, for never shying away from a topic, and helping me feel like I’m a part of the pop culture dialogue. Keep up the awesomeness and always, always, SPEAK GEEK LIKE A GIRL!

Feminists... Assemble!!

This podcast is my new favorite thing!! I’ve spent the last 3 years of college studying representation in genre films and sometimes I don’t feel like I’m taken seriously because of it, but listening to Courtney, Preeti, and Cher helped me realize that there are other women like me out there who have a love for the nerdverse and that as women our voices and opinions are valid and can/should be taken seriously. This podcast never fails to inspire me and I can’t recommend it enough!
