217. 'Snake Eyes' Trailer Reaction
Dominic, Britney, and Keith react to the official Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins trailer and why Henry Golding's portrayal of the character is so meaningful. They also watched a short behind-the-scenes feature and differentiate between the G.I. Joe comics and cartoons, and Keith explains why he no longer cares if Iron Fist is Asian American anymore.
Yup. I listened to the recent episode on Batman. Yup. I loved it.
Nerds of Color is full of awesome conversation, diverse points of view (even ones where the hosts don't agree), and a whole lot of totally dorky nerdery! Their recent shows on what is happening around us are also essential listening, and I appreciate so much that they explored these things while still flying that geek flag (our community needs the wake-up call!).
This show deserves your earholes. So click that button! :D
A can’t-miss for me each week
Mondays are only bearable because of this podcast. Every episode is like a mini-comic-con with Keith, Don and Shawn (we miss you!!)
Man. Shawn and Keith Jeep it light but intelligent. Good fun and positive vibes. This is great!
