ABOUT FAKE GEEK GIRLS

WHAT IS THIS?

Fake Geek Girls is a podcast looking at nerdy pop culture from both a fan and critical perspective, encouraging the things we love to do better.

WHO ARE YOU?

We are Merri and Missy, two girls who love talking about the things they love both as fans and as critics. That means that sometimes we giggle our way through a conversation about 2018 masterpiece Venom, and sometimes we have serious conversations about the ways that fatphobia and racism shape the media we consume. Sometime’s it’s light and breezy, sometimes it’s heavy, but we try to be productive rather than tearing things down just for the sake of getting sweet dunks in.

WHY, THOUGH?

To us, critique is a labor of love - we enjoy geek culture, and want it to be the best it can be. In the process of discussing pop culture and the geek community, we hope to enrich our own understanding of the things we love, the communities we're a part of, and help others do the same.
