Welcome to 2021, an arbitrary flipping of the calendar that we still hope will bring us more joy than the dumpster fire we just experienced.
A “short one” in which we talk about Hamilton for 20 minutes. Other topics include: grocery games, cowboy feelings, and time loops.
It’s musical season among the Fake Geek Girls. Also: Scientology, villainous women, and things that aren’t as good as Carmilla.
We’re back with episode 42, discussing AI, specifically of the female or female-coded variety. Topics include the films Her and Ex Machina, and the comic Alex + Ada by Jonathan Luna and Sarah Vaughn, how those stories are in conversation with one another, what gender has to do with robots, and whether artificial intelligence is even that great of an idea, anyway. Special thanks to our friend Stephani for the donuts. Oh, and her intelligent conversation.
We’re back with episode 32, discussing historical fiction, period pieces, and Hamilton. What responsibilities do writers of historical fiction have? What’s so appealing about looking into the past? How important is realism when looking at historical fiction? All these things and a passionate discussion about how great Hamilton is – what more could you want?
