It’s time for episode 61, in which we’re talking about the ways that queerness is expressed and represented in media. When is a stereotype a stereotype? Is it bad if queer women (gasp!) look like queer women? What counts as representation and what does? And exactly how English major can Missy get on Yuri!!! on ICE?
We’ve finally reached the end of Sailor Moon in episode 59, and it’s time to get even weirder, somehow. This season has a big focus on growth and the importance of sharing your burdens, and we’re chatting about both, as well as the series’ lasting legacy and influence on modern media.
It’s time for episode 58, which means we’re knee-deep in Sailor Moon Super S! Want bizarre circus performers, crop tops for boys, and sweet horse loving? Look no further.
It’s time for episode 57, and we’re diving deep into the the wild, sometimes confusing world of Sailor Moon S! Things get a little deeper, a little more complex, and a lot more queer. Also, a large digression about Dragon Age, because why not?
Welcome to episode 56, in which we discuss the the joys and hilarity of Sailor Moon R! We’re talking about weird elf people, sexy jazzercise Elsa, and the perils of materialism, as well as the show’s mixed messages.
Welcome to episode 55, in which we discuss the fashion, color schemes, and potential feminism of Sailor Moon season one! Which Sailor Scout are we? Does ‘weaponized femininity’ apply here? How has Sailor Moon changed the landscape of worldwide media? Also, a laugh track.
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.
Missy and Merri discuss My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, Avatar: The Last Airbender, and the theme of friendship. Other discussions include struggling to pronounce ‘patriarchal,’ the difference in depictions of same-gender and different-gender friendships, and how threesomes are immensely preferable to love triangles.
Merri and Missy discuss nostalgia, gritty reboots, Sailor Moon, Final Fantasy X, and what we love and hate about contemporary movies and animation.
