Topics: In feedback, we mention two articles involving Amélie Lamont. The first article is written by Amélie Lamont on her experiences of sexism & racism in the tech industry and the second article is an interview with Amélie Lamont discussing her story, toxic work environments and ways to build a support system in tech. This week we did a crossover episode with Chris & Na'Amen from The Adventures of Yellow Peril and Magical Negro podcast during Wiscon. We even got Inda from Black Girl Squee podcast to join in the fun.
Topics: It takes two to tango. Maria & I talk about C2E2, great guests coming to DragonCon, #BlackPodcastWeek, the return of Steven Universe this summer, Toonami showing another season of Fooly Cooly, and how we are tired of the back-to-back reboots of Superman, Batman, and Spiderman movies.
Topics: Janelle Monáe Joins Taraji P. Henson and Octavia Spencer in 'Hidden Figures', Google hires founder of 4chan, presumably to work on Google+, and ShowTime's Dark Net episode on episode 7 features our very own Jamie Nesbitt-Golden and Mikki Kendall. This week we discuss our favorite Thursday line-up of Grey's Anatomy, Scandal, and How to Get Away With Murder.
I began watching DCs Legends of Tomorrow over the weekend. I was a little behind so I marathoned the first four episodes and in general I enjoyed it. However, the relationship dynamics between Jefferson Jackson (So, you decided to name your only black character after two American presidents. Did they have to be slave owning presidents? What’re you trying to say, DC?) and Dr. Stein; the two halves of Firestorm have left my panties bunched.
