Episode 102 – Fan Fiction

In this episode, Heather is out on assignment, enjoying all of the awesome things California fan conventions offer, so Liz was joined by special guest host Mandy to read some erotic fan fiction! Mandy is the host of CasterQuest, an awesome podcast that covers Patrick Rothfuss’ Kingkiller Chronicles, Game of Thrones, and does an annual 4th of July fan fiction episode!! We decided to take the plunge into this entertaining and disturbing world!

The Disney Empire

Episode 91 – The Disney Empire

In this episode, Liz and Heather discuss the Disney empire and their plan for world domination. Or at least box office domination. Settle in for some Red Vines and Reeses Penis!

The Disney Empire

The Disney Empire

Time to bow to our new overlords! We discuss the recent announcement that Disney has acquired part of 20th Century Fox and the franchises it will now own and their implications for the movie industry. We also talk about what this takeover will mean for the future of Netflix, Hulu, and Disney’s proposed streaming service. Is this a good thing? Are we excited? What are the short- and long-term ramifications of this in light of the previous purchases of Marvel Studios and Lucasfilm?

FYI – This episode goes off the rails a bit in the middle.

Star Wars: Thrawn

Episode 90 – BOOK CLUB – Star Wars: Thrawn

In this Book Club episode, Liz and Heather dive into Star Wars: Thrawn by Timothy Zahn! This beloved extended universe character has been brought back into the Star Wars canon in this book and in the animated series, Rebels.

Star Wars: Thrawn

Star Wars: Thrawn

Welcome to our first book club episode of 2018! We are actually on time (for once), so listen in as we start the new year off right! In this first book, we get the origin story on one of the greatest “villans” of all time (in Star Wars), Grand Admiral Thrawn. This book, unlike others we have read, comes from his perspective, rather than those of our regular Rebellion heroes.

Obviously, the whole book club will be full of spoilers. Duh!!

This story follows Thrawn, Eli Vanto, and (B-story) Ahrinda Pryce and how they have come to be in their positions within the Empire.

In this episode, Liz and Heather discuss The Last Jedi and their 3 year anniversary! It’s hard to believe that we have been “on the air” for three years already, but here we are! We are also welcoming another new year.

The Last Jedi

Happy New Year and Happy 3 Year Anniversary to Us!

We have had so much fun over the past three years and cannot wait to see what 2018 holds! We talk a little about our troll who came back out of the woodwork over Christmas. If you want to troll the troll, be our guest.

We also devote a lot of time talking about winter in Houston, because it has been crazy cold here for no good reason. We even had snow this year.

The Last Jedi

Liz and Operaman watched the movie the first time on opening night with Mandy from Casterquest, while Heather and Producer Craig missed their original screening due to shitty plumbing and had to hit it on Saturday morning.

Listen in for all of our opinions, fan theories, and where we think the franchise can go from here.

Also, for those who hated the movie, try watching it again.

Robots and Cyborgs and Droids Oh My!! In this episode, Heather and Liz discuss their favorite near-human companions throughout sci-fi and fantasy! Join us as we hit our favorites throughout our favorite fandoms.

Robots and cyborgs and droids oh my

Robots and Cyborgs and Droids, Oh My!!

This may be our most mansplained episode ever, so we will see how that goes along. A robot is a machine that does the job of a human. An android is a robot is generally made to look like a human. Cyborgs have organic material mixed with mechanical stuff.

[We are not talking bout Roombas and robot maids and sex bots, though we do actually talk about a few of those things. Vacuums totally blow, by the way.]

We took a quiz to see which Star Wars droids we are. Liz got K-2SO and Heather got BB-8. We would like to see a buddy movie made with those two, so someone get on that! We go on a bit of a tangent regarding introverts vs. extroverts. Shout out to our new friends at Serves You Right podcast!

The Star Wars universe is chock full of droids, and these are mostly our favorites. C-3PO, R2-D2, BB-8, K-2SO.

We also went through literature, music, film, and TV.

  • Mr. Roboto by Styx

  • Tik Tok from Return to Oz (1907)
  • Marvin the Paranoid Android (Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy)

Rogue One

Episode 61 – Rogue One

In this episode, Liz and Heather talk all about Rogue One and the future of the Star Wars saga. There are spoilers in this episode, so make sure you have seen the movie or just take our word for it!

Rogue One

Rogue One

We start out talking about Star Wars canon and the previously-known extended universe (now Legends). Some of the more popular things from the old books are coming back into the true canon, like Admiral Thrawn (first introduced by Timothy Zahn in the Trawn trilogy), who is now appearing in Star Wars: Rebels this season. We also see Saw Guerrera, who originally came around in Clone Wars, and is now in Rogue One, and also in Rebels.

Other characters that show up in Rogue One: Chopper (droid, Rebels), General Syndulla (Hera, Rebels), Dr. Evanza and Ponda Baba (bad dudes from the Cantina scene in Episode IV)

Rogue One passed the Bechtel Test! (Note: There is a new Jyn Erso backstory book coming out soon). As far as women go, we see Jyn and Mon Mothma talking, and not about a man! We would like more backstory on Jyn to tell us why we should care about her, because she is kind of a bitch throughout the whole story (more so in the Rogue One book than the movie).

Villains – Star Wars is amazing at making terrible villains who actually make you uncomfortable. Orsen Krennick, Darth Vader being a badass (and also cracking jokes while force choking someone), Tarkin, etc.

CGI issues – Peter Cushing passed in 1994 and was recreated via CGI over another actor. Tarkin was an essential part of the story, so it was necessary to have him in the story. His importance is much stronger in the book than what they did in the movie, which was respectful. We LOVED the CGI Princess Leia at the end of the movie. It is harder to watch after her passing in late December.

Discussion around other characters. We will be doing a Robot episode in the upcoming months, so we talk only about K-2SO in this episode.

Bitch of the Week

Heather – Birds

Liz – Oversharing of someone else’s photos on Facebook

Book Club – Coming Soon

Our next selection is The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams. Probably just the first books.

We also bring back the Bitch of the Week and Out-of-Context Internet Comments segments, and added a new one: Things We Just Don’t Get.

Not so great expectations

Episode 60: Not So Great Expectations

Happy New Year! 2016 was a total bitch, and not in a good way like we are. In this episode, we talk about the not so great expectations of being a girl, and also provide a memorial on the late Carrie Fisher.

Not so great expectations

In Memory of Carrie Fisher…

We recorded the actual episode before Christmas, so when we woke up to the news that Carrie Fisher, our beloved Princess Leia, had died a few days after a heart attack. It was really devastating. Liz wrote about it on her blog, so you can read that here, but this was our recognition of an amazing woman who was an actor, an advocate for the mentally ill, and a fantastic writer. The day after, her mother, Debbie Reynolds, also died. So much tragedy in such a short time. Prayers for Gary Fisher. You can’t explain death to a dog. Let the love of Carrie carry us forward into DOING something, rather than waiting for things to happen. Let’s make the world a better place.

Moving on…

Not So Great Expectations

Heather loves day-drinking, especially at a festival. And the drunk texts from her during these events are also amazingly weird. But we want to talk about what it’s like being a girl when you aren’t really a “girly girl” and aren’t meeting up to expectations – ours or the world’s. First of all, just because we don’t always want to be girly doesn’t mean we want to be dudes. Get over your “penis envy” comments just because we don’t feel like doing our hair or makeup every day.

Story about Speedos. Just… don’t. Also, New Year’s Resolutions… stop. Stop hating yourself when you don’t meet these flighty goals. Make real goals and work on them. We talk about some goals that we have made over the years to better ourselves that aren’t just short-term goals.

The expectations we put on ourselves are often harder than the ones society imposes. We always assumed that we would be more put-together as adult women. And we judged, growing up, the moms/women who weren’t. We imagined that at some age, we would wake up and get our shit together. Still waiting…

Listen in to the rest.

Note: This is the “comfy” bra Operaman brought Liz when we went out and forgot to put one on…
