Episode 55: Geek Girl in the News: Blizzard vs the USA vs China, Natalie Portman’s call to action, & women in space

Geek Girl in the News looks at the awesome or not so awesome news that will make you go either: “YAY” or “OMG I can’t believe that.”

The latest and greatest geek girl news from October 2019 covers Blizzard’s reality check from Congress, female directors for Disney+ Star Wars shows, the new Catwoman, Natalie Portman’s call for women to fuck up and own their mistakes, Delta’s women-led flight to NASA, and the first all-female spacewalk FINALLY happening!

After recording and releasing our last episode about everything going on with Blizzard, China, and Blitzchung, it’s now come to light that the US Congress – from BOTH sides – got involved, too. 5 politicians wrote Blizzard a, uh, pretty strongly worded letter urging them to reconsider their stance…

Next up, we hit the entertainment news and talk about Deborah Chow’s lead directorial role with Obi-Wan Kenobi – how cool does this show sound!? And Zoe Kravitz getting cast as the next Catwoman. Then Amanda learns a shocking discovery about Monika’s past – make sure you listen to find out what!

We totally celebrate and stan queen Natalie Portman and her latest speech given at the Elle Women in Hollywood evening where she encourages women to embrace their mistakes and thrive, not to let them ruin their lives. Amanda’s hidden behind mistakes and she can tell you personally – IT’S NOT WORTH IT!

And last but not least we go to SPACE with Delta, 120 girls, an all-female flight crew, and the first all-female space walk that finally happened. More women in aviation, please, k thanks!
