Sarah and Roxi welcome Girls With Issues hosts Billea Bones and Vicki Oh to discuss female representation in the media, both positive and negative.
Time is very limited. You are only allocated so much of it to accomplish your tasks at hand. Oftentimes, the urgent things in life take over, whether they be car payments and student loans, or picking up the kids from school and going grocery shopping. There is always something. Trust me, I know all about it. I work two full time jobs, take care of my family (that includes two kids and one on the way) and volunteer at my local observatory. We are all busy.
With Eric on a two-week break, Nerdonomy regular David McGuire stops by, and he and Bryan revel in their stage acting days while discussing the changes to art of Acting that in the 20th Century. Enjoy!

In other cases, though, finding the perfect beer that compliments a film can help shed new light on it by allowing not only your senses of sight and sound to experience it, but your sense of taste as well.

Yes, yes. I’m a feminist. Listeners of our Nerds on Film podcast have been quite aware of this for some time. Feel free to shed your image of man-hating, bra burning feminazis however. We come in all different shades, and yes, feminists have a sense of humor too. Specifically, clever nerds and artists who have started what I deem (in all my righteous power as galactic empress) to be the greatest thing to ever happen to the internet: The Hawkeye Initiative.
