Episode 26: Questionable Content

Andi and Lise are way into the award-winning Questionable Content webcomic (Lise got Andi started on it), by Jeph Jacques, which launched August 1, 2003 and has been since then. It’s a slice-of-life comic populated by a diverse group of people and includes strong women and strong queer rep and all kinds of other rep. People of different ages and body types, backgrounds, and all kinds of things in between.

The comic is at times hilarious, moving, poignant, wacky, and overall an amazing amount of fun.

Episode 25: Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Andi and Lise rave over Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which opened in theaters in December. TLJ is the continuation of the Star Wars story from the movie The Force Awakens, which was released in Dec. 2015. TLJ is chock full of strong women characters, has a diverse cast (though we’re still waiting on the overtly queer rep…), and these characters were integral to the story. Here, Rey continues her exploration of her abilities with The Force; General Leia and, later, Vice Admiral Holdo (Laura Dern) are trying to outrun The First Order; and Rose Tico the Resistance mechanic proves a mentor of sorts for Finn, the ex-Stormtrooper. The movie also explores Luke Skywalker’s character arc in interesting ways.

TLJ provides a jumping-off point for new directions in the Star Wars movie universe and perhaps a launching of the new generation and both Andi and Lise are excited to see what happens.
