About this Episode

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 September 2019 covers Kristen Stewart's sexuality, Scarlett Johansson's unfeminist takes, Amber Heard and Johnny Depp (again), Siri's stance on feminism, and the awesome new game, Ms Monopoly!

September brought us a LOT of geek girl news. While we're bringing up a former couple we've spoken about a few times, there's been some new developments in the Amber Heard/Johnny Depp saga. What do you think about it?

We also think it's totally rude to tell sassy bisexual actor Kristen Stewart to tone down her sexuality - let your bi flag fly high, Kristen! Your fans are out here supporting you. Whoever told you that shouldn't be working in PR. But let's not skip over Scarlett Johansson's latest hot takes - no thank you! Where's YOUR PR support? Because they should tell you to sit down!

Let's celebrate the new game from Hasbro, Ms Monopoly, that celebrates women and takes a unique spin where women are getting paid 20% more than men. Love love love this! While this isn't what feminism wants (hello actual equality) Ms Monopoly is addressing the gender pay gap in the coolest way. Here for it!!! Plus, they've given grants to three awesome school girls making waves in STEM at their young ages. Go Hasbro! More companies like this, please!

Oh, and what do you think of renaming Lincolnshire's Fire & Rescue mascots Freddy and Frida!?? CONSIDER IT, OKAY!?
