Girls on Pop – Episode 17: The Big Dumb Movie Edition

Representation is a real thing that people want to see in movies! For realz! You don’t have to take our word for it. Just have a look at the data from a recent UCLA study (plus these diversity stats from 6 years ago).

Join Marina (@themarina) and Ashley (@ashleylynch) as they discuss how important diversity and representation is both in front and behind the camera.

Girls on Pop – Episode 11: Hollywood Hates Netflix

He’s baaaaack!

It’s here! The long awaited return of Sarah (@iBrockely)!

Sarah finally decided to take a break from school and we met up on a semi-clear, not so warm evening to record a show on the patio of a local dive bar.

We were mostly undisturbed except for the occasional interruption to order more food and beer. Sarah and I (@themarina) managed to have a pretty long winded conversation covering everything from a bunch of new trailers to recent hints from the Hollywood establishment that they’re not too thrilled with the way Netflix is throwing their billions around.

Girls on Pop – Episode 10: 2016 Counted Down

2016 has come and gone and though by the year’s half-way mark it looked like it might be one of the poorest movie years in some time, the latter part turned out to be an abundance of riches, offering up more than enough great movies to make up for the mostly dreadful first half.

So what did we think of last year’s movie crop? What turned out to be our favorites and not so faves? On this momentous episode of Girls on Pop – not only is this our first episode of 2017 but also our first in the double digits – I’m joined by newly minted Row Three contributor and all-around awesome movie maven Melissa McDowell (@MelsyTweets) to count down our favourite movies of 2016.

Along the way we also talk about the poor state of women in Hollywood, some of the close calls that didn’t quite make the list and one or two underrated gems just waiting for discovery.

Not soon enough
Not soon enough

After a few weeks of hiatus where one of us organized a festival and attended another while the other one went back to school, Sarah (@iBrockely) and I (@themarina) finally managed to carve out a bit of time this week to record another episode of the podcast.

With so many great movies playing at the moment, we skipped over much of our usual trailer talk to dig into a couple of recent movies while still finding time to fangirl just a little about the new Beauty and the Beast trailer!

Girls on Pop – Episode 8: Oh the Music!

The hero we need right now?
The hero we need right now?

We recorded this show during the final days of the Olympics last week and our recording was shortly preempted by a break to watch the relay race which leads us to kick things off this week with a bit of discussion of one of the biggest events in the world before Sarah (@iBrockely) and I (@themarina) dig into some talk about entertainment news and happenings including a couple of new trailers and some deep discussion on the future of the DC Extended Universe.
