Can’t Talk Media

Discussing books, television, games, movies, writing, and feminism. A lot of feminism. Inappropriate jokes in abundance. Language & content are absolutely NSFW.

Episode 3: Donna Noble Is Our Queen

Spoilers: Doctor Who

In this episode, Bell and Amelia struggle through an awkward conversation about racism. No worries, though; the mood lightens considerably when the conversation turns to dental dams, serial killers, and Bell's boobs!

Episode 2: Can’t Talk, Dick (Spoilers: Tomb Raider)

On this episode, Bell and Amelia discuss... dicks. And butts. Then we felt guilty about it, because people should not be objectified. We also discussed religion, the Bechdel test, and how Amelia destroys everything Bell loves through feminism. (It's her superpower.)

Episode 1: Geek It Secret, Geek it Safe

 In our very first episode of The Can't Talk Podcast, Bell explains why you shouldn't name your characters after bodily fluids and Amelia sings Megan Hart's praises. The conversation moves on to the books we loved as kids, trends in romance novels, and what happens when writers start "phoning it in". After that, the ladies (for lack of a better word) dissect the phenomena of geek exclusivity and how it ultimately relates to misogyny.
