Collective Snark

A pop culture podcast about a little bit of everything

August 18th, 2017    

Supernatural

 

The Snarkers discuss Supernatural!

We discuss our favorite characters, the show’s problematic but dramatically improving treatment of female characters, the relationships, the acting, and Jared doing chin-up shirtless. Also, learn the terrible things Donna has done to Pops.

Also, Snark is saying goodbye to Michele. After over a year as a Snarker, Michele is leaving the protective Snarkcasts cocoon. We will miss you, Michele!

Whitewashing - if it’s not a picket fence, just don’t do it.

Whitewashing

Casting a white actor in a role that should be played by an actor of color. Death Note, New Mutants, Dr. Strange, Gods of Egypt, Aloha, Ghost in the Machine are just a few examples. With guests A’isha and Luke, the Snarkers discuss this historical problem.

Collective Snark - Wonder Woman

 

In which the Snarkers rave over Wonder Woman. We talk about what it meant to us to see this strong, powerful woman portrayed on screen as a warrior. We talk about Antiope and Amazon warriors and Steve Trevor and the multi-cultural team and that amazing, empowering, inspiring, emotional walk into no-man’s lands. We embrace, once again, the sexualization of the Chrisses. (we are for it).

You guys, we loved this movie. Is it perfect? No. But, just like Wonder Woman’s thigh jiggle does not make her less strong, this movie’s imperfections don’t make it less inspiring.

 

Wonder Woman!

Diversity is Killing Comics????

 

In which the Snarkers discuss Daniel Gabriel’s now infamous quote regarding the effect of diversity on comic sales. With our guests Billy and A’isha, we talk about comics, what is a comic, the context of the original quote, the importance of representation, babies, how fantastic the 2018 Black Panther looks, Diamond Comics and its impact on the industry monopoly over comic distribution, and give a spontaneous review of Baby Driver.

Nerdists post on the subject

Compliments, or Why a Drunken Moose Matters

In which the Snarkers discuss compliments, hair, and moose.

Inspired by this buzzfeed article (don’t judge), the Snarkers along with guests Alison and Brianna have a fun conversation that starts with compliments and ends with battling moose and bears for guns? I dunno, you had to be there.

Collective Snark - Episode 2.10 - The Magicians

Warning: This episode addresses topics like rape and abortion.

https://collectivesnark.files.wordpress.com/2017/05/julia.jpg?w=520

In which the Snarkers gather to talk about our mutual love of SyFy's The Magicians. This dark fantasy pays homage to classic fantasies like The Chronicles of Narnia and Alice in Wonderland.

It can be a little hard to learn to love, but if Penny's eyes don't draw you in, maybe it's Elliot and Margo, or maybe Quentin and Alice's bumbling relationship, or Julia's dark path to find her way to magic.

Guests Rob and Lyz join us for the conversation.

Collective Snark - Episode 2.9 - How to talk to girls. And guys. And anyone in between

In which the Snarks talk with their friend Jack about how to appropriately approach people with whom you'd like to express interest. We talk about body language, that wretched "How to turn a no into a yes" article," when it's ok to approach people, and more.

Also, whether or not Jack is a player and whether or not Jack is a good boyfriend.

Jack is kinda a good sport, you guys.
