We are Merri and Missy, two girls who love talking about the things they love both as fans and as critics. That means that sometimes we giggle our way through a conversation about 2018 masterpiece Venom, and sometimes we have serious conversations about the ways that fatphobia and racism shape the media we consume. Sometimes it’s light and breezy, sometimes it’s heavy, but we try to be productive rather than tearing things down just for the sake of getting sweet dunks in. **NOTE: Our host on ...
 
Dedicated to expanding the definition of geek culture through individual experience and irreverent commentary, Marginally Geek is a podcast for and about geeks, nerds, and fans that identify as minorities and marginalized identities.
