LOS ANGELES – AUG 17: Audrey Kearns at the 2nd Annual Geeky Awards at Avalon on August 17, 2014 in Los Angeles, CA

Welcome to the Legion of Leia Podcast, Episode 8! This week, my co-hosts Anastasia Washington and Sabina Ibarra and I welcome guest Audrey Kearns from Geek Girl Authority, and podcasts Kneel Before Aud and Poll Cats as well as the storytelling slam 5 Truths and a Lie, which I’ve been lucky enough to participate in! You guys have to check it out!

The show gets a bit raunchy this week as we discuss boobs in video games after a “discussion” I had with a lovely troll about our article on Metal Gear Solid V and Quiet’s outfit. We also talk about some serious Star Wars: The Force Awakens spoilers (maybe) revealed in the comic Star Wars: Shattered Empire and what the reveal of Mads Mikkelson‘s character name in Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One might mean. (We warn you before we talk about it! We don’t know anything. We’re just speculating here.)

We discuss our favorite Star Trek episodes, as Audrey is a huge fan and I spent last night writing a chapter for the book Star Trek Psychology. We also go into John Diggle‘s new outfit in Arrow, the awful “comedy” video Dear Fat People. Also, Sabina got a chance to chat about sexism and Crimson Peak with Guillermo Del Toro. She mentions it on the podcast. Here is a link to what he said.

Oh, and back to the raunchy stuff. We talk about the weird poop museum in Japan, as well as the … um … Japanese reality show where ladies … um, jerk guys off while they try to sing karaoke. No, really. It’s absolutely a thing. I’ve linked to it for you, but it is NSFW!

Give it a listen below and may the Force be with you!
