Nuchtchas, Tek, Jason (Podcasting’s Heartthrob), Claire, & Shane, gather to talk about the pervasive problem of Whitewashing in Hollywood. That’s right, four white people and one person of color tackle this topic, are we part of the problem? Likely. Listen as we get enraged and try to play devil’s advocate but still can’t understand why this is still a thing.
Also included an Englishman saying Benidact Cumberbatch :) And the explanation of how Into Darkness didn’t have Kahn.
Yes we understand, but didn’t clearly state till we turned off the recording, that yes Ben Kingsley is part Indian but he is so white passing and they used brown face on him when he played Ghandi. I suppose it was progressive casting for the time, but we still aren’t happy.
We make some mistakes, and leave some stuff out, but that’s what happens when you are impassioned about a topic. Some people may say this isn’t a big deal, but this panel of geeks all seem to think it is a big deal.

Nuchtchas, Tek, & Robin talk about TV Show Revivals. They talk about shows that have been brought back, shows coming back, and shows we wish would come back. What makes a good revival and what makes a painful revival. Some special features include comparing Fuller House to Girl Meets world, and talking about the best TV Show Revivals like Red Dwarf, Veronica Mars, and Doctor Who. We also discover that Nutty really needs to watch Twin Peaks. Listen and tell us your thoughts, what shows do you want to see come back and what shows just need to stay gone for good?

I love the show RWBY, if you don’t know how much, listen to this podcast episode where along with the Talk Nerdy 2 Me Podcast we discuss it in depth. Tonight Tek and I watched the Volume 3 finale, actually we watched the last three episodes of volume 3. It was so full of feels I must admit I was crying during the finale. Jason has been urging Tek and I to complete the series so we could talk about it. We barely touched on it, but we did discuss our counterparts in the show. Meet team NTJR (someone make up the team word for me please?) We all agree that with Velvet’s box weapon that power is defiantly my power. Tek is the cyborg general, and Jason is a variation of Flint (we had to replace his trumpet with a cast iron skillet. Rory of course is a Grimm.
I had some difficulty with this piece. At first I was going to draw us all in a battle pose, but that was very tricky. One, fitting everything on one page and still keeping it a daily creativity. What I was planning would have ended up being a many day if not longer project. Another issue was turning Velvet into me. The character is not just slim, almost all of the characters are tiny, but she is one of the few who lacks curves. I am full of curves, I’m all curves. I’m fat, and round, and curvy, and not Velvet’s shape. So figuring that out with her battle costume was tricky. Her Beacon uniform would have been easier. I had it mostly down when I got the notion to do the four split screen image idea that the RWBY logo has. Once I decided to go with that, everything got easier.
All told though I spent more hours on this than most Daily Creativity projects. Still, I’m happy with it, and it’s very personal to me. Sure, it’s fan art for an Anime, but it’s also a great story, and something I share with the friends in this piece.
Nuchtchas and Tek are joined by Marc and Mark (encaf1) of Epic and The Weird Show to talk about Holiday movies. They discuss the best and the worst of holiday films and even mention a few TV shows that have had some great specials. What’s your favorite? Let us know!
There is a big difference between indie podcasts and corporate podcasts. We’ll discuss the two, the traits you’d find in each, and the differences. What fills up your podcatcher? Indie podcasts? Or corporate ones?
