The future is for everyone.
Geek Herring takes a look at the world of geek in a critical way, while keeping conversation engaging and welcoming.
I think it's a really important movement to continue to talk about feminism in a way that educates and gets somebody to stop and think about the impact of actions or words in both positive and negative circumstances. Geek Herring does just that.
Amanda & Monika have amazing chemistry together, and it makes every episode an enjoyable listen.
I'm looking forward to following your journey guys, keep it up!
