Hard NOC Life: Crazy Random Acts of Convenience

Shawn returns to Hard NOC Life as he and Keith break down the week that was in Nerd Pop.

This week, Shawn talks more about decolonizing fandom (1:00) and decentering whiteness in pop culture (10:00). Meanwhile, Keith goes on an extended rant about Crazy Rich Asians backlash (14:00). Then they turn to television and talk about overlooked shows like HBO’s Random Acts of Flyness (23:30), Netflix’s Kim’s Convenience and One Day at a Time (30:00) before diving into a show that definitely isn’t being overlooked — the Picard Star Trek show (35:00). Finally, Shawn and Keith share what’s nerd poppin’ this week (44:00), including the current run of Marvel’s Fantastic Four comic, Ruby Rose as Batwoman, the movie adaptation of Ron Wimberly’s Prince of Cats and Spike Lee’s BlackkKlansman.
