Geekquality.com,  the monthly podcast, and the companion Tumblr blog stand at the intersection of fandom and media criticism, with the goal of celebrating and encouraging diversity within the geek zeitgeist. The project was started in October 2011, at the inaugural GeekGirlCon where four of the six founding editors met for the first time. Geekquality is based on the belief that just because we adore our geek culture, it doesn't mean that we shouldn't analyze it and point out its flaws. Through the lenses of feminism, race, gender, sexuality, ability, and other unique perspectives, we look at our favorite media - film, television, books, video games, comics, and beyond - and discuss how it could be more inclusive and accessible. We hope you join the conversation and our growing community!

 Geekquality podcast - Episode 4 - Whedonverse!

In this episode of our podcast Elyse, Alice Marie, Lois and Moxie called each other up to talk about their many feelings about the Whedonverse. While, without a doubt, we all enjoy Joss Whedon's output and are happy to have a fellow geek creating exciting content, certain problematic elements of his creative output need to be discussed. Among things discussed, Moxie breaks it down on the erasure of bisexuality in Buffy, Lois is through with Firefly because of the show's treatment of Chinese culture, and Alice Marie has a lot of feelings (both good and bad) about Dollhouse and the show's premise. And then there's that one movie he just did. With all the butts. The episode then finishes off with a great (although not Whedon-related) tangent discussing Joan Watson and the upcoming series Elementary. And there ya have it, folks.
