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!

In this episode, Alice Marie, Lois & Moxie, along with guest Rick, talk about the way geeks and nerds are portrayed in the media. They go into why The Big Bang Theory just doesn't work, discuss what the good representations are, and go on possibly one of the funniest tangents in our recording history so far, with Misfits sex talk.
