What kind of world do you want to live in? America has become a dangerous place and hate is exploding everywhere. Asians Americans are being yelled at, spit on, lit on fire, toddlers stabbed, acid thrown on their faces, bodies sliced, kicked, stomped, punched and shot dead. While most people are unaware.

Daily lives of Asians are being devastated by hate. We need non-Asians to speak up.

9:00 Pride and LGBTQ Representation

31:19 Loki First Impressions

Happy Pride!

This week we dedicate time to talking about LGBTQ representation in pop-culture and how our awareness of the importance of that representation has changed over time. Within the content we consume, where are we seeing representation? 

*Spoilers for Loki*

Then we give our first impressions of Loki! Who’s on board? Who's not? What do we think the god(s) of mischief has/(have) in store? And what do we think of that REVEAL in episode 2?!

With the focus of Phase 4 seeming to be the breakdown of reality, we're excited to see this potentially head towards ~madness~!

Tune in! and let us know what you think of Loki so far.

12:20 Intro to the Sequel Trilogy

17:09 The Force Awakens

26:56 The Last Jedi

1:00:53 The Rise of Skywalker

"Star Wars rhymes", but our opinions don't!

This week, we revisit and rehash our opinions on the Star Wars Sequel Trilogy! We discuss our initial reactions and compare them to our current day opinions. Most importantly, we talk about why we feel the way we feel about TFA, TLJ, and TROS - tbh, some of our opinions have changed but some have stayed the same. 

The conclusion: some of us love them, some of us hate them, and some of us are generally “meh” about them. 

We also talk about some of our favorite/least favorite moments, characters, droids, etc.

Tune in! And, let us know what you think of the sequels. 

And let us know your answer to our surprise question!

12:06 Falcon and The Winter Soldier 

This episode, we take a break from Star Wars and give our final thoughts on The Falcon and The Winter Soldier!

What did we like? What didn’t we like? Did it live up to our expectations? Should characters who suffer immense trauma go to therapy? Apparently not, Sam will take care of it. We also discuss how so much of The Flag Smashers objectives relate to real world issues - and how that creates much more impactful storytelling. 

How did it work with so many villains? Do we all agree that John Walker has a punchable face? And, Sharon Carter’s a Skrull, right?

As usual, there’s a surprise question at the end of the show so don’t leave early! Find us on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook or send us an email at kryptontoalderaan@gmail.com and let us know your answer!
