The Fifth Element is chock-full of tropes and images that paint a grim picture of the role of women in the future. The real trick is to tease out which parts are satire and which parts are just plain sexist.

Dylan and Caroline sat down to talk all about gender, sci-fi, and the world-building of The Fifth Element.

Hello everybody,

We are really excited to say that we are going to be expanding the content that is going to be available to you on the NetFreaks feed!  

Starting this week, both NetFreaks - Your Guide to Netflix Originals and Organized Prime - Your Guide to Amazon Originals will be published and available on this feed.  That means that in addition to all of your favorite Netflix series, you'll also be able to listen to our coverage of series produced by Amazon such as The Man in the High Castle, Transparent or those distributed worldwide by Amazon like American Gods!

Also we are really excited to say that we will be adding a third show starting in June that will be covering HBO Original Programming past and present we're calling Cable Ready - Your Guide to HBO Originals.  Starting with a retrospective on the first six seasons of Game of Thrones, we will then be covering each and every episode of Season 7 before looking back on series such as The Sopranos, The Wire, Deadwood, Curb Your Enthusiasm while covering existing shows like Westworld, Silicon Valley and Veep!

To reflect these changes this feed will be renamed Electric Streams Media to reflect all of the shows we produce, but NetFreaks will still be published and branded as individual episodes.

Hope you are as excited as we are as we start the Summer of 2017 with a bang.  We look forward to spending a lot more time with you in the future!

David, Adam and Javier are joined by Vic Miller from the Showdown Podcast and the Miller Times Podcast, as they discuss the show that garnered a scintillating 100% Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, but didn't avoid controversy along the way, Dear White People.

Set against the backdrop of a predominantly white Ivy League university where racial tensions bubble just below the surface, Dear White People is an hilarious send-up of “post-racial” America that weaves together the universal story of finding one’s own identity and forging a wholly unique path. The satirical series -- which picks up where the acclaimed 2014 film by the same name left off – follows a group of Winchester University’s students of color as they navigate a diverse landscape of social injustice, cultural bias, political correctness (or lack thereof) and sometimes misguided activism in the millennial age.

Heather and Adam throw on their East West leather jackets and talk about the new, sort of based on real life comedy from Netflix!

Girlboss was created by Kay Cannon and executive produced by Charlize Theron, Laverne McKinnon, Beth Kono, Christian Ditter and Sophia Amoruso. It “loosely” tells the real life, rags-to-riches story of Sophia Amoruso, CEO of “Nasty Gal Vintage”.  Ironically enough, at the end of 2016, four months before the premiere of Girlboss, Nasty Gal filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
