Geek Girl Riot celebrates Netflix’s new series High on the Hog before throwing it back to some classic trainwrecks. Then we revisit some interviews with the cast & crew of Finding You.
High on the Hog with Heather Turner
High on the Hog: How African American Cuisine Transformed America is out now and it’s about to speak to your soul. The documentary takes you on a journey through food to show you the rich history and influences of Black culture on cuisine. Lakefront Film Fest director and film & food connoisseur Heather Turner joins the show to chat with Sherin about the incredible new series, which you can watch now on Netflix.
“Food writer and sommelier, Stephen Satterfield takes us on an epic journey from Benin to the Carolina coast and beyond by sharing the dishes that have always nourished us. Through those dishes, Stephen and chefs, historians, activists, cowboys, and descendants inspire our laughter, our tears, and our pride. What a joy to be High on the Hog.”
We continue our journey through the year’s most epic trainwrecks with a throwback segment. Sherin, Alex, and Monique kick off with Gorilla Glue Girl who has us stuck to her story. Then they get into Lil Uzi Vert who’s trying to morph into a Crystal Gem x Vision. Yup, there’s a whole lotta nonsense to get through…until there’s only one question left to ask: Why is everybody so mad at Phoebe Bridgers for smashing her guitar?
Finding You with Rose Reid, Jedidiah Goodacre, and Brian Baugh
