Orthodox Jewish women shooting the breeze about the past, present, and future of fandom. Hosted by Michal Schick, featuring Tamar Herman, SM Rosenberg, and special guests!
In this special episode, in honor of the late Princess Leia, the Nice Jewish Fangirls dive deep into their reflections on Carrie Fisher's first memoir, Wishful Drinking. They also obsess over and critique Outlander, Colourpop makeup, and "Strange the Dreamer."
Feeling a need for fictional wisdom and solace? In our seventh episode, the Nice Jewish Fangirls explore revolutions of all sorts in The Hunger Games, Lord of the Rings, Crown Duel by Sherwood Smith [spoilers!], Babylon 5, Star Trek:Deep Space Nine, Harry Potter, and Avatar: The Last Airbender. We also obsessed over Korean healing songs, the 1961 home run race, and The Queen's Thief series by Megan Whalen Turner.
Our sixth episode of Nice Jewish Fangirls features the trio discussing current obsessions, including the new Netflix show "A Series of Unfortunate Events," and highlighting the qualities of certain fictional leaders in light of the American presidential inauguration. Features our insight on politicans from "The West Wing," "Game of Thrones," "Babylon 5," and "The Vorkosigan Saga."
In the fifth episode of Nice Jewish Fangirls, the trio previews their soon-to-be obsessions of 2017. From Beauty and the Beast to American Gods, Brandon Sanderson to Power Rangers, here's everything you need to get psyched for the shiny new year!
On the fourth episode of Nice Jewish Fangirls, the threesome commemorates Carrie Fisher and other pop culture icons we lost in 2016. This ep also features a conversation about what was wrong and what, little, was right about "Rogue One." Contains spoilers.
In our third, and very festive, episode, we offer up our services as Jewish Cultural Consultants to the DC TV universe, fangirl excessively over Baby Groot, Peter Sarsgaard, and a Korean TV show filled with goblins and grim reapers, and then share all of our favorite geeky gift recommendations for the holidays. Happy Chanukah, everyone!
In the second episode, the Nice Jewish Fangirls discuss their latest obsessions- Nile Wilson, Ally McBeal, The West Wing- and fall in deep when discussing Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them. The thorough, SPOILER HEAVY, discussion included the NJF’s take on the films in general, the (essentially nonexistent) Jewish elements, and problematic casting in regards to Johnny Depp’s participation in the franchise.
For our first episode, the Nice Jewish Fangirls dive deep into our most recent obsessions. First, we cross the line between sports and fandom, and then gush over the wonder of Wonder Woman. (And learn how to pronounce Gal Gadot!) Finally, we explore the galaxy far, far away and discuss the upcoming Star Wars: Rogue One.
