  1. Did you folks really recommend a podcast in Geek Out Loud that spent a bunch of time railing against disabled and LGBTQ+ representation in Star Wars?

  2. That is not how I would characterize Steve’s comments in that episode. If you’re new to Geek Out Loud and you haven’t heard much from Steve, I could see how you might get the wrong idea.
