Two Brown Girls - Episode 30
On this week’s episode of 25G we discuss the fuckery that is “Harriet Tubman Sex Tape”, the #SolidarityIsForWhiteWomen tag, Oprah and respectability politics, Kal Penn’s disappointing defense of Stop and Frisk, and Lena Waithe’s new project ‘Twenties’.
This is how you do a movie poster.

Two Brown Girls - Episode 28
On this week’s episode of 25G we discuss Fariha’s recent run-in with a white male who believes class struggle is more important/damaging than racism and sexism, and answer your questions! We give our takes on POC culturally appropriating other POC, Chris Brown’s treatment as opposed to other known (white) celebrity abusers, Beyonce lightening her skin, and our favorite books. Zeba also makes a phrophetic comment about the new Doctor, hence our Podcast image this week (we also figure that more people will listen if they see Peter Capaldi’s face???)

Two Brown Girls - Episode 27
On this week’s episode of 25G we discuss Comic-Con and the Hunger Games, Kim Kardashian’s problematic and colorist comments about her own daughter, the Juror B29 interview, the one problem with Orange is the New Black, race and gender in Pacific Rim & why Fariha/everyone needs to see it, and the new Half of a Yellow Sun trailer (stay till the end if you want to hear Zeba’s awful Nigerian accent). We also answer listener questions about appropriation of the hijab and Michael Fassbender’s alleged domestic abuse.

We are beyond excited for some of the movies on the Toronto Film Festival slate this year! And look at all the fine men: Idris, Andre (as Jimi Hendrix!!!), Yasiin, Chiwetel… damn bruh.
Full lineup here.
Here are Z and Fariha’s picks for this week on Netflix, including new releases and older releases that we think you should see, you know, before you die. Big big recommendation on The House I Live In, about America’s fucked up “War on Drugs”, and Mama Africa, which examines the fascinating life of Miriam Makeba (who was essentially the Beyonce of Africa).
