The Whole Spiel, with Katherine Locke and Laura Silverman (Episode 39)
The Nice Jewish Fangirls sat down with Katherine Locke and Laura Silverman, editors of and contributors to "It's a Whole Spiel", a collection of young adult Jewish fiction! Why do we need Jewish YA fiction? How do you capture the spectrum of Jewish realities in one anthology? And ALL THE JEWISH BUCKY BARNES, PLZ! The Fangirls also go over their current obsessions, which include Tudor history, podficcing, and The Great British Bakeoff: The Pros! (Plus, maybe Avengers Bubonic Plague fan-fiction? Maybe.)

One Last Shawarma: Endgame Revjew (Episode 38)
The Nice Jewish Fangirls assemble to discuss the movie of all movies, Avengers: Endgame! After a spoiler-free introduction, Michal, Tamar, and SM share their thoughts and answer listener questions on the Big One. Did Endgame stack up to all 22 movies of the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Is Nebula the secret MVP? Does the movie repeat disappointing tropes? Is Thor, like, okay? And can we talk forever about Black Widow? The Nice Jewish Fangirls also obsesses over a baby deer-turned-K-Pop-phenomenon, the “movies for your ears” podcast The Truth, and the Instagram short film Eva Stories. Links! This baby deer at the L.A. Zoo looks just like K-Pop star Haechan, fans assert The Truth podcast Eva Stories on Instagram Get in touch with us: Twitter: @JewishFangirls Facebook: Review us on Apple Podcasts!

Purim, Seriously (Episode 37)
It’s almost time for Purim, and this year, the Nice Jewish Fangirls are considering a slightly more serious side of the holiday. Michal and SM are joined by rabbi, author, and certified nerd MaNishtana to break down the issues of cultural appropriation and Blackface that often occur on Purim. Why is it so hurtful? How do fictional stories deal with appropriation and Blackface, and what does that teach us? And how do this misguided costumes completely contradict the joyfulness and generosity that define Purim? The Fangirls and MaNishtana also share their obsessions over new trailers for Avengers: Endgame and Aladdin, and the Netflix series Travelers and The Dragon Prince… and come to the dawning realization that literally everything is now Disney (except Star Trek.)
