Sunday Squee: Métis in Space

The Sunday Squee is about things that make me happy and excited. From books to movies to television shows to podcasts, I'll highlight less commonly known things as a way to share what I love. If you want to join in the Sunday Squee, please link back to me, magnifying both of our joy.

Sunday Squee: Métis in Space

I love learning about perspectives vastly orthogonal to my own, and Métis in Space definitely qualifies while addressing two things I love beyond reason: science fiction / fantasy and overthinking things. About once a month Molly Swain and Chelsea Vowel, two Métis women, select an item of scifi / fantasy pop culture and watch it, drinking heavily, before reviewing it from a Métis perspective. Most of the time they're not fans, but every now and then a true fannish rant emerges to delight and amaze! In addition to the story analysis, each season has a thru-line story of some sort. In Season One it was "Ask a Môniyâw", where the points of view of the white settlers were included. Those were superseded for various reasons, including cruel and unusual punishment. Season Two brought us dispatches from Molly-and-Chelsea-in-the-future and the Church of George, which won't be founded for a while but which will be instrumental in the future to come! Once the excitement around those early dispatches dies down, Season Three brings us the arrival of Girl-Champlain, an alien creature who discovered Colonizing and decided to begin with Molly and Chelsea's broom closet. Each is in every way delightful.

Every episode is wonderful; there are twenty-eight so far, and I really can't recommend listening to them all enough. I've learned so much, and laughed so much, and look forward to every new episode like the precious gift it is. If you want some of my favorites, look below, but seriously - pour out a glass of wine with a French description and drink along to them all!
