The crew is back together as we dive into all that is Captain Marvel, the newest entry in the Marvel Cinematic universe. Entertainment news this week includes Steam’s disappointingly sad statements about their policies, The Division 2 and the Captain Marvel “boycott”. We’re FREQing out about The Nod, “Take me to Merch”, Tim Apple, American Heiress: The The Wild Saga of the Kidnapping, Crimes and Trial of Patty by Jeffrey Toobin

Join us in the bonus episode for even more (and I would say even better conversations about Captain Marvel) by becoming a backer at www.patreon.com/femfreq

This year the gaming industry had its own #MeToo moment, which revealed how common abuse, harassment and sexism are in the gaming community. We’ve created a set of new initiatives to combat this and have a fundraising goal of $25,000 by December 31. We’re in it to win it, but we need you!
