About Us

Welcome to Grounded Geeks, where we make the geek world relevant. Your parents may tell you that comic books and superheroes have no bearing on real life. Aman and Lena (a brother and sister duo) are here to tell you that that’s just not the case. Join us as we discuss what all that superhero mumbo jumbo says about race, society, politics, and global affairs.

Episode 06 - Independence Day

Episode 05 - CivilWar II (Not the same as Ep. 3. We promise)

EIn our quest to make the geek world relevant, this episode is all about Marvel's new event, Civil War II. Which is NOT the same as Captain America: Civil War the movie. So don't worry. This isn't a repeat of our 3rd episode. So hold on to your seats listeners, as we hit you with heavy issues of privacy, civilian rights, terrorism, bias, and much much more! And a disclaimer by a terrible Lyndon B. Johnson impersonator!

Episode 04 - X-Men: Apoca-meh

EThis episode is centered around the new X-Men movie, X-Men: Apocalypse. Even though the movie was a massive disappointment, we still have a lot to talk about. We grew up loving X-Men as kids, and as pseudo-adults, we now know why! We talk about the X-Men and their relevance to race and LGBT people, and also how X-Men/Inhumans are metaphors for Muslims in America. Of course, we do still critique the movie, and how it lacked the soap-opera element that made X-Men a thing. Come join us! And find the show notes here: https://medium.com/@GroundedGeeks
