Dorking Out Episode 50: The Wonder Woman Edition

Hey there, dorks. In this week’s episode, we review “Wonder Woman” with some very special guests: Laura, Chris’s better half, and Margo D. from Book vs. Movie. There was a lot riding on the success of “Wonder Woman.” Would audiences come out to see a female superhero movie? Would the DC Universe finally make a good movie that rivals Marvel’s long-running and critically acclaimed franchise? “Wonder Woman” made more than $100 million at the box office, but is it good? We talk about that.

In our second second, Chris and Sonia talk about the recent controversies surrounding comedians Kathy Griffin and Bill Maher. How far is too far when it comes to comedy?

And finally, we end our show with what we’re dorking out about this week, including the return of Sonia’s other podcast, Old Movies, New Beer, and Chris’s recent Emmy win.
