Hello, and welcome to another episode of Social Sci-Fi.
This month, I invited The Shake Ups, a local band to the Geek Cave
to watch and talk about cartoons. When I say local, I mean to
Indianapolis, but they run all over the Midwest and perform catchy
songs in costumes from their favorite cartoons. The Head Geek has
had them on the Indiana Geeking Podcast a few times, and
you are already familiar with Luisanna from year one of this
Now, I know it wasn't Saturday morning, it was Sunday afternoon,
but there was still cereal and we had a good time. If you didn't
grow up in the 80's watching Saturday morning cartoons, you missed
out. In the spirit of those times, we watched the Netflix originals
The Dragon Prince, Voltron: Legendary Defender,
and She-Ra and the Princesses of Power, and Steven
Universe Future which can be found on Cartoon Network. The
Shake Ups have released original music for all of these cartoons,
except for The Dragon Prince, and have also written and
performed music based on My Little Pony,
Scooby-Doo, He-Man, ThunderCats, and
others. They have also done covers of The Beatles, and They Might
be Giants. I am forgetting things, but you can find everything in
the links below.
You might wonder how cartoons fit the Social Sci-Fi
theme, but If you are familiar with any of the ones we watched, you
know that they are full of the kinds of things we love to talk
about on this podcast. I would also like to say it was an absolute
joy to have The Shake Ups over, and thank them for their time. Now,
pour yourself a bowl of sugary cereal, curl up on the floor with
whatever you listen to podcasts on, and join us for the next hour
as we talk cartoons, Saturday mornings, and playing albums
