Welcome to West Coast Podvengers, a new podcast collective featuring hosts from Fake Geek Girls, View from the Gutters, and Arc Reactions. On each monthly episode, we’ll be discussing news and topics related to geeky news in depth.
For our first episode, we’re discussing the sexual harassment accusations levied at major figures in the comic community, particularly Eddie Berganza, asking how we can make the industry a safer, better place for everyone.
Since recording, DC has come out with a statement regarding the accusations. We believe our points stand.
Warning: We did not edit this episode for cursing. Please listen at your discretion.
