It’s time for another round of STAR WARS FEELINGS. This time, we’re chatting about The Last Jedi, heroism, legacies, and why Rose Tico is the greatest.
We’re talking about Overwatch and fan communities in episode 65! Join us for shipping, a symbiotic relationship, and postive aesthetics versus positive change.
Welcome to episode 64, in which we fundamentally destroy all humor by examining it and explaining every joke. Except Jim Carrey’s teeth, which remain an enigma and a horror to all.
Welcome to episode 55, in which we discuss the fashion, color schemes, and potential feminism of Sailor Moon season one! Which Sailor Scout are we? Does ‘weaponized femininity’ apply here? How has Sailor Moon changed the landscape of worldwide media? Also, a laugh track.
Welcome to episode 48, in which we discuss the role of the witch in pop culture and our own lives. What is it about magic-using women and the association with darkness and evil that gets us–and so many others–all fired up? We’re doing our best to figure it out. Also, Merri’s going to be on a panel at GeekGirlCon! Check it out here—it’s the one on magical girls at 1:30 pm Saturday. Hope to see you there!

Check it out, and if you check out Fallen London, be sure you add Missy (superstitions) and Hannah (Hannah Failbetter). We won’t send you boxes of rats. Probably.
We’re back after a whirlwind weekend at Emerald City Comicon with a late episode on apologies. What makes a good apology? How do you learn from your mistakes? Aren’t we all just too oversensitive? (No. No we’re not.)
We’re back with episode 35, discussing endings, why they’re heartbreaking, and why sometimes cutting it short is better than letting things go on too long. Topics include Firefly, Supernatural, and Magic in North America as well as mourning the loss of all our faves.
We’re back with episode 32, discussing historical fiction, period pieces, and Hamilton. What responsibilities do writers of historical fiction have? What’s so appealing about looking into the past? How important is realism when looking at historical fiction? All these things and a passionate discussion about how great Hamilton is – what more could you want?
