Hi from my hiatus!

A quick update: Unfortunately the episode planned to end my mini hiatus fell through, so now I'm looking for someone who'd like to talk to me about their OTP. Any and all ships welcome that haven't been covered before!

With popslash we're moving into dangerous waters, as I talk with stellarbisexual about the first Real Person ship for this podcast (not counting the special Patreon episode). However, mostly we bond over being fandom olds and squee excitedly as we reminisce - not just about JC Chavez and Justin Timberlake but also some other shared fandoms.

When I realised I’d be visiting the famous horror franchise IT, I must admit to being just a bit apprehensive, since I’m a total wuss - but after all, I’d survived talking about cannibals before, in the episode about Hannibal. And when I talked with Xander about Richie Tozier and Eddie Kaspbrak (aka Reddie), I learned much to my surprise that this fandom likes its ship mostly in one flavour: fluff!

Arthur and Eames only share a handful of moments in Christopher Nolan’s Inception – however, the subjects of episode 18 somehow managed to take fandom by storm. Looking into the hows and whys and whatfors with Bucket was especially fun for me, because it’s been quite a while since an episode was about a pairing that I myself ship, too.

We revisit another fandom - this time, we’re looking at Boku No Hero Academia from the perspective of Aida, who ships previous podcast object Bakugou Katsuki with Kirishima Eijirou and shares some of the reasons why she loves how their relationship develops in canon as well as plenty of fanworks for you to enjoy.

In the longest and most indepth episode to date, we revisit the Marvel universe as Meeya delves into the decades-long history of Steve Rogers and Tony Stark in their many iterations.

Unsurprisingly, this episode contains themes not for the faint of heart - yet despite my own cannibalism squick, Stitch was a very insightful and fun interview partner, not just when it came to Hannigram. We found plenty of common fandom ground, leading to a few detours, which I hope you enjoy as much as I did!

Apologies for the delay in posting, but I promise my chat with Holly about Finn, Rey and the role of race in fandom is totally worth it, even if it’s a bit heavier fare than normal, focusing more on meta than fanworks – although of course those are mentioned, too! :)

Episode postponed

As you might have noticed I wasn't able to post episode 14 (Finn x Rey with diversehighfantasy) last week. Unfortunately my laptop died on me, and while I'm hoping to get it fixed I just received a call that they found another serious issue. :(

I won't know more about timeframe (and cost) until tomorrow and can't work on the podcast on my work laptop (which I'm currently using). I apologise for the delay and will keep you up to date on the podcast website, Patreon, Tumblr and Twitter. Please bear with me - I promise, the upcoming episodes are worth the wait!

After having to scrap the originally planned episode 13, luckily L.J. jumped into the breach and talked with me about the canon femslash ship of Korra and Asami from Legend of Korra, the sequel series to Avatar: The Last Airbender.
