In turbulent times like these, fandom can prove a wonderful distraction and escape. Therefore I’m releasing my three Patreon specials for all my listeners in between the regular scheduled episodes. Today it's all about the awesome steampunk concept band Steam Powered Giraffe. They consist of a bunch of steam-powered robots (yes really!), and maya-zulf introduces me to their wide-ranging lore and funky music with great enthusiasm. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did! :)

Especially in these turbulent times, fandom can be a wonderful distraction, and this week Alyssa introduces me to the young adult book series The Folk of the Air by Holly Black and its main ship of Jude Duarte and Cardan Greenbriar.

Brienne and Tormund were never one of the big ships in the Game of Thrones fandom, but teamreylo was attracted to them right away. She makes a very good case as to why they could have made a great couple.

In this episode Elena and I talk about the HBO mini-series Chernobyl, which covered the 1986 nuclear plant disaster and its aftermath. Valery and Boris aka Valoris start out in a wary, almost antagonistic partnership and end up firm allies. No wonder Elena ships them!

Padme Amidala and Anakin Skywalker from the Star Wars prequel trilogy share the ultimate tragic story of forbidden love. Kaitie shares some of the things that appeal to her the most, despite me getting side-tracked by all sort of other fandom things. We also talk some more general Star Wars (and Jar Jar Binks in particular), because it’s almost impossible not to have opinions in this fandom.

We’re starting the new year with Miraculous Ladybug, another animated series, and the het pairing of Marinette Dupain-Cheng aka Ladybug and Chat Noir aka Adrien Agreste, who make up an entire love square all by themselves.

With She-Ra we’re back with a fandom I know nothing about, but August gives me a great primer on what makes Catra and Adora such a wonderful pairing – one with the definite potential to become canon, which makes a nice chance, especially for a lesbian couple.

A multi-fandom podcast for the shipper in you. To call Stucky a fandom juggernaut is to put it mildly, and Jen and myself have lots of fun exploring the vast realms of Steve Rogers and Bucky Barnes in the MCU.
