Fangirl Happy Hour was founded on the principle that crying over the emotional lives of fictional characters is better as a shared experience, cheap booze optional. This podcast is us chatting about things in pop culture and fandom in loud verbal capslock. Sometimes we'll swear a lot, discuss books that aren't even out yet to torture people, and recommend explicit fanwork where dudes make out. Ana and Renay host the biweekly explosion of emotions with Tuesday updates. Come join us and bring all your weird interests. You'll fit right in.
