In this podcast, two long distance friends take turns teaching each other about their geeky interests and their queer, feminist experiences living in the world of nerd culture. Join us as we discuss nerd topics such as video games, tabletop gaming, anime, sci-fi, and fantasy as well as personal topics such as sexuality, growing up awkward, mental health, and our love for one another.
Queer Arcana 101
We are delighted to have the opportunity to chat with some of the members of Queer Arcana, a queer drag Dungeons & Dragons experience. We really got to speak about our love of fantasy, performing, and experimenting with identity through the lense of RPGs and performance. Please, please do yourself a favor and check out their show on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/QueerArcana

Chasing the High of the Scholastic Book Fair
In this mutual episode, we take a big hop back to the last time we were truly happy, the Scholastic Book Fair. Which, thankfully, gave us a chance to talk about Animorphs again. Come on this memory lane trip, and also PLEASE check out our friends at Secret Histories of Nerd Mysteries wherever you listen to podcasts!
Black Sails, the Prequel to Muppet Treasure Island
In this episode Diana tells Avalon the entire plot of Black Sails, a Starz original series prequel to the story Treasure Island. Featuring a long discussion about strip clubs v. burlesque, and a shockingly small amount about Muppet Treasure Island!
In this episode, Avalon tells Diana about the tiny (but epic) fantasy series she grew up with (and is now revisiting) Redwall. Diana is pretty peeved that no one told her about it before now, frankly.
