    Ep. 026 Faith in the Whoniverse

    “I believe…I believe I haven’t seen everything, I don’t know. It’s funny, isn’t it? The things you make up, the rules. If that thing had said it came from beyond the universe, I’d believe it. But before the universe? Impossible. Doesn’t fit my rule. Still, that’s why I keep traveling. To be proved wrong.” The […]

    Ep. 022 The Women Who Waited

So good!

Just started listening to some old episodes, and I love it! I kind of went away from Doctor who for a while because of how much the problematic stuff niggled at me, but I’m just getting back into it and I love how Toya and Eugenia model loving something while being unabashed in their criticism of its problematic elements. They are a delight to listen to!

Radical and So Necessary

This podcast, hosted by two of the most badass women I have ever heard in my life, is an amazing exploration of a widely beloved show, Doctor Who. Coming to the show with their own perspectives, lived experiences, and love for the show, they pour that love into constructively tearing the show apart to create more spaces for different folks in the whoniverse. They are unapologetic in their critique and radical in their deconstruction of this popular culture phenomenon. There is more possibility and complexity in the show than might be seen at first glance, and like the TARDIS, they make it bigger on the inside- so step inside with them.
