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.
Live Accessible Role Play with Nuance
Note: episode contains very mild spoilers for the series finale of Supernatural that you probably already saw because the internet really dropped the ball.
We are joined this week by the lovely and talented Nuance Vivian of Fast Times at D&D High
She has joined us to talk about her experiences with the accessibility in LARP events - and sometimes lack thereof. Between the seriousness, we also get to talk about N7 Day, reminisce about early childhood cartoons and how gay they made us, and more! Please check out more from Nuance at @shadowravyn
VOs, VAs, and AIs
This week we are so excited to have Blythe, of the Damsels of Dorkington, on to guest with us and share her experiences in her burgeoning new adventures as a Voice Actor! Blythe was one of the first friends we made when we began podcasting ourselves and so this was an inevitable collaboration.
Halloween Peanut Butter Balls
A new episode of Femsplained is here in time for Halloween! Avalon and Diana talk about their favorite things about Halloweens past and present and try to unlock some of the odd nostalgic mysteries of the holiday.
An Extremely ASMR Homework Episode
Yay! It's a homework episode! We have come together to recap our experiences with Spiritfarer, Kingdom Hearts, True Blood, and Closed Captions and it's a mix of some serious insight and giggling over cartoon raccoons. Please hang with us through the weird ASMR beginning we didn't mean it, I swear.
Closed Captions Make Me Rock Hard
In this episode, we welcome our second-ever guest Femsplainer, Celeste, who shares with us some of the information she studied while writing her dissertation on closed captioning in pornography! As expected, the subject matter gets a little spicy, but also super enlightening!
Spiritfarer: Gamifying Therapy
Very mild and gentle spoilers may be in this episode!
Diana hurt her shoulder and stayed in bed playing Spiritfarer for 3 days straight, falling in love with a new video game for the first time in ages - now she finally has the opportunity to gab about it! Yes, there is a slightly hesitant game of FMK att the end, and we even snuck in a few moments of truth and honesty. Let us know if you have played this "cozy management game about death."
