Kaleidotrope Podcast is a queer romantic comedy podcast set on a slightly magical college campus and playing around with romance tropes, particularly fanfiction tropes.



The plot centers around Drew and Harrison, two reluctant college radio co-hosts-turned-accidental-advice-givers who find themselves in the middle of the campus’s oldest mystery: Do happy endings really happen at Sidlesmith? Can you really find your trope?



And if the magic isn’t real, what does that mean for two polar opposites who find themselves falling for each other twice a week for half an hour on a suddenly popular radio show?

PJ Brennan all the way ,

So GOOD

This podcast had everything - loveable characters, great character development, tons of LGBTQ+ rep, and the most important, it made me smile like a complete idiot practically 95% of the time listening. It’s such a feel-good podcast and one that I’ll definitely want to return to for future re-listens.
