You could say MetaMOREshina

I’m absolutely charmed and enriched by this show. Critical analysis, tangents, monster effing—I want it all.

Intelligent and fun

Really good topics, knowledgeable hosts, fun chats. Recommended to all consumers of genre fiction, especially those with a feminist and cynical eye.
Only downsides are the occasional rant that goes on for a bit too long, or the excessive question intonation but that might just be bc I’m British so I notice it a lot. A bit of vocal creak too sometimes. This is minor tho.
I can foresee this podcast growing quite big to be honest
