Welcome soft, sad freaks! Once a month, writer and longtime Tumblr user Lauren Shippen and longtime user-slash-Tumblr-employee Cher McAnelly dive deep into our favorite fandom site. We talk trending topics, share our new ships, and forecast upcoming fandoms. If you’ve ever gone feral over a fic or bonkers about one of your blorbos, this podcast is for you!

And remember: the password to the secret clubhouse is “shoelaces”.

This podcast is not produced by, nor officially affiliated with Tumblr in any way, beyond the fact that we told them about it and they said "rad!" and high fived us before skating away on their wheelies. We love you, Tumblr.

    35 - Shipping, the Winds Beneath Our Sails

Tumblr Lore and Great Fun

A fun and informative podcast about everyone’s favorite hellsite! Both hosts are very humorous and give insight to all the trends and history of Tumblr, along with their personal experiences in fandom and the way they’ve been able to make connections through this website. Can’t wait for more and to hear live reactions to vanilla extract!
