Fantastic podcast

This is a great podcast where two friends can offer me a fresh new perspective on the stuff I love. This podcast is the antidote to toxic fandom. Thank you.

Love Their Perspectives

New to the pod! Tuning in for their WandaVision coverage and thoroughly enjoying myself.

Finally!

Someone I can pretend to talk to about Picard since none of my friends watched it! 😂 I'm really enjoying their enthusiastic and energetic discussions, even of material I'm not super familiar with. Desi Geek Girls is going on my Hugo nom ballot!
