    October Roundup & November Reading Challenge

    October Roundup & November Reading Challenge

    Here's an episode we had a lot of fun working on - our October and November roundups. The reading prompt for October was #WitchShit (listen for Ava's disappointing read) and for November's, it was "Read a Retelling" (listen for Steph's disappointing read). But we were also blessed with some pretty awesome books, so don't think this is JUST a rant episode!

    S4E1: Fandomtastic Five

    Welcome back to Fandomtastic, your one-stop pod for books, banter, and bumpin' uglies (if anyone has a better euphemism for s*x that starts with B, let us know). 

    Today we're discussing 5 of the reasons why we had to jump into an unplanned hiatus this past summer. We know, we know, this isn't exactly the steamy discussion you're used to, but we can promise it's absolutely full of chaos and shenanigans. We're really excited to be rolling out more episodes for you! Don't forget to check out our Instagram @fandomtasticpod for more updates!
