I Loove this podcast!!!!

Hey gorgeous ppl reading this... this podcast is awesome. Eisha and Kris are so funny and smart. I love horror and Sci-fi and I came over here from the losers club (Eisha is one of my favorites on that show) I love the break down of complex important issues involving race or the lack of diversity in my favorite genres. IM SO HAPPY I have this as a resource to find new and interesting writing that is not as main stream. Thank you ladies! Keep up the great work!!! 💜✨🦋💕😎
