    Sailor Moon

    Kissing Cousins (only in English), Fish Eyes just wanna have fun, and "Gentle Uterus" attacks...

    Yeah we're talking about Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon!  Ashley welcomes back Vivian and welcomes Kat to the show to talk about the ICONIC property.  Truthfully this can't be the final time we talk about Sailor Moon because in broad strokes we've only scratched the surface.

    King of the Hill: Peggy Horror Picture Show

    Sorry all, thought this uploaded but I guess there was some issue... anytways!

    Available now right here, publicly April 1st!

    Ty Defoe Minisode Interview

    Ty Defoe Minisode Interview

    I'm really excited to share my conversation with my (Producer Ashley)'s friend Ty Defoe.  Ty and I talked the day after the inauguration of Joe Biden and that is reflected in the interview.  We also chat about Ty being on Broadway, working with (#Icon) Kate Bornstein, and helping the craft the indigenous representation and public acknowledgement of the crimes, treatment, and genocides committed against indigenous people throughout history in the North American Continent for this year's Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

    TY DEFOE (Giizhig) is from the Oneida and Ojibwe Nations. He is an interdisciplinary-hyphenated artist, activist, writer, cultural worker, and shape-shifter. As a two-spirit person Ty aspires to an integral approach to artistic projects, social justice, indigeneity, and environmentalism. Ty gained recognition in many circles around the world including a Grammy Award for his work on “Come to Me Great Mystery.” Ty’s global cultural arts highlights are: the Millennium celebration in Cairo, Egypt with the Call for Peace Drum and Dance Company; Turkey for the Ankara International Music Festival, and Festival of World Cultures in Dubai. Ty’s frequents his own community where he learned to hoop dance, eagle dance, and play a variety of wooden flutes.

K. Vollmer ,

Such a good podcast

How much do I love this podcast? So much that it’s become one of the shows I support on Patreon and make sure to share with my friends every month. The hosts are wonderful, and the variety of topics covered is expansive and illuminating. (For example I totally missed the news about a trans character in Alien, but the podcast covered it.) highly recommend giving it a listen if you need some good non-cis-centric listening :)

Love this pod!

Discovered this podcast today and I’ve been bingeing it and I love it! As a trans enby person who is also a cinephile I have a lot of thoughts and feelings ab Transness in the media, and I actively watch and enjoy media that is also transphobic, and it’s a complicated thing to deal with when a lot of your representation is detrimental to your identity, and this podcast is great bc I get to listen to the ruminations of other trans and enby folx is really awesome (especially since many of my trans friends are not participating into cinema lol). 10/10 would recommend to every who enjoys cinema and television etc!
