Kaleidotrope Podcast is a queer romantic comedy podcast set on a slightly magical college campus and playing around with romance tropes, particularly fanfiction tropes.



The plot centers around Drew and Harrison, two reluctant college radio co-hosts-turned-accidental-advice-givers who find themselves in the middle of the campus’s oldest mystery: Do happy endings really happen at Sidlesmith? Can you really find your trope?



And if the magic isn’t real, what does that mean for two polar opposites who find themselves falling for each other twice a week for half an hour on a suddenly popular radio show?

Kaleidotrope

This show is absolutely fantastic! I’m having to slow my pace and listen to the same episode multiple times because I don’t want to get to the end not knowing for sure if there is going to be a season two! I can literally feel the emotion during some portions that I literally find myself having to sit down and listen to every word while holding my breath! So good! So amazing! Rivals any good television program! This deserves some kind of podcast award! I cannot say enough about this show! Congrats to the cast and crew for making this show happen! Whatever I have to do to ensure there is another season, I will do it, click it, pay it, follow it, support it, promote it.... WHATEVER! Very well done! Congrats! - 08/13/19

Hopefully a season two?

I've really been missing this show since the first (??) season ended. Loved the banter and conversations between Harrison and Drew, and think it's a really loving exploration of tropes - not trying to overturn or tear them down, but investigate them in a fun and engaging way.

Beautifully written.

This podcast means so much to me; I’ve probably listened to it four times through in the past six months.

Okay, first of all, the romance is adorable and well-paced. This goes hand-in-hand with all the banter they do, which shows a MASTERY in dialogue; so often to they not say exactly what they mean, especially when they’re both pining for each other.

Second of all, the subversion of all these different tropes is unbelievably refreshing, and the main theme of love being a choice, being itself a subversion of the “love is magic” trope was really clever and inspiring!

The audio quality could be better, but it doesn’t detract from the writing.

In short: well-paced, well-written, with a subversive and inspiring message about love.
