Great overview of the hobby!
This podcast really helped me venture into the world of Asian ball-jointed dolls! I especially love the focus on intersectional topics surrounding the hobby such as feminism, imperialism, and gender. Please keep making episodes! It’s also great to have the “news”-type episodes as well — your analysis of the current goings-on of the hobby helped me better understand some of the larger issues at play. Thank you!
I love this podcast for just existing.
