Articulate hosts & great content
I found this podcast recently with the Sin City episode. Being a female nerd, I expected all sorts of mansplaining and lowest common denominator content (because that is often the sad truth of nerd culture). I was *very* surprised and pleased to instead listen to a podcast that has very articulate hosts who really analyze the topics. I also like how they discuss “problematic” topics without sounding preachy or overly “woke.” I went back and started downloading from 2014 and am now binging.
Awesome Geekery Podcast
I have been listening since I met the hosts at a convention and have enjoyed every episode
