Lots of interesting fun

It’s great to listen to people like yourself talking about the things you love. You can hear the way they’ve handled problems you’ve had or the similar experiences.

Or listen about something you don’t yet do but want to try, it’ll help you get out there and do it.

Deep Dive into Content Creators

I have been wonderfully surprised how insightful these episodes have been. Understanding where an artist comes from is quite informative. Tales From the Fandom is doing us all a great service by allowing media creators to talk more about their past. (Which reveals trends and popularizes typically under-appreciated hobbies.)

Really fantastic. Please give it a listen!
