    Episode 43 - Once & Always

    Episode 43 - Once & Always

    Just in time for Cosmic Fury, the Toku Ladies have a lot of thoughts about Once & Always! In which we plot a lot of fanfic, have a lot of feelings, and basically fangirl like mad for an hour.

    Episode 42 - But Wait, It Gets Gayer!

    Episode 42 - But Wait, It Gets Gayer!

    In which the Toku Ladies review season 2 of Dino Fury, and flail about the upcoming Cosmic Fury.

    Tl;dr Dino Fury is the greatest and everyone should watch it.

    Also, this somehow manages to be our 42nd actual episode, but is technically episode 50 if you count interviews. So clearly, queer power rangers are the answer to life, the universe, and everything.

    Episode 41: Broken Pedestals

    We're back with special guests SecretRangerFan and Ryorin!

    In which we discuss what to do when your heroes are allegedly guilty of various incredibly serious accusations, discuss the weird parasocial relationship we have with the actors in PR fandom, and how to separate art from artist... and if you still can when these sorts of allegations have been made.

    Unfortunately Ter had to miss this episode due to computer issues.

Vital perspective in the Toku community

There are enough straight white guy voices dominating Toku fandom, and the Toku Ladies prove why it’s so important to have diverse perspectives within a community — especially one that was diverse to begin with! Even though I don’t have the breadth of Toku knowledge these hosts do (and thus have no idea what they’re talking about sometimes) I still love their thoughtful insights on fandom and media, which often run counter to “mainstream” conversations or highlight areas that simply aren’t talked about enough, including social justice, representation, and inclusion. It’s not just a good show, it’s an IMPORTANT one.

Thoughtful, insightful view.

I've been listening to this podcast for a few months, and I've enjoyed the hard look at uncomfortable practices in the toku environment and fandom as well. I've learned a lot and hope to keep enjoying the way they celebrate the fandom and the media we all love!
