Welcome to Woke Doctor Who, a podcast about race and representation in Doctor Who with an Asian lady from DC and a Black lady from Baltimore. In our inaugural episode, we introduce ourselves and discuss why we care so much that our favorite show feature people that look like us, our family, and our friends. We also chat about British imperialism, gutsy casting choices, firsts, and the future.

I love this podcast!
I first heard Toya and Eugenia on The Gayly Prophet. Not only are they thoughtful and inclusive in their analysis of Doctor Who, but their obvious love for the show makes this podcast that much more enjoyable. If you are interested in race, gender, sexuality, and representation as it relates to the Whoniverse, I highly recommend this podcast!
Great who-cast and more!
I listen to a lot of podcasts, but very few about fandom keep my interest. This is the first Dr Who pod that has felt worthwhile. Toya and Eugenia do an amazing job breaking down the show and do this really great thing where their friendship shines, but keeps the listener from feeling left out. I love their bonus non-whovian eps too. Be willing to be challenged and to have your views about the Doctor challenged, and come out of it with higher expectations of the show, yourself and the fandom.
I LOVE THIS SHOW
This is hands down the best Doctor Who podcast out there for anyone interested in lovingly applied critical analysis. It’s smart and funny and deep all at once. 10/10 highly recommend!
