Quick update: Unfortunately the episode planned to end my mini hiatus fell through, so now I’m looking for someone who’d like to talk to me about their OTP. Any and all ships welcome that haven’t been covered before!
The Shipping (Pod)Cast Posts
With popslash we’re moving into dangerous waters, as I talk with stellarbisexual about the first Real Person ship for this podcast (not counting the special Patreon episode). However, mostly we bond over being fandom olds and squee excitedly as we reminisce – not just about JC Chavez and Justin Timberlake but also some other shared fandoms.
Surprisingly, the fandom of Richie Tozier and Eddie Kasprak (Reddie) from horror franchise IT likes their ship mostly in one flavour: fluff.
Arthur and Eames only share a handful of moments in Christopher Nolan’s Inception – however, the subjects of episode 18 somehow managed to take fandom by storm.
Inspired by the friendship between Dominic Sherwood & Matthew Daddario, who portray our OTP Jace & Alec, I took the opportunity to talk with some ladies from Jalec Squad about on- and off-screen chemistry, touching on the topic of real person shipping.
In episode 17 we revisit another fandom – this time, we’re looking at Boku No Hero Academia from the perspective of Aida, who ships previous podcast object Bakugou Katsuki with Kirishima Eijirou and shares some of the reasons why she loves how their relationship develops in canon as well as plenty of fanworks for you to enjoy.
In the longest and most-indepth episode to date, we revisit the Marvel universe as Meeya delves into the decades-long history of Steve Rogers and Tony Stark in their many iterations.
Unsurprisingly, this episode contains themes not for the faint of heart – yet despite my own cannibalism squick, Stitch was a very insightful and fun interview partner, not just when it came to Hannigram. We found plenty of common fandom ground, leading to a few detours, which I hope you enjoy as much as I did!
This first special Patreon episode is all about the awesome steampunky concept band Steam Powered Giraffe. They consist of a bunch of steam-powered robots, and @maya-zulf introduces me to their wide-ranging lore and funky music with great enthusiasm.
Apologies for the delay in posting, but I promise my chat with Holly about Finn, Rey and the role of race in fandom is totally worth it, even if it’s a bit heavier fare than normal.
