In this episode Grey and I get our geek on, not just about our shared love of Sherlock Holmes but also detouring a few times about fandom in general and generally having a blast.
The Shipping (Pod)Cast Posts
I’m thinking of creating a first special episode for Patreon, probably in the form of a round table discussion. Which topics would you be most interested in?
Episode 40 (November 14, 2020): Spot x Race (Newsies) with Savannah
(Early release for Patreon supporters!)
We stay in anime/manga territory as I learn that “Kyouhaba is good!”, to paraphrase Honey, whose enthusiasm for this ship is absolutely infectious. We also detour a little, talking about fandom as a place of community and incredibly creativity.
We’re going into anime/manga territory, but luckily Mel is happy to introduce me to the BakuDeku ship in the longest episode to date.
In this episode, Alison has to introduce me to the pairing of Dick Grayson and Jason Todd as we explore the DC multiverse and talk about how this ship works in any world.
Just a quick video greeting – I hope this finds you well and enjoying a wonderful day, whatever form it might take. Here’s to a new year filled with joy, happiness and many, many fandoms and ships!
With Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson series we’re covering our first predominantly book-based fandom, and Takaraphoenix has to give me a newbie’s guide to the Percy-Nico ship and fandom. Luckily she’s the exactly right person to ask, having created something like 250 fanworks for the ship alone.
The podcast has reached the point where I’ve had to start buying Pro accounts, and I’m hoping for your support to keep me going. There are so many fandoms, so many ships still to explore!
The topic of this episode is the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the ship of Tony Stark and Bruce Banner. Kimmy and I chat about the appeal of Bruce and Tony, both as separate characters and as a ship, but also about the way their comics backstories inform fandom.
