05: The Untamed, part 2 (with Aja Romano)

SPOILERS!! This is an uncensored and non-linear discussion. If you haven't watched The Untamed yet, please save this episode for when you do. Fan culture reporter Aja Romano only meant to sample a few episodes of The Untamed for a work assignment, but they fell down the rabbit hole like the rest of us. Their subsequent twitter thread became the stuff of legends, and it seemed only fitting that we reunite to talk about our one true love: Wangxian. In part two of this double-feature, Aja makes me tear up over the depths of Lan Wangji's love for Wei Wuxian, and we fixate on the magical, butt-healing properties of the Gusu cold spring. show twitter: @itsallfinepod my twitter: @allyspock

04: The Untamed, part 1 (Aja Romano returns!)

SPOILERS!! This is an uncensored and non-linear discussion. If you haven't watched The Untamed yet, please save this episode for when you do. Fan culture reporter Aja Romano only meant to sample a few episodes of The Untamed for a work assignment, but they fell down the rabbit hole like the rest of us. Their subsequent twitter thread became the stuff of legends, and it seemed only fitting that we reunite to talk about our one true love: Wangxian. Together, Aja and I navigate the murky and confusing waters of mainland Chinese media restrictions, talk about our own journeys into The Untamed, and scream about Wang Yibo. show twitter: @itsallfinepod my twitter: @allystawk

03: Inception with Aja Romano

Please forgive this humble podcaster for making you wait over two years for this episode. Aja Romano (@ajaromano) joins me to talk about Inception! It's a dream heist movie about style, men's fashion, and Edith Piaf, and is considered by many to be last great fandom of Livejournal. The conversation covers fandom at large, imagination as an outlet for isolation, and yes, don't worry, Arthur/Eames. Listeners, welcome back!

02: Hackers with Lucas Brown

I've met my match in remembering insignificant minutiae with Lucas Brown (@lokified), a fellow Canadian expat who hosts his own lovely podcast (@themathofyou). He also knows a lot about computers, which comes in handy, as we are talking about Hackers! It's a mid-90s movie about computer hackers and their l33t floppy discs, and if you haven't seen it, you're missing out! Lucas also talks about the time he schooled his own teacher on Macbeth. Anyway, type "cookie" you idiots! [Intro music is by Allison Stock, cover artwork is by Nathan Stockman.]

01: The Lymond Chronicles with Gavia Baker-Whitelaw

Gavia Baker-Whitelaw (@Hello_Tailor), who writes for the Daily Dot, is a self proclaimed fan of “gothic, operatic sumptuousness.” She is also entirely responsible for my Lymond problem. The Lymond Chronicles is six novels worth of emotionally satisfying fanfic tropes that have been elevated to masterful historical fiction. You've probably seen me screaming about it on twitter, but Gavia and I actually break down what these books are about. Spoilers have been bleeped out or removed entirely, so this should be safe for everyone to listen to! [Intro music is by Allison Stock, musical interlude is 'Glass Jar' by Tristen, cover artwork is by Nathan Stockman.]
