About This Show
Marginally Geek is a podcast dedicated to showcasing the diversity that’s always been the cornerstone of the geek community. We do that by focusing on individual experiences. Each month we’ll be interviewing someone new about their life as a geek and all of the ways it does, and doesn’t, match the stereotype of what a ‘geek’ is. While anyone’s welcome to listen to this podcast (and we hope you do!) we’ll be prioritizing the voices of women, people of color, people on the LGBTQIAA spectrum, people with disabilities, the neurodivergent community, and our elders.

Episode 3: Violet
In which we talk about Steven Universe, Tumblr, and the steam engine fandom. Contains very few spoilers about any of these things, but a lot of thinking about the infrastructure of fictional worlds and what counts as a fandom, anyway. The Autistic Tony Stark fic is "Don't Say It" by bibliomaniac - you can find it here: http://archiveofourown.org/works/7838281. We also talked about "How the Mouth Changes Its Shape" by breathedout (http://archiveofourown.org/works/704773). If you get excited by The Avengers and/or Sherlock, you should read them both, but the second will take you a lot longer.
