Your Biggest Fangirl Podcast
About This Show
Our podcast seeks to be the best vehicle to explore fan culture and fandom in depth and intellectually from the unique perspective of the fans themselves. We strive to offer knowledgeable viewpoints from two fangirls who not only are active in fandom, but possess “behind the scenes” experiences and access to the artists they so admire. We will create meaningful, entertaining dialogues with other fans, creators, and scholars, celebrating what it means to be a fan, and specifically a female fan.

Episode 09: Representation in Fandom with actress Alex Taylor
5 days ago
Alex Taylor is a New York-based actor and fan of musicals, Star Wars, Harry Potter and Marvel. An old friend of Victoria’s, Alex adds some much-needed discussion of representation of race and queer identities on film on the Your Biggest Fangirl Podcast -- pointing to how the only Disney princess that would represent her was Tiana, when she was an adult, no less! We look at Black Panther and the importance of the film being an unapologetically black film, particularly an African one. Alex also discusses other fandoms including RPG video games that integrate non-heteronormative relationships.
(This episode was recorded before the release of the film, so there are no spoilers of Black Panther beyond the first trailer! )
