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.Read more »
