Episode Notes

This one goes out to our nerdy thirst-buckets — because we went to New York Comic Con again! Shoutout to Cher and Preeti AKA the very generous cohosts of the SyFy Fangrrls Strong Female Characters podcast, because they invited us to be part of a live show discussing all things thirst and fandom. We have a short clip from the live show in today’s episode but you can listen to the whole hilarious thing on their feed (@syfyfangrrlspod). Also: remember how Bim loves Rick and Michonne on The Walking Dead? Well, we have a brief but wondrous conversation with Richonne fanfic writer extraordinaire, Cake By The Pound, and Kia of the excellent podcast Two Dead Chicks, to discuss the secret of Rick’s, um, walk. ::eyes emoji:: Finally, some truly blessed listener correspondence that made us tear up and blow kisses.

Stay hydrated, lovely ones!

About the Show

At a time when men are Not Doing Great, Bim and Nichole want to keep asking questions about Hollywood inclusion and opportunity, through illuminating and hilarious conversations with special guests, original fan fic designed to make you sit up, and of course [REDACTED]. Bring a straw… and come thirst with us.
