This week on Fangirl Happy Hour, Ana and Renay dig into Tansy Rayner Roberts’s essay from the first issue of Uncanny Magazine, “Does Sex Make Science Fiction Soft?” and explore our experience with sex and romance in our reading pasts. Then, it’s time to discuss The Hugo Awards: the latest debates and drama among the community, as well and some of our nominees for the award. Lastly, we read The Very Best of Kate Elliott, her first short fiction collection, and discuss what we took away from her first of three 2015 literary offerings.
This week on Fangirl Happy Hour, Renay and Ana join up for the first episode. It’s 2015; what media are we looking forward to in the coming year? Then, Serial, the podcast everyone was talking about in 2014. How did we feel coming away from this hugely contentious piece of journalism? Was it only reporting or was it entertainment, too? Lastly, Marvel’s Agent Carter: did it live up to our huge hopes and dreams?
Welcome to Fangirl Happy Hour! We’re launching a new podcast dedicated to fun pop culture and fandom chat tailored to our specific fangirl needs. Renay and Ana will be at the controls and it’s going to be a fun ride. We hope you join us!
