515 Alpha Beta Omega


This week, we catch up with some recent fannish news and give an intensely spoilery review of the BBC Sherlock Christmas special — or what NYC HQ can remember of it, anyway. And then we get knotty with special guest Nora Bombay to talk about Alpha/Beta/Omega, that trope that you hadn't heard of before, but seems to be everywhere now. We discuss where we think it comes from, why it seems to have sparked such interest, and share a few recs along the way, too.

514 The X-Files



We put the I, and Eff Bee Ihhh---ncoherant wailing, because this is our episode about one of the seminal shows of recent memory and modern fandom: The X-Files. Hoyden and Xenakis join Pru to talk about Mulder, Scully, how they found the series, what might have made it such a phenomenon, and how we feel about the upcoming six-episode miniseries. Chaneen also drops by for a non-spoilery quick chat about the first of the new episodes. We talk conspiracy, romance, shipping, the relative uselessness of Fox Mulder through the lens of an adult female viewpoint, and whether Skinner is getting hotter with time. (Yes.) Strap in, and for God's sake -- don't drop your service weapon.

513 Cooking Shows



How many times can you say the word lovely in an hour and a half? We test that out this week as we delve into our favourite (or favorite) cooking competition shows. Tune in for Great British Bake Off spoilers, Masterchef Australia, Masterchef Junior, Masterchef, Top Chef, Barefoot Contessa, Paula Deen, and more. And then we get de-railed by One Direction and take a detour into fandom meta, because of course we did. Come on, listen to us wax poetic. Bring a snack.

Grab the episode here. And we're not joking - get a snack. Just not fruitcake.

We talk the two arcs of S3, we talk the passionately bonkers Hannibal fandom, and we talk where we think those two crazy kids ended up...after ending up at the bottom of a cliff.

511 Time Travel Ask Us Anything side B




It's Canadian Thanksgiving, so guys, please don't listen to this in front of your family, or the police, or, idk, small children. This week we talk Neon Genesis Evangelion, the fact that everyone and their mom is in the Tom Hardy/Taron Eggerton movie, fandom and journalism, why the government of Canada should support this podcast, why Canadian lit is terrible, and how neither of us was sober. Oops.

There was a link we were supposed to include here from an ask. We lost it! If you sent that to us, send it again and we'll post the link here. Thanks!

502 Korean Dramas





Is your life lacking in hysterical sobbing and 24-hour binge watching of television in a language you don't understand? Have you always craved an excuse to watch a genre of television that will destroy you so completely that watching someone robotically hug another person from behind is enough to break you into shattering tears? Do you need plotlines that include time traveling aliens and wealthy sons of industry who stand around bleakly with their hands in their pockets all the time? Do you like watching people get hella drunk in tents and then throw up around children's playgrounds? Then Korean dramas are a thing that you need in your life, and for the first time since S1 of /report, Pru and Waldorph are here to deliver.

Thrusters on full, /reporters, because Leupagus and Ayalesca join Pru and MK this week to talk about Star Trek: Into Darkness. We discuss our weird relationship with this movie (did we like it? I think we did? are we sure? who fucking knows), "casting issues," "plot issues" and other sundries. Stick around, and we can all be confused together.

315 Hannibal



Dinner's up, /reporters. This week, Pru is joined by Leupagus, Judgebunny, and Sam H. of Hey Don't Judge Me.com's brilliant Hannibal recaps to talk about our favorite dapper-as-fuck cannibal serial killer in his latest incarnation on NBC's Hannibal. We talk about the darkness of the fandom versus the sparkles of the fandom, whether or not thunderdome-ing a potential buddy is a good way to weed out the weak from your list of potential friends, and how everything -- everything -- is people.

Go on, then, dinner's ready. Grab the episode! It's totally not people. We swear.

306 Hockey RPF



Strap on your skates, assholes. This week we're doing it Kate Beaton style and getting all fucked up on Hockey. Whether you're not sure why Hockey RPF suddenly exploded as a major fandom and want to experience the joy and agony of #sports or you're already with us, this episode is like the steroids we're sure no professional athlete would ever take. Pru abandons MK with Merelyn, Twentysomething, and the Hoyden to talk lockout, why some pairings are bigger than others, and just how seriously Canada takes their national winter sport.

It's /report's one year anniversary podcast…where we stay true to form and blabber about everything and anything and reminisce about how the hell this podcast got started, the first night Pru had MK in her clutches, and how we had to level up in professionalism because we got booted from our hosting.
