In the Multifandom of Madness
Come for the chaos, stay for the post credit scene! In our Season 2 finale we bring you any and every other fandom that we are a part of -- from The Lego Movies to Bachelor in Paradise to Downton Abbey to more Tony Leung. With everything culminating in random but deep questions about Eastern vs. Western media. We hope you've enjoyed listening to this season as much as we've enjoyed making it. See you next season!

Fan or Fiction
Theresa and Livia both write yet neither have touched the ultimate form of fandom: fan-fiction. This episode The Pandas explore the depths of fan-fiction as they discuss the enigma that is "My Immortal". Disclaimer: This is a topic that both of us are not familiar with. We thought it would be a good learning experience for us to discuss under the "fandom" umbrella. We respect all fan-fiction writers and recognise the talent and dedication it takes to produce incredible work.  Music by Abigail Gunarso Logo by Catharina Avelia
