https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-znvzu-6cf1f9

Show Notes

Becka (@tainkirrahe) is joined by Erica (@transsoundwave), Umar (@speed_freak01), Stuart (@inflatabledalek) and Dennis (@tformer90) to discuss why gatekeeping occurs in fandom, the concept of ‘casual’ fans, and the approach of curation vs creation in our favourite hobbies.

We cover fandoms such as TransformersStar Trek, Doctor WhoKamen Rider and Sherlock.
