Femsplained is back, with a lot to discuss, a lot of new updates, and a few backlogged episodes from the days before COVID - 19. This episode however, is freshly recorded and about our reflections of the phenomenon that was the latest Animal Crossing release. Check out our website and let us know what you think!
In the second episode in our Whedon Wars series, Avalon is up to bat for Buffy the Vampire Slayer being Joss' best work. Although her vote may not be as controversial as Diana's vote for Dollhouse, she still has to weave through some of the shows problematic - and confusing - points. Don't worry, we still play a way too long game of FMK at the end, and spend roughly the first 30 minutes discussing our eyebrows. Don't miss this episode, and watch out for the official Whedon Wars polls to cast your vote!
This is the first episode in our Whedon Wars/Joss Madness series where Avalon and I will pit our favorite Joss Whedon Creations up against each other for YOU to vote on! This one is in favor of Dollhouse, which Diana bravely swears is Joss' best work. This episode is spoiler heavy! Listen and tell us what you think of Joss Whedon's Dollhouse!
This week Avalon takes a turn Femsplaining her relationship to the Power Puff Girls series. Diana somehow made it 32 years without seeing a single episode of this show so this is a real learning experience. Also featured in this episode are: Queer Icons, Diana's new business endeavor, Avalon's relationship to a Web 2k message board, and the perils of High School social order.
Avalon is DONE with school and Diana is done Convention planning, so Femsplained is back to a more regular schedule! The return is one of Diana's favorite childhood topics - the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise from the 1990's! There's talk of the old, talk of the new, and talk of the not-to-be-mentioned movie, as well as some colorful biological discussion, the merits of socialism, and a game of Spoon/Fork/Knife inspired by Ginny Di!
We're finally back, with Avalon femsplaining Season 8, Episode 1 of Game of Thrones and NOTHING ELSE.
We talk about the nerd culture vacuum, Gilmore Girls, and when incest is or is not okay. But mostly we play FMK with all your favorite GoT characters! Also, check out our new friends over at World Stealers!
Femsplained has been a podcast for one whole calendar year!!! We are celebrating our anniversary with a little metapodcasting, a podcast about podcasts if you will. This is truly our silliest episode, and though there is a topic...really this episode is just us Jizzing our Jeans about everything we love, including this podcast.
Critical Role, Sailor Moon, Outlaw Star, The death of the Homework Episodes, Encounter Roleplay, #TwitchGoals, the DAMSELS OF DORKINGTON, a special interlude from Francis' Trivia Night...
And at the end of this marathoncast, the whole family unites including Francis for a special tipsy goof-off which features:
2000's emo rock band drama, hating Long Island, Loving Splish Splash, and as always, a good game of Fuck, Marry, Kill.
In the 30th episode of Femsplained, Avalon goes off about the first two Harry Potter books and the obsession she holds for the series. But if you were worried for even a second that this podcast stayed on track, calm down. We also talk about world famous Furry, C.S. Lewis, bad haircuts, Avalon's guilt over Hufflepuuff-gate, and whether or not 25% of the world's population of children are truly evil.
The latest episode is a mutual fandom nerd-out that's full of as many tangents as there are new generations of Pokemon! And while the main focus of the episode is of course about the series, game, and card collectible we all know and love, you will also be blessed by the following:
A reluctant argument over the pronunciation of GIF
Diana's loathing for Magic the Gathering
Sonic the Hedgehog
Avalon learning about the dark tale of 2-Gether, and other nostalgic boy band talk
And of course, would it be an episode of Femsplained if there was no dark conversation about who is or isn't bonable? Not even the Pokemon universe is safe.
You've probably never considered that somewhere out there, an adult human being could ramble on excitedly about Peter Pan for hours on end. Well, it would shock you how much of this episode had to be trimmed down, because Diana is precisely that adult human being. But don't worry! We also talk about other, more interesting topics to help you get through this episode! Like Horoscopes, The Craft, Jumanji, Hogwarts Houses, and Avalon's namesake! But mostly, this is the deep dive you never asked for, with love from Diana to JM Barrie.
