About the show

Radio Free Fandom is a fortnightly podcast in which host Claire Rousseau and her guests get down & nerdy about the media and stories that they love.

Radio Free Fandom logoThe show aims to celebrate all of the many, varied, weird & wonderful things we love, and all of the many, varied, weird & wonderful ways in which we express our nerdy, fannish obsessions – from intricate narrative analysis to squeeing about fanfiction to intricate narrative analysis about fanfiction that makes us squee!

We believe in loving media critically & over-analysing the crap out of all the things; we also firmly hold that there is no such thing as a ‘true fan’ or a ‘fake fan’.

Fair warning, this podcast will contain swears and OPINIONS.
