X-Files: Jose Chung’s from Outer Space Chat

By |March 17th, 2019|Anomaly, Classic Anomaly, Classic TV, Sci Fi, Show Notes, The X-Files|

SPOILER ALERT!  This previously archived Anomaly transmission was originally released somewhere around 2008. In it, Angela and Jen discuss the comical alien abduction episode from The X-Files: “Jose Chung’s from Outer Space”. I edited this rereleased episode to get to the point faster. Clips from "Jose Chung's from Outer Space" were originally used to illustrate our points, but I cut them out in the rerelease to stay legal and stuff. Sorry. Stick around after the credits for this transmission of Anomaly to hear the first half of [...]

An In-Depth Review of “Skyward” by Brandon Sanderson Part 2, Book 1

By |March 3rd, 2019|Anomaly, Books, Sci Fi, Show Notes|

RED ALERT! Spoilers for "Skyward"! If you are looking for a spoiler-free review, please listen to Part 1 first. "Skyward" is about a young girl named Spensa "Spin" Nightshade. All she's ever wanted was to join the pilots who defend Detritus and prove her father wasn't a coward. Her people have been stranded on the barren world for the past 80 years and suffer constant bombardments from the Krell—an alien species who chased them across the galaxy. This is part two of our two-part review of "Skyward" by [...]

Meet the Anomaly Podcast Hosts

Jen Rhodes
Jen RhodesAnomaly Podcast
In 3rd grade, Jen coaxed the student body into playing “V” during recess. She lead the Visitors as “Diana” until red dust, AKA cherry flavored Kool-Aid mix, ended her reign. Without her leadership, the game ended soon after.

Angela Flournoy
Angela FlournoyAnomaly Podcast
Angela’s first memories include Wrath of Kahn, Return of the Jedi, talking with 4th grade boy scouts about Amazing Stories instead of with girls about whatever 4th grade girls chat about. But she was never a tomboy and thus an Anomaly.

“Simply Awesome! I highly recommend the Anomaly Podcast to anyone of any gender, nationality, creed, etc. Angela and Jen are intelligent and hilarious hosts that give a different kind of insight into the world of science fiction and fantasy”

Geek Girl Podcast & Blog

Anomaly has been a Parsec Award finalist for three years now and was highlighted by Libsyn Syndication as a “Podcast Luminary”.

From the start, the hosts of Anomaly had but one goal in mind: to have fun while sharing their unique perspectives on Sci-Fi and Fantasy. Created over twelve years ago by  Jen and Angela, Anomaly features in-depth commentary and reviews on sci-fi and fantasy books, television, and films. Episode topics also include gaming, cosplay, convention reportsinterviews, and geek culture.

The term “Anomaly”, as it is used by this podcast, was originally coined by Jen and Angela. They use the descriptor to set themselves apart–Anomalies are the halfway point between muggle and geek.

“Anomaly = Awesomeness! Jen and Angela’s Anomaly Podcast ROCKS! Not only are they entertaining, well-versed on all things sci-fi and fantasy, articulate and multifaceted, but they simply crack me up! The quality of the audio and attention to the finer points of editing are Uhura-worthy, and it’s fabulous that they are willing to point out the sometimes less-stellar aspects of what they’re discussing (The Game, anyone?) without dropping into insults or denigration. If you, too, are a geek or love someone who is, tune into The Anomaly Podcast, posthaste.”
