The Anomaly Podcast, with Jen and Angela

Anomaly PodcastAnomaly is a geek girl podcast and blog, founded by Jen and Angela in 2007. The show is often featured in the What’s Hot section, under TV and Film within the iTunes Store, and has been deemed a Podcast Luminary by Libsyn.com. The hosts are described by listeners as “smart”, “funny”, “informative” and “addictive”. Their geeky episodes are centered on sci fi fantasy books, movies, television and games, as well as interviews, cosplay tips and conventions reports.  Jen and Angela have always had two goals in mind for their show; to have fun and to offer their feminine perspective on all things geek. Basically, Anomlay helps geeks break the stereotypes that unfairly pigeonhole them, so they can “geek the way they want to geek” and free themselves from the dark arts of boredom.

Award Winning

Anomaly Podcast

Anomaly has been nominated, by their listeners, for a Parsec Award for three years in a row. In August of 2015, Jen and Angela were informed that their podcast was a finalist under the category of: Best Speculative Fan or News Podcast (General). Parsec Award winners were announced at Dragon con in September of the same year. Though they didn’t win in the end, being a finalist amongst so many nominated shows is a great honor.

Awards include: Rookie of the year and Best Panel of Show Hosts in 2009 and Best Panel of Show Hosts in 2010 from Star Wars Fanworks; a network in which Anomaly once was a member.

Anomaly: Something that deviates from what is standard, normal, or expected; an oddity, peculiarity, irregularity, inconsistency, incongruity, a rarity.

The term “Anomaly”, as it is used in this community, was originally coined by Jen and Angela. They use the descriptor to set themselves apart from the stereotypes that are  typically associated with geeks. Anomalies are women who do not allow themselves to “pigeonholed”. They break all stereotypes and geek the way they want to geek.

This term is reserved for women.  Sorry, men,  you can not have it. But one of your brethren, a fellow Anomaly listener, proposed that you call yourselves “Singularities.”  Singularity: the state of being singular, distinct, peculiar, uncommon or unusual. We Anomalies think it sings. Rock on, our atypical brothers, rock on. You, too, are welcome here. In fact, one of our staff members is a Singularity. Noah writes for our blog and joins us on trips to Austin Comic Con. He adds another dimension to our substance here at Anomaly. Be sure to check out all his articles too.

Donate iTunes Stitcher Zune Podcast RSS Blog RSS Wizard World Comic Con Austin: The Adventure is Always Worth It This episode of Anomaly is a vidcast featuring commentary, photos, and video of our trip to Wizard World Comic Con Austin. Due to foul weather, our trek to the convention was a treacherous one: flooding, tornadoes, and gobs of stress. I don't think it's exaggerating to say this trip was almost as epic/harrowing as The Fellowship's adventures in The Lord of the Rings. Like The Fellowship, our band of heroes traveled separately (or in small groups) to Austin, intent [...]

I (Angela) was joined by Rico and Sith Jen at his lovely panel. The awesome thing about Jason Isaacs is that he is a bit of a nerd himself, and has a good humor about the kind of celebrity that comes with being such a singular kind of role in a movie as huge as the Harry Potter franchise.
