Anomaly is a geek girl podcast and blog, founded by Jen and Angela in 2007. Their geeky episodes are centered on sci-fi fantasy books, movies, television, and games, ren faires 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.
Anomaly has been nominated, by their listeners, for a Parsec Award for three years in a row. In August of 2015 and in 2016, Anomaly was a finalist under the category of Best Speculative Fan or News Podcast (General).
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.
