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, Anomaly 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 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. 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.

Latest Anomaly Episodes

The Hosts’ Picks: Kasey’s Top 5 Anomaly Episodes

Like Sue, Kasey  had trouble choosing her favorite five Anomaly episodes. There are some overlaps between their lists, but Kasey says she doesn't care. She's is too  pleased with them. That probably means these episodes are worth a listen/relisten. Again, I asked our hosts to choose a show that they were in. I thought it might help narrow things down a bit. Kasey has chosen four Anomaly Supplemental episodes and one Anomaly episode. A link to the episode and the show notes will be included in each of our lists. I'll [...]

The Hosts’ Picks: Sue’s Top 5 Anomaly Episodes

When I asked our co-hosts to choose their favorite five episodes, Sue was the first to reply; not only with the name of the episodes, but with a link to the show notes, too! She said if she didn't pick five right away, and stick with them, she would never be able to make a decision. I completely understand. I, too, have found it difficult to choose five. Not because I think we're "the bomb" and every episode is gold—far from it. It's because each Anomaly podcast episode is something Angela [...]

Top Ten Anomaly Episodes

We have been producing Anomaly episodes for seven years, but it wasn't until recently that we were able to review our stats to see which episodes resonated the most with our audience. That transition occurred two years ago when we switched to Libsyn. Now we know where our listeners are from (country, region and city), and how many times they download or streaming each episode. Don't worry, we don't know anything more than that. You can take the aluminum foil hat off your head ;) We wanted to share our top [...]

Anomaly of Star Trek Into Darkness

In this edition of our show, Jen, Angela, her husband Jim and Kasey from Anomaly Supplemental review Star Trek: Into Darkness. The beginning of the episode is a non-spoiler review, while the second half is SUPER spoileriffic. If you haven't seen the movie, hit "stop" as soon as you hear the official Anomaly spoiler alert music. This review includes a Star Trek parody song by Rick Moyer as well as a comment from him and Simon Meddings of Waffle On and The Martians Are Here. Thank you guys for sending [...]
