Anomaly Supplemental is a true testament to the power of the internet. Only Kasey actually knew Jen and Angela before the genesis of the Anomaly community. She and Sue, a podcast listener, were asked to contribute to the Anomalous Musings blog beginning in August of 2009. As the community continued to grow, Anne, another listener, joined the blog staff and Sarah took on the roll of Anomalous Correspondent in September 2010. Of these four women, only Anne and Sue have been in the same room together, and only once (so far) after both joining the staff.
Honored that Jen and Angela would share their creation, these ladies work to spread the word about Anomaly and expand the community, and heard that fans of the podcast wanted more. But, as Jen says, “podcasting is hard work.” An idea started forming to bring podcast subscribers more Anomaly without adding to the workload for the hosts.
Eventually, the idea took shape as Anomaly Supplemental – a monthly podcast in the Anomaly feed (and on a staggered release schedule), always approximately half-an-hour long. Episodes may be hosted by any permutation of the Anomaly staff, from a solo show to a 6 (or more) person round-table, and focus on topics that may not be covered by the mother podcast.
