Donate Blog RSS iTunes Stitcher Zune Podcast RSS I'm a pro at cons.  Not to flash my credentials or anything, but I've been attending conventions for over 20 years, I'm a Dragon Con Eternal Member, and I've been to my fair share of World Cons and NYCCs. In the 50th anniversary year of Star Trek and as a member of Saber Guild, my usual con season is even more jam-packed that usual.  From June to October, I've got 6 conventions on my schedule.  Plus, along with some buddies [...]

Donate Blog RSS iTunes Stitcher Zune Podcast RSS Real Talk: I have been on board with the Ghostbusters reboot since it was a twinkle in Paul Feig's eye.  But yeah, there was a little bit of trepidation.  There always is when something you love is rebooted or restarted or re-whatevered years and years later.  But I love Ghostbusters.  And I even like Ghostbusters 2 (because being miserable and treating other people like dirt is every New Yorker's God-given right).  And I love funny women. Settle in, cause it's [...]

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 PodcastAnomaly has been a Parsec Award finalist for two years in a row and was highlighted by Libsyn Syndication as a “Podcast Luminary”.

From the start, the founders of Anomaly had but one goal in mind: to have fun while sharing the hosts’ feminine perspectives on all things geek. Created over ten years ago by  Jen and Angela, Anomaly features 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 geek girl podcast & blog, 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 anyone to tell them how to act or how to geek. And they nerd-it-up over whatever, whenever, and where ever they choose.

This term is reserved for women.  Sorry, men,  you can not have it. You can call yourselves “Anomalies” if you want, but we like the term “Singularities” for dudes like us.  Singularity: the state of being singular, distinct, peculiar, uncommon or unusual. We Anomalies think it sings. Rock on, our a-typical brothers, rock on. You, too, are welcome here.

“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.”
