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’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.

Geek Girl Podcast & Blog

Anomaly has been a Parsec Award finalist for three years now and was highlighted by Libsyn Syndication as a “Podcast Luminary”.

From the start, the hosts of Anomaly had but one goal in mind: to have fun while sharing their unique perspectives on Sci-Fi and Fantasy. Created over twelve years ago by  Jen and Angela, Anomaly features in-depth 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 podcast, was originally coined by Jen and Angela. They use the descriptor to set themselves apart–Anomalies are the halfway point between muggle and geek.

“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.”
