Wonder Woman, like all women, has been through many incarnations over the past 75 years. In this episode of Anomaly we not only explore the story behind Wonder Woman, but discuss whether she is a proud symbol of feminism or an embarrassing reminder of sexism from a bygone era - or maybe something else entirely. From the Silver Age Wonder Woman to the most recent [...]

Classic Anomaly Video from 2008

By | February 7th, 2017|Anomalous Musings, Anomaly|

I found a few videos on an old hard drive from the early days of Anomaly. I thought I'd share a couple every day this week to celebrate our podcast's 10th anniversary! Here's a video we sent in 2008 to Rico from Treks In Sci-Fi for his 150th episode. Back then we had to export at very small sizes for the archaic iPod devices of old. Enjoy!

“Geek Acceptance! This podcast really helps me accept my inner geek. A great podcast with great hosts.”

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.”
