By | July 21st, 2016|Anomalous Musings, Con Prep, Geek|

Donate Blog RSS iTunes Stitcher Zune Podcast RSS I believe that everyone has a real life superpower.  Mine is packing.  Just like Mary Poppins and her carpet bag, I've done 5 days of Dragon Con - including 3 costumes and several pairs of shoes - with just a carry on.  I know what's up. So, here's the thing: This isn't going to be a packing list.  There are plenty of those (this one is particularly comprehensive) all over the internet.  And chances are that you know the basics [...]

Convention Prep 101 | The Con Bag

By | July 20th, 2016|Anomalous Musings, Con Prep, Tutorials|

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 [...]

Ghostbusters 2016 | I Ain’t Afraid of No Trolls

By | July 13th, 2016|Anomalous Musings, Comedy, Geek, Movie Reviews, Sci Fi|

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 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.

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 themselves to be pigeonholed. Anomalies are unique. They are capable women with diverse backgrounds and hobbies. They, as Anomalies, are socially functional fan girls who like their TNG with a side of Project Runway or whatever else is considered “normal”.

This term is reserved for women.  Sorry, men,  you can not have it. You are “Singularities.”  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.
