Panel Preview: Live Podcasts at GeekGirlCon ’19
Now that we’re all in the throes of organizing our con-weekend itineraries, we’re posting these panel previews to highlight some of the programming we’re most looking forward to. So far we’ve covered sessions about gaming and academic geekery, and here I’ll be gushing about the panels to bookmark if you, like me, spend an almost superhuman amount of time listening to podcasts.
First up, I would like to seriously and desperately implore you to come to the live recording of Feminist Frequency Radio at 3 p.m. on Saturday. This year, Anita Sarkeesian, Ebony Adams, and Carolyn Petit will once again bring us an hour of pure joy in the form of thoughtful, funny, and serious feminist media analysis. Definitely include this session in your schedule and add some of their backlist to your podcast queue in the meantime!
We’ll also be graced with a live recording of the Fansplaining podcast at 10 a.m. on Sunday! The Fansplaining podcast deep dives into everything fandom, and the topic for the live recording is con culture! Swing by to hear hosts Elizabeth and Flourish discuss GeekGirlCon, the con experience in general, and the relationship between underrepresented groups and con culture.
Next, we have the folks behind d20 Dames, your favorite tabletop storytelling podcast. Join the four Dames as they play should an all-ages, one-shot adventure in front of a live audience at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday!
The last live podcast recording I’d like to draw your attention to is Sartorial Geek at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday. Jordan Ellis and Liz Crowder host a podcast about all things geek, and especially for GeekGirlCon, they’ll be discussing LGBTQIA+ themes in books and YA with Mallory Cohen from WhatchYA Reading?
Well, I don’t know about you, but I know for sure how I’ll be spending at least four hours of the weekend. Check here for the full programming schedule, and be sure to grab your passes if you haven’t already!
