Never give up your fandom! Never surrender shipping! Today we're fanning out over the amazing Galaxy Quest, a gem that just keeps getting better with age. We talk about how it was a roadmap for the kinds of fandom that have since gone from fringe to mainstream. Then we discuss some of the textbook features of toxic fandom and practices fans can engage in to enjoy their art without it becoming harmful. Hopefully we managed to cover everything possible, but I doubt it.
Announcement: Next week we'll be doing another Patron thank you Q and A, so get your Qs together and bring em to patreon, or if you really hate that platform you can email us.

Recent appearances: Nothing recently! We do children's parties, if that helps. Thomas especially, he can bring his own child if you're short. Her experience machine is portable and can network with the other kid's machines.
