Episode 106: X-Men Is Her Rushmore

This week, Rhea and Destiny are joined by friend of the show/cartoonist/actress/local improv queen Tracie Mauk! We recorded this on a hotel bed in Kansas City, MO on the 2nd night of Planet Comicon, our bellies full of pizza and trashy vodka drinks. We talk about the good and bad side of cosplay, speculate on why Doctor Who is so dang popular, and the ineffable connection that fans have with fictional worlds and characters, even though consumerism is A Thing.
