515 Alpha, Beta, Omega

This week, we catch up with some recent fannish news and give an intensely spoilery review of the BBC Sherlock Christmas special — or what NYC HQ can remember of it, anyway. And then we get knotty with special guest Nora Bombay to talk about Alpha/Beta/Omega, that trope that you hadn’t heard of before, but seems to be everywhere now. We discuss where we think it comes from, why it seems to have sparked such interest, and share a few recs along the way, too.

How creepy can we be about a cannibalistic serial killer and fetishizing his gorgeous dinners before the NSA comes after us? Find out, by tuning into our post Season 3 conversation with Raz and Kit. We talk the two arcs of S3, we talk the passionately bonkers Hannibal fandom, and we talk where we think those two crazy kids ended up…after ending up at the bottom of a cliff.

Break out your widows weeds and best funerary hankies, /reporters, because this week we’re exploring the wide and wonderful world of character death. Pru and MK are joined by Death Moon Merelyn and Black Snowflake Waldorph to discuss when character deaths work, when they don’t, and which ones have been the most affecting in their tear-stained memories. Listeners beware, this episode contains extensive spoilers for The Good Wife, Hannibal, and Person of Interest among other fandoms.

Dinner’s up, /reporters. This week, Pru is joined by Leupagus, Judgebunny, and Sam H. of Hey Don’t Judge Me.com‘s brilliant Hannibal recaps to talk about our favorite dapper-as-fuck cannibal serial killer in his latest incarnation on NBC’s Hannibal. We talk about the darkness of the fandom versus the sparkles of the fandom, whether or not thunderdome-ing a potential buddy is a good way to weed out the weak from your list of potential friends, and how everything — everything — is people.
