This week we're joined by therapist and author, Kathleen Smith, whose book The Fangirl Life is now available. We unpack the book and look at how fangirled can lead their most constructive life while also enjoying all there is to enjoy from our favorite shows and ships. We also find time to chat about the Looking movie, new Gilmore news, and updates from San Diego Comic Con!
This week we welcome Carina Mackenzie, executive story editor on The CW's The Originals, to chat about the toxic nature of shipping on the Internet. We look at the beauty of fandom and all the good that's come from having an online community to feel our feelings with -- and then discuss the dark side that's come along with it. We'd love to hear you weigh in! Be sure to find us on twitter or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is a very exciting week as we celebrate one year of the Shipping Room! In honor of this momentous occasion, we are doing another listener mailbag! We answer questions, play some middle school games, and give out 'ship superlatives. Also, to mark this milestone we've got some super fun news to mark to share! As always, be sure to find us on twitter or on our website to share your thoughts about all topics discussed!
We've always made a distinction on our show between the aspirational, angsty, will-they-won't-they 'ships and the stable, successful "relationship goals" 'ships. This week we're celebrating the couples we deem to be #relationshipgoals (and reject some suggestions from the internet). Who are some of your faves? Be sure to let us know! Find us on twitter, leave a comment on our website, or send us an email!
We started our Aaron Sorkin coverage a few weeks ago talking about The West Wing with the ladies of the Wingin' It West Wing Podcast. This week, we welcome Kevin Porter of The Gilmore Guys to look at the rest of Aaron Sorkin's TV legacy, namely Sports Night and The Newsroom. How did you feel about Dana and Casey? Jeremy and Natalie? Don and Sloan? We discuss! Be sure to share your thoughts with us @shippingroompod on twitter or email us at email@example.com!
