A Court of Fandoms and Exploration - A Podcast.

Your weekly deep dive into the YA literature and fandoms that we love.

About the show

Hello there! We are your hosts, Laura Marie and Jessica Marie and this is A Court of Fandoms and Exploration: A Podcast

Where we will discuss the epic highs and lows of YA literature, fantasy/sci- fi, and the tv shows (old and new) that made us the slightly- damaged young millennials we are today. Experience the life-altering realizations and unresolved trauma that only YA and sci-fi/fantasy can soothe as we explore Prythian, Crescent City, Sunnydale, Elfhame and more.
