The Fandom Show is a crash course in popular culture hosted by Kyah Green and Stephanie Malek. From prestige TV to RPGs, space races to drag races, collecting sneakers to catching pokemon, there is no shortage of things in this world to get excited about. The Fandom Show talks to fans, hobbyists and professionals about their fandoms; why they love it, how they love it, and all the bizarre little details only a true fan would know. Strap in for an hour of unadulterated joy and insightful conversation about what it means to be a fan.

This week we’re talking to comedian and collector, Yaw Attuah (he/him) about the wearable artform (that some collectors don’t wear); Sneakers! We learn about the sneaker basics like silhouettes and colourways, the major manufacturers and designers, and the difference between a ‘sneakerhead’ and a ‘hypebeast’. We get into the nostalgia that drives sneaker culture, the massive microeconomy behind flipping kicks, how many shoes does the ‘average’ sneakerhead have, and what it means to search for your ‘Grail’. Plus some insight into what it means to wear Yeezys and whether you can enjoy the shoe without supporting his views.
