Hosted by Kyah Green and Stephanie Malek, The Fandom Show is a celebration of Fandom. From boy bands to magical girls, Star Wars to star clusters, there is no shortage of things in this world to nerd-out about. The Fandom Show talks to guests about their favourite fandoms; why they love it, how they love it, and all the bizarre little details only a true fan would know. Join us for an hour of pure enthusiasm, where nerds are the coolest kids in town!

ALLEY-OOP! Grab your kicks and hit the court because today we’re joined by writer, puppeteer and basketball podcaster, Freddie Rivas (he/him) to talk about the most elite sport in North America - Basketball! Not a sports fan? Fear not, because we’re getting a beginner friendly crash court in what makes Basketball one of the most beloved sports of all time, from the bombastic trick shots to the grinding defense, the player personalities to the accessibility of courts. We talk about the Raptors championship, why a well made team is like a D&D party (and how the Harlem Globetrotters are definitely bards), the similarities between sports fans and nerds and how basketball team logos feature FAR too many basketballs.
