Feminist Poltergeist Underway!

feminist-poltergeist-logo.png

Hello folks! While the site is now up the podcast it still underway. We've got our incorporeal hands and brains working away at podcasts episodes, finding semi-vacant rooms for the particularly unruly ghosties among us, and are going full blast into research, research, research!!!! Our friendly neighborhood feminist poltergeist, Ellen @butnotdegeneres, has been seen haunting in a couple of local libraries and several cafes so we are hopeful that they are in the midst (not mist, our little joke) of the recording and editing process. We're looking forward to foraying into feminism and fandom with you.
