Signal Boost

Signal Boost is our series of podcasts highlighting (generally underrepresented) SFF and SFF adjacent topics, works and creators that we think you should pay attention to! Each episode is approximately a half hour in length and includes two formats: 1) Short interviews with creators and 2) a conversation between Skiffy and Fanty hosts about topical issues.

If you’d like to suggest something that you think our listeners should pay attention to, feel free to send us an email (skiffyandfanty[at]gmail[dot]com), leave a comment anywhere on this site, or send a message to our Twitter account.  We will do our best to include your suggestions in future episodes.
