Crossover Appeal is a bi-weekly podcast about media, fandom, and who you’d ship. Hosts Annie Cardi & Walt McGough take two popular pieces of culture, analyze their thematic relationships, and then figure out how to mash 'em up together. Basically, it's like tumblr for your ears.

First Episode was great!
This 45 minute podcast came out just as I had a 45 minute car ride today! Serendipity! I don’t know anything about Gilmore Girls or BSG, but even without seeing an episode, I thoroughly enjoyed it! Two thumbs up!
Brilliant Pop Culture Criticism
The creativity and intelligence with which the hosts approach their content and the creativity they exercise in mashing their subjects together is a delight. Highly recommended.
Podcasting at its finest!
Best words to describe this podcast? Unique and entertaining. The hosts are intelligent, well-spoken, and nerdy in the best kind of way. Anyone who likes fandom, crossovers, fanfic, or just a quality podcast should definitely listen! My only regret is that I’ll never have enough hours to investigate all the fandoms they discuss! It’s a good problem to have.
