So great to have Preeti and Swapna together!
Excellent discussion of fandoms (books, Star Wars, comics, movies, and Bollywood, not necessarily in that order) by two smart desi ladies. Who are my friends, full disclosure ;) (I love hearing Preeti giggle about nerdy stuff again <3)
Girl Geeks Unite!
I LOVED the Oh, Comics podcast, so it's so great to hear Preeti's voice in my headphones again. As a big Star Wars geek myself, I have mad love for these two ladies and their love for our shared fandom. I've only listened to the first two episodes, but I'm excited to listen to more.. Love what you are doing, keep it up!
Nerds, nerds, nerrddssss!
This is fun and easy-to-listen-to podcast from some very smart nerdy women with the occasional guest. They are sure to open your eyes about some topics, and to make you laugh with others. ENJOY.
