Our goal on Mastodon is simple:

We want to help build, contribute to, and support members of a vibrant and inclusive community of geeks, nerds, artists, writers, fans, and everything between.

That's our mission as a podcast. That's our mission everywhere.

We always have and always will support a woman's right to choose.

If you are able to, please donate to Planned Parenthood or another org supporting reproductive rights.

This applies to us, too, though our social media ninja may post some things :). Anywhoodles.
