Tara: Tell us a little bit about that podcast that you do.
Jonathon: Well we do a couple podcasts, right?
Alex: That’s true.
Jonathon: We have a chatty show, “The FlashCast.”
Jonathon: Which is just…
Jonathon: Interesting news and things going on with us and our friends. It’s sort of a strange extended family of friends that we’ve gained through doing the podcast. So they come on and they do little bits.
Alex: Just mail and stuff, yes.
Jonathon: And then the main show “Flash Pulp” is uh, it’s, it’s pulpy stories but told through a modern lens, because there’s a lot of… unfortunate racism, sexism, like the old pulp stories are full of unfortunates.
Jessica: We meet for conventions, and we were in Baltimore and a dozen people from all around the States came, and we spent the weekend together. And uh, we’ve, um, a core group of us are actually in Niagara Falls right now, u, from North Carolina, and we just spent the day with them yesterday. The kids, and their kids, so we’re just bonding with people all over!
Alex: Yeah, we’ve had some of them come stay on our couch, you know, just when they want to come visit head quarters.
Tara: Oh fantastic! That’s great! So um, your um, your podcasts help you create a community. And not necessarily a local community, but a community that extends outside.
Jessica: And it’s yeah, it’s helped the children as well. Like SS, when she was a boy who liked pink, when that was what we thought that she was, a lot of them took pictures of themselves or their groups of friends. A guy, he does um, improv and he got everybody um, at the company to put on pink, and take these pictures for SS. So they have been real, real help for her.
Jonathon: And then we have the pink book which is a project that JeS headed up actually. Um, she got all these pictures, and she printed them out, and then put them all together so that SS, before she was SS, when she was W, and kind of, you know, trying to fight through liking to wear pink, and everything, she could, he could flip through the book and…
Alex: Remember all these people that were behind him.
Stella: I can grab that book if you like.
