This is what I'll be doing Thursday evening! Come listen!  
For about two months I've been hosting weekly radio shows at the Internet site Blogtalkradio.com. The overall theme of the show is general femslash discussion, since it's something I know pretty well and no one else seems to fill this niche on that site. I've been tackling individual fandoms I'm familiar with, but lately I've been trying to expand into the broader femslash world, and next week will be no exception.

Episode Eight will air LIVE on Thursday, July 23rd, in a special hourlong episode from 10-11 PM EST.


DiNovia, Fewthistle and DAx Shine a "Guiding Light" on Otalia

As "Guiding Light" approaches the end of its run, after over seventy years of broadcasting, the Internet fanbase is more energetic than ever, mounting its last-ditch efforts to save the venerable soap opera. Plus, of course, there's "Otalia". The canon lesbian romance between Olivia Spencer and Natalia Rivera developed slowly over the past year and captured the hearts of fans. And now it's expanded well beyond the show's core audience as brand-new fans watch show clips on Youtube, listen to the Big Purple Dreams podcasts, and read fan fiction at the Incandescent Fire website. We'll discuss the exploding popularity of Otalia in a special hourlong show with DiNovia, author of "Hide Beside Me", her fellow fanfic author and co-creator of the Burning City fanfic Livejournal community Fewthistle, and "The Courtship of Emma's Mother" writer DAx.

Anyone wondering what kind of show to expect can go to http://www.blogtalkradio.com/allaine and download any previous episode. The most relevant episodes Five-Seven, which are all interview shows. And anyone who cannot listen live will be able to download it beginning July 24th.

I'm extremely excited to be doing this show. All three authors were incredibly gracious in agreeing to make time in their schedules, and while I'm extremely new to GL - my only experience in soaps was watching All My Children throughout the 1990s (I lived through Bianca, Otalia fans, I feel your pain) - I've already grown to like the couple very much and the fanfic very much as well.

I hope you will attend.

Sincerely, Allaine
