The Freaky Fandoms podcast was started in January of 2017 when co-hosts Andrew Hawkins and Dani Ryan just decided to stop admiring their friends' shows and make their own. Our goal has been to explore freaky fandoms, whether the content that inspires said fandoms is freaky, or the fans themselves take things into that category. The show releases every Sunday and can feature anything: movies, television, video games, real life events, music... the limits are endless.
