how tumblr is changing fandom culture (and what we can maybe do about it) by jes - Listen on SoundCloud
cross-posted to my fandom blog too, but I know some of y'all are in fandoms too or just have thoughts/feelings about Tumblr so I thought I’d put it here too. I’m gearing up to maybe do a real podcast project, or a miniseries type thing maybe, but I’m still learning about the genre (and trying to rope some friends in to engage with me!!). anyway if you’re interested or have reactions let me know.
I’ve been feeling pretty down about tumblr lately and today I had a bunch of really good conversations with people about what parts of tumblr fandom feel broken. soooo I made another little mini-podcast recording thing where I try to work through some of the ways I see fandom changing and why it feels so much less healthy/sustainable than fandom has felt in the past (for me. idk if for you! you can tell me). also, in the interests of not just wallowing in bad feelings, I’m trying to think about what a better fandom culture would look like and how I can start trying to create it for myself (and maybe others too? JOIN MEEEE).
