Listen to 2 Girls 1 Podcast if you love weird internet culture and communities

2 GIRLS 1 PODCAST is all about the amazing and often strange communities made possible by internet magic.

Allison Goldberg and Jennifer Jamula are two actors who have been performing bizarre internet text (Craigslist posts, Reddit threads, Tumblr memes) live on stage, word for word, with hilarious results.

Now they’re going deeper to learn about where fringe online culture comes from, and one theme is clear. People thought they were weird for obsessing about something—Sonic the Hedgehog fan fiction, online sweepstakes, Game of Thrones languages, My Little Pony, Esperanto, or sex robots–only to learn there are thousands just like them on forums, subreddits, Twitter, and Twitch.

Join Alli and Jen for hilarious and humanizing conversations about the power of online community, viral phenomena, and the caution required as we bounce between IRL and digital worlds in the modern age.
