As a special feature of The Fanbase Weekly podcast, the Fanbase Feature focuses on and celebrates a specific element of geek culture.
In this 12-episode Fanbase Feature mini-series, Through the Ring – A Focus on The Expanse TV Series will provide an in-depth analysis of the hit sci-fi television series created by Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby (and based on James S.A. Corey’s novels of the same name). Hosted by the POPSKL Podcasters, their analysis will not only explore the themes of The Expanse, but also the overall impact that sci-fi stories can impart on their audiences.
POPSKL (Pissed-Off Psychic Scary Kids of LA) returns to The Fanbase Weekly following the success of their first endeavor, Dream Journal – A Focus on Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman!
In this special episode, POPSKL chats with Eisner-nominated writer Corinna Bechko about the four-part The Expanse comic book series from BOOM! Studios which takes place between the fourth and fifth seasons of the television series. Bechko discusses how much freedom she had to create, how she captured the voices of the characters, and how she went about exploring two female leads in a new and fresh way.
Brew up some coffee, heat up some lasagna, and geek out with POPSKL — as they bring you big conversations for big stories.

This month’s sponsor: This episode of The Fanbase Weekly Podcast is sponsored by the comic book series, Boots and Pup. Have you ever wondered if there is life outside of this planet? Well, I’ve got good news and bad news… there is life, but it’s pretty dumb. Boots and Pup is a webcomic about life on another planet… a planet populated by jerks. Two specifically: Boots, a high-strung worry-wort, and Pup, a care-free vagabond. Together, they engage in funny banter, odd-ball adventures, and reflect on pop culture, office jobs, and what it takes to get each other’s goat. Check them out at bootsandpup.com or follow them on social media (@bootsandpup) for new webcomics updated weekly. Your IQ will definitely suffer.
