With the start of 2023, the Fanbase Press staff and contributors wanted to take a look back at last year's media from our very own geeky perspectives. Much like our readers and fans, one way we view and connect with the world around us is through the stories, characters, and heroes that we enjoy or look up to, and it’s always interesting to hear other’s opinions when it comes to their favorites of the year. After much consideration, below are the moments, stories, creators, and fandoms that we here at Fanbase Press believe were worth highlighting.
As the end of 2022 draws near, we at Fanbase Press want to thank the talented and hard-working individuals who host, edit, and create the various podcasts available as part of the Fanbase Press Podcast Network.

Below, readers will find the Fanbase Press podcast episodes that were most popular with our fans and listeners over the course of 2022.
