Geekly Speaking About… Cameras, Cosplayers, and Consent

Geekly Speaking About… “The Commander Shepard Challenge”

If you’ve been listening to our “Geekly Speaking About…” podcasts, you’ve probably heard co-editor Jillian Pullara and me talking about Commander Shepard from the Mass Effect series of games from Bioware.

Comic Non-Sans: Webfiction and Web Serials
