About the Hosts

Wendy WoodyProfile Photo

Wendy Woody


Wendy's parents forced her to see Star Wars in the theater when she was 9 years old. And thank goodness they did, because it shaped her into the nerd she is today. Her love of Star Wars led her to filmmaking, where she started by making Star Wars fan films. Turns out, she was pretty good at it, and won the 2004 Lucasfilm Star Wars Fan Film Award at San Diego Comic Con.

Her nerdy journey has also included a deep love for X-Files, Xena: Warrior Princess, and Person of Interest.

Wendy works as a news director at the NBC affiliate in Los Angeles, and has worked in television for over 20 years. She's also a member of the Director's Guild of America (DGA), just like her favorite director, Steven Spielberg!

Tara Chadwick


Tara's queer nerding out began early. While other girls wanted to play with Barbie's, Tara wanted to watch Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. Even then she thought to herself, "do I want to BE the pink power ranger, or be WITH the pink power ranger?" Turns out, a little of both!

Her love for sci-fi, fantasy, and action-adventure films and tv grew over time, until it could only be contained in a queer, nerdy podcast. Whether it's classics like Star Wars, Doctor Who, and Xena, or more recent favorites like Wynonna Earp and Warrior Nun, Tara is here for it.

Tara has worked as a video editor and filmmaker in Los Angeles for over ten years, works at a hospital just like Meredith Grey (have you heard?), and currently lives with her two cats and giant dog/moose, Charley.

Cat Crimins


Cat has been nerding out since she was a kid. She fell in love with genre the first time she watched Star Wars after her brother rented it at the local video store in 1982. Her first fandom experience was with Xena: Warrior Princess. She became fully immersed in the fandom culture, even MC'ing for Lucy Lawless during her run of performances at The Roxy Theatre.

She's moderated panels for the Wynonna Earp fandom and loves talking about all things queer and nerdy. Cat has worked in the film and television industry for over two decades and currently works in TV as a Post Production Producer.
