Welcome to our new website!

Meet the Hybrids

Fandom: the state or condition of being a fan of someone or something; the fans of a particular person, team, fictional series, etc. regarded collectively as a community or subculture.
 
Hybrid: a thing made by combining two different elements {a mixture); of mixed character; composed of mixed parts.
 
The Fandom Hybrid Podcast launched at the end of September 2020 and was born out of a love for talking about all things fandom. As a lifelong fangirl, I relish in any opportunity I am given to express my love (and sometimes hate) for TV shows, movies and books, mainly in the science fiction, fantasy, and supernatural genres. 
 
In choosing a team, I knew I wanted to be joined by friends who could meet my gift of gab and love of fandom. Michael and I have been friends since high school and he is definitely my brother-in-geek. Anthony and I have been friends since 2004, and he is actually the person responsible for my entre' into the podcasting world (by introducing me to Cat, the creator and hostess of the Sci-Fi Party Line Podcast). Lorrie and I have known each other for over 10 years; I was introduced to her through another mutual podcasting friend, Darrell of the Taylor Network of Podcasts. Kacey and I met each other about five years ago as small business vendors and found that we had a common love for all things The Walking Dead. If you can't tell, we have a lot of fun discussions about geek and pop culture, and fandom in general.
 
We hope that when you listen to our show, you are reminded of your own friendships and fun conversations about the things you love.

About the Hosts

Creator and Host

- The Fandom Hybrid Podcast launched at the end of September 2020 and was born out of a love for talking about all things fandom. As a lifelong fangirl, I relish in any opportunity I am given to express my love (and sometimes dislike) for TV shows, movies and books, mainly in the science fiction, fantasy, and supernatural genres. As such, I have had the opportunity to write/blog for a number of different online outlets over the past few years. I am a former Examiner, having contributed to the Sci-Fi TV and Movies in Atlanta and Atlanta Geek Culture blogs (2011-2014); I was also the “Harry Potter Blogger” for Hollywood News (2010-2011). I have served as a panelist at Dragon Con for the past 10 years, and I have been podcasting for the last 13 years.

Harry Potter has been my primary fandom since I was introduced to it in 2005; my other current interests include - but are not limited to - both the MCU and DCEU (films and TV shows), The Walking Dead, Umbrella Academy, The Boys, Stranger Things, Outlander, Legacies, A Discovery of Witches, and Shadow and Bone (book and Netflix show).

Past Favorites: Supernatural, Stargate SG-1, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Dark Angel, The Tudors, Caprica, 24, V: The Series, Camelot, Dracula, True Blood, Being Human (US), The Vampire Diaries, The Originals, Sleepy Hollow (pre-Season 4), Game of Thrones, Arrow, Into the Badlands, Orphan Black, Salem, and American Gods.

Favorite novel: The Stand by Stephen King.

Michael

My fandom started with Star Wars, Six Million Dollar Man, and James Bond (yes, as an 8 year old I idolized Roger Moore. So what?) As I got older, I got into more stuff (Sesame Street, Scooby-Doo, Justice League, G- Force: Guardians of Space, Tom & Jerry, Woody Woodpecker, and Looney Tunes). These days, my fandom had expanded into works other than cartoons (Castle, Brooklyn Nine-9, Marvel Cinematic Universe, Leverage, etc.), but I still watch cartoons and I'm still into Sci-Fi/ Fantasy as well. I am always looking for something new to obsess over, so drop me a suggestion!

Lorrie

Lorrie - My name is Lorrie and I am nerd, I like Star Wars, Star Trek and Dr. Who. I have been reading comic books since I was 11 and have over 10,000 in my personal collection. I used to podcast back in the day and I walked away due to health issues. I am back at it just to have fun talking geek stuff and have time with friends. I have been home for 7 months and work at home, I really need to talk to someone other than my hub and in-laws. I live in NorCal near San Francisco in a small suburb that is mainly tech industries.and startups related to tech. I follow two genres Sci-Fi/Fantasy and mysteries. Fave book series are The Expanse, Dune, The Dresden Files and The Saga of Seven Suns.

Anthony

Anthony is a life-long, proud blerd. He has been a contributor to the Sci-Fi Party Line Podcast and was a writer for Blackgeekdom.com. He was also a video game reviewer for BlogCritics.org. His fandoms include Star Wars, Star Trek, Stargate, Wheel of Time and Tolkien's Middle Earth. If you don't catch him reading a fantasy novel, he's probably hiding somewhere watching reruns of Lucifer.

Kacey

Kacey - Kacey is the newest member to the FHP family, joining in March 2021 after being a guest on the episodes discussing The Walking Dead. Her fandoms - in no particular order - are The Walking Dead, The Marvel Universe, Black Panther, Transformers, Stranger Things and the Fast and the Furious franchise. She is a Danai Gurira and Tyrese Gibson superfan! Her favorite cosplay is (of course) Michonne. She loves action flicks, old school music, football, crafting, running her business and traveling with her wife.
