About Lori Morimoto

The Podcast

“It’s a Thing!” is a podcast that introduces new and historically significant work in the field of fan studies to all comers. It features accessible interviews with established and up-and-coming fan studies scholars, as well as fan studies-adjacent journalists, critics, writers and fans, all in hope of demonstrating that fan studies is indeed a thing.

What does your patronage contribute to?

Podcast website (US$96/year)
Recording Proxy (US$120/year)
Academic Books (+/-US$720/year)
Labor (interview prep, interviewing, editing, transcribing)

"It's a Thing!" is a labor of love and part of my ongoing attempt to bridge fan studies and the wider world. As of now it's a one-person production, and your patronage is critical to enabling my preparation, recording, and hosting of the podcast. It also affords me the time to read, record, and edit, so that I may bring you the best podcast possible.
