Women at Warp is a biweekly podcast where four women talk about Star Trek, its representations of women, contributions of women behind the scenes, and other fun Trek topics.
Andi went through most of her adult life sadly unaware of the Star Trek universe until she launched @FirstTimeTrek, a Twitter account dedicated to live-tweeting her first impressions of Star Trek. Slowwwlllllyy.
Since then, she has appeared on array of Star Trek podcasts sharing her fresh perspective on the shenanigans of Starfleet, as well as recapping new Discovery episodes for the Women at Warp blog.
She lives in Chicago, devoting her time to drop-kicking the Patriarchy and cuddling Mary Cat and Jerry Cat.
In middle school Grace Moore realized the only way to rebel against sex, drugs, and rock n roll was to talk about fictional space explorers on the internet. She’s been podcasting and blogging for a literal decade which is metaphorically how long she will rant about it. She has contributed as a writer to Mythcreants, Journey Planet, and the Women at Warp blog (natch).
Based out of Seattle she attended the Evergreen State College where she studied fine arts and literature. She’s a beast at karaoke and hates ants. Like a cave diver searching for meaning among a million indecipherable wall scribbles, you can explore her many many MANY pet interests on her twitter @bonecrusherjenk.
Jarrah Hodge fell in love with Star Trek watching TNG with her dad and older siblings. She blogs about feminism and women’s issues in Star Trek at trekkiefeminist.com.
She has spoken on women in Star Trek at Star Trek Las Vegas and Geek Girl Con and appeared on CTV television and podcasts like Subspace Transmissions, Trekabout and All Things Trek.
She lives in Ottawa, Canada with her cats Odo and Sandwiches. Find her on Twitter @jarrahpenguin.
Sue is a life-long Star Trek fan, and has been a member of the online fan community since the days of usenet. She was probably much too young to be on usenet…
She has a deep-abiding love of fandom history, and has written and spoken on the subject for various outlets. She’s appeared on panels at Dragon Con, Star Trek Las Vegas, New York Comic Con, and The Paley Center for Media, among others. Though Trek is her first love, Sue is also a member of The 501st Legion, The Rebel Legion, Empire Saber Guild, and the NYC Ghostbusters.
Between podcasts, Sue is occupied with the care and feeding of her cats Oswin, Catalina, and Tilly. Find her on Twitter @spaltor.
