About Our Guests

Chloe is a queer, disabled feminist. She has worked in the non-profit sector for most of her adult life. In her free time, she produces and co-hosts the independent podcast Warriors, Bards N’ Brews with her spouse, Sara. The podcast was born of their mutual love of Xena: Warrior Princess and queer media in general (and their inability to stop talking about it). She is also a cohost of Feminist Killjoys: A Music Podcast  with Sara. She also enjoys photography, being a cat mom, and craft beer.
Sara is a grad school escapee who still studies pop culture and gender theory for fun. When not at work in the nonprofit sector and being a part-time beer wrangler, they cohost Warriors Bards ‘n Brews (A Xena Podcast) with their wife and homicidal housecat, and also cohost Feminist Killjoys: A Music Podcast. They also spend a lot of time yelling about queer things on the internet.
 
Please note that there is some adult language in this episode so pop on those headphones!
