Six Smart Women Discussing Doctor Who

Content Warning: This week Deb and Tansy have a difficult discussion on Noel Clarke, John Barrowman, toxic work environments, and how this can affect your fandom experience. It wasn’t fun, but it was important. We understand if you want to skip this one, but if you do listen, note that we discuss sexual harassment, assault, and workplace bullying.
