The Shipping (Pod)Cast

A multi-fandom podcast for the shipper in you, hosted by Shirasade. Creating a chain of interviews with fans talking about their OTPs and why they love them. Zero judgement, 100% squee. On an indefinite hiatus after January 2021.


Special 04 - Boys Love Recommendations
As a last hurrah, I hope you enjoy this Patreon special from August 2020, in which I ramble about my favourite BL shows. You can find a continually updated recs list here. Thanks for sailing with me, my dear sailors! Please stay safe, stay healthy, let fandom help you stay sane - and remember: You are the captain of your ship.

Spot x Racetrack (Newsies) with Savannah
A multifandom podcast for the shipper in you. Happy new year! I'm getting into it more at the end of the episode, but this will be the last interview, at least for the foreseeable future. So it’s great that  we’re wrapping with a fun chat with the lovely Savannah about Spot and Race from the musical Newsies. Thanks for sticking with me, sailors! Show notes on

Arwen x Aragorn (Lord of the Rings) with Shania
A multi-fandom podcast for the shipper in you. This episode brings  out the Lord of the Rings nerd in me and I had a wonderful time waxing  rhapsodic with Shania not only about Arwen and Aragorn’s literally epic  love story but also many other things we love about Tolkien’s enchanted  world.

Peggy x Steve (Marvel) with Gen
A couple of days late, but here I am with another offering from the MCU – in another lengthy episode Gen and I talk about yet another Steve ship, because Steve apparently goes with everyone. ;) This one’s special, though, having the distinct honour of a) being canon and b) containing the amazing and wonderful Peggy Carter.   Show notes on
110:27 10/12/20
Beauregard x Yasha (Critical Role) with Dawn
Back from my summer hiatus, this is a whopper of an episode - not just a crash course in the D&D podcast Critical Role and its canon femslash couple but also a fun conversation about everything from fandom to cosplay to queerness. Show notes on

Hiatus 2020 Check-in
Just checking in from my summer hiatus, which will last a bit longer than originally planned.
05:16 8/12/20
Enjolras x Grantaire (Les Mis) with Perlog Annwyl
Who would have thought there’s so much to talk about a ship originating in an 19th century novel… But Perlog Annwyl and I sure have a lot to talk about, making this a nice long episode for you to dig your teeth into before my summer break. Show notes on
97:21 6/19/20
Winn Schott x Querl Dox/Brainiac 5 (Supergirl) with Rachel
Sometimes we latch onto ships that might at first glance seem far-fetched, just because we feel that these two characters would somehow click and make a good couple. That’s what happened to Rachel with Winn and Brainy - and when they finally met in Supergirl canon, it turned out the chemistry was undeniable. :) Show notes on
53:57 6/5/20
Edward x Winry (Full Metal Alchemist) with Derek
A multi-fandom podcast for the shipper in you. In many places, restrictions are being lifted, but we’re all still a long way from normal. So maybe you won’t mind that this week’s episode turned out a bit longer and ramblier than normal, because as it turns out, Derek pretty much discovered fandom while preparing to talk about the canon ship of Edward Elric and Winry Rockbell from Full Metal Alchemist. We had a blast chatting not just about EdWin but also many other shiny things. :) Show notes on
99:22 5/22/20
Booth x Brennan (Bones) with Athena
I hope this episode finds you healthy and safe, wherever you are, whatever restrictions you might be living under. If you’re anything like me, you’ll have found refuge in fandom. Personally, I also find the structures and guaranteed outcomes of mystery shows soothing, so today’s episode is pretty perfect, as Athena​ and I visit the crime procedural Bones, which ran from 2005 to 2017, and its ultimate ‘opposites attract’ ship.

Special 03 - Rare Pair Shipping Round Table
In turbulent times like these, fandom can prove a wonderful distraction and escape. Therefore I’m releasing my three Patreon specials for all my listeners in between the regular scheduled episodes. This is the third and last one - a round table chat with previous interview partners Mia, Nich, Kimmy and Phoe about the special hell - or special pleasure? - of rare pair shipping. Enjoy!
84:17 5/1/20
Rey x Kylo (Star Wars) with Ray
A multi-fandom podcast for the shipper in you. Reylo is the biggest ship to come out of the new Star Wars trilogy, and Ray explains with great passion why she fell in love with this ultimate enemies-to-lovers pairing. (We also talk a bit about our quarantine experiences - if that's not your thing, skip about 13 minutes after the intro.) Show notes on
104:23 4/24/20
Special 02 - On- and Offscreen Chemistry with Jalec Squad (live from ItaCon 3)
In turbulent times like these, fandom can prove a wonderful distraction and escape. Therefore I'm releasing my three Patreon specials for all my listeners in between the regular scheduled episodes. Attending a Shadowhunters convention with some of the lovely ladies from Jalec Squad, we tackled the controversial topic of Real Person Ships. Show notes on Patreon.

Pagan x Ishwari (Far Cry 4) with miss-rivia
These are trying times. I very much hope listening how Mazikeen  introduces me to Pagan Min and Ishwari Ghale, our first video game ship  from Far Cry 4, will provide you with distraction and entertainment -  that’s what fandom’s for, isn’t it? Show notes can be found on

Special 01 - Steam Powered Giraffe with maya-zulf
In turbulent times like these, fandom can prove a wonderful distraction and escape. Therefore I’m releasing my three Patreon specials for all my listeners in between the regular scheduled episodes. Today it's all about the awesome steampunk concept band Steam Powered Giraffe. They consist of a bunch of steam-powered robots (yes really!), and maya-zulf introduces me to their wide-ranging lore and funky music with great enthusiasm. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did! :) Show notes on Patreon.
44:16 4/3/20
Jude x Cardan (The Folk of the Air) with Alyssa
Especially in these turbulent times, fandom can be a wonderful distraction, and this week Alyssa introduces me to the young adult book series The Folk of the Air by Holly Black and its main ship of Jude Duarte and Cardan Greenbriar. Show notes on
65:58 3/27/20
Brienne x Tormund (Game of Thrones) with teamreylo
Brienne and Tormund were never one of the big ships in the Game of Thrones fandom, but teamreylo was attracted to them right away. She makes a very good case as to why they could have made a great couple. Show notes as always on
48:04 3/13/20
Valery x Boris (Chernobyl) with Elena
In this episode Elena and I talk about the HBO mini-series Chernobyl, which covered the 1986 nuclear plant disaster and its aftermath. Valery and Boris aka Valoris start out in a wary, almost antagonistic partnership and end up firm allies. No wonder Elena ships them! Show notes can be found on
85:40 2/28/20
Stanley x Stanford (Gravity Falls) with Mitchan
We celebrate Valentine's Day with our first incest ship as Mitchan tells me all about the interesting dynamic between twins Stanley and Stanford Pines from the animated show Gravity Falls. Show notes as always on
60:07 2/14/20
Koiso Ryoko x Seiichirō Kitano (The Angel Densetsu) with Trevosh
In this episode Trevosh introduces me to this wonderfully weird slice-of-life manga series with its unique protagonist and adorable friends-to-lovers slow burn. Show notes on
63:02 1/31/20
Padme x Anakin (Star Wars) with Kaitie
Padme Amidala and Anakin Skywalker from the Star Wars prequel trilogy share the ultimate tragic story of forbidden love. Kaitie shares some of the things that appeal to her the most, despite me getting side-tracked by all sort of other fandom things. We also talk some more general Star Wars (and Jar Jar Binks in particular), because it’s almost impossible not to have opinions in this fandom. Show notes on
70:08 1/17/20
Marinette Dupain-Cheng x Chat Noir (Miraculous Ladybug) with Theabeea
We’re starting the new year with Miraculous Ladybug, another animated series, and the het pairing of Marinette Dupain-Cheng aka Ladybug and Chat Noir aka Adrien Agreste, who make up an entire love square all by themselves. As always, show notes on
59:33 1/3/20
Adora x Catra (She-Ra) with August
With She-Ra we’re back with a fandom I know nothing about, but August gives me a great primer on what makes Catra and Adora such a wonderful pairing – one with the definite potential to become canon, which makes a nice chance, especially for a lesbian couple. Show notes on
53:50 12/20/19
Steve x Bucky (Marvel) with Jen
A multi-fandom podcast for the shipper in you. To call Stucky a fandom juggernaut is to put it mildly, and Jen and myself have lots of fun exploring the vast realms of Steve Rogers and Bucky Barnes in the MCU. Show notes with links on
81:15 12/6/19
Tang Yi x Shao Fei (HIStory3: The Trap) with Evelyn
Thank you for sticking with me, sailors! For this first episode after the hiatus Evelyn kindly came to my rescue - and we talked about a ship I enjoy very much as well. The Trap is part of the third season of the Taiwanese HIStory anthology series and our first foray into BL (Boys Love). This is an area I've fallen headfirst into recently, so we do get a bit side-tracked sometimes, but always come back to Tang Yi and Shao Fei. All links in the show notes.
52:06 11/22/19
Hi from my hiatus!
A quick update: Unfortunately the episode planned to end my mini hiatus fell through, so now I'm looking for someone who'd like to talk to me about their OTP. Any and all ships welcome that haven't been covered before!
01:54 10/11/19
JC x Justin (NSync) with stellarbisexual
With popslash we're moving into dangerous waters, as I talk with stellarbisexual about the first Real Person ship for this podcast (not counting the special Patreon episode). However, mostly we bond over being fandom olds and squee excitedly as we reminisce - not just about JC Chavez and Justin Timberlake but also some other shared fandoms. Show notes on
70:03 8/30/19
Ep. 19 - Eddie x Richie (IT) with Xander
When I realised I’d be visiting the famous horror franchise IT, I must admit to being just a bit apprehensive, since I’m a total wuss - but after all, I’d survived talking about cannibals before, in the episode about Hannibal. And when I talked with Xander about Richie Tozier and Eddie Kaspbrak (aka Reddie), I learned much to my surprise that this fandom likes its ship mostly in one flavour: fluff! Show notes on
73:20 8/16/19
Arthur x Eames (Inception) with Bucket
Arthur and Eames only share a handful of moments in Christopher Nolan’s Inception – however, the subjects of episode 18 somehow managed to take fandom by storm. Looking into the hows and whys and whatfors with Bucket was especially fun for me, because it’s been quite a while since an episode was about a pairing that I myself ship, too. Show notes on
86:43 8/2/19
Bakugou Katsuki x Kirishima Eijirou (Boku No Hero Academia) with Aida
We revisit another fandom - this time, we’re looking at Boku No Hero Academia from the perspective of Aida, who ships previous podcast object Bakugou Katsuki with Kirishima Eijirou and shares some of the reasons why she loves how their relationship develops in canon as well as plenty of fanworks for you to enjoy.
