Jen, Kasey and Angela are at Austin Comic Con, 'womanning' their podcast booth in the Fan Group's section (table 2602). Last night, they were able to see "The Women of Star Trek" panel, featuring Gates McFadden and Marina Sirtis. This episode includes a brief overview by the co-hosts and then jumps into the Q & A with "Counselor Troi" and "Doctor Crusher". It was awesome. Apologies for the audio quality, on location devices pick up everything. Follow us on twitter @AnomalyPodcast and visit our Facebook Group page. More still to come from Comic Con this weekend! Stay "tuned".
