None! At least we don’t think there was. If there was a term used in this episode that you would like us to clarify, feel free to email us to let us know. We will update this notes section accordingly.
Welcome to Fandom Cracked! In this pilot episode, you’ll find out who your hosts are (including our aliases we’ll be using in future podcasts), and our hopes for this podcast. We’ll also be discussing what a fandom is, and what it means to be a fan!
