Hi I’m Karama Horne and I’m theblerdgurl. I’m a freelance Writer, Producer and Contributing Editor to SYFYWire. I have my own weekly column called Indie Comics Spotlight where I get to interview some of the most interesting people in the medium right now. I’m also the co-host of SYFY Wire’s Who Won the Week Podcast. And because I don’t have enough to do, I also have my own podcast and I co-host The Radical Geeks Monthly live podcast with Angélique Roché. When I’m not podcasting, I’m streaming anime, reading comics, writing about representation in pop culture , hosting live events and red carpet premieres.
This journey actually started on theblerdgurl tumblr page, which was my vehicle for rants about mainstream media and raves about all things geek. Well after this post went viral and people really responded to this one and this one as well, My goal is to provide commentary and perspective from the often overlooked black nerd demographic, from a snarky female point of view. So this is theblerdgurl’s home. Don’t worry, I’m keeping the tumblr page up, but from now on all reviews and interviews will be posted here first. I hope that you like it here and that you’ll visit (and comment) often.
