Hi, I’m Claire. I make nerdy videos & a fannish podcast!

Claire RousseauI’m a life-long sci-fi & fantasy fan with a thing for speaking dragons, cross-dressing heroines & magic-as-science. Non-SFF things that make her happy include gruesome Victorian medicine, obscure language facts & most food-related TV.
Also a fangirl, cat-mum and Slytherpuff.

Probably true but you can’t prove it:
•   Too many fanfic ideas, too little time
•   Consumes way too much chocolate and coffee
•   Most likely listening to a podcast or audiobook right now

My podcast

Over on youtube, I make videos about books and nerdy things!

I focus mostly on science-fiction and fantasy novels, novellas and graphic works, with some romance, non-fiction and YA sprinkled into the mix.


Radio Free Fandom is an aiming-to-be-fortnightly podcast in which my guests & I get down & nerdy about the media and stories that we love.

Radio Free FandomThe show aims to celebrate all of the many, varied, weird & wonderful things we love, and all of the many, varied, weird & wonderful ways in which we express our nerdy, fannish obsessions – from intricate narrative analysis to squeeing about fanfic to intricate narrative analysis about fanfic that makes us squee!
