Jesi! Put the phone down!
Shelby basically had to pry Jesi’s phone from her hands to get her to records SPEW #7: Pokemon Go Crazy. And that’s only because she gets to talk about Pokemon Go.
In espisode 7, Shelby and Jesi talk about how Pokemon Go has impacted the SWFL community. They both have learned amazing things about their region because of Poke Stops. Also, Jesi has made several friends in SWFL just because she organized Fort Myers’ first Pokemon Go event downtown.
If you’re not from SWFL, you might not know that there are several Poke Stops near the river downtown. Some of them are so close they overlap. So Jesi got the great idea to organize a Pokemon Go Picnic on Sunday, July 17th. Jesi was even interviewed by the local news!
SPEW #7 also confirms Shelby and Jesi’s Pokemon cred. Find out what their first Pokemon games were, and most importantly, find out what Pokemon Go teams they’re on.
Check in soon with the SPEW crew here at Love Your Rebellion to find out how the Pokemon Go Picnic went! Jesi and Shelby are sure to have some silly stories for you.

SPEW is a nerd culture podcast based out of Fort Myers, Florida. Hosted by Shelby and Jesi, SPEW is a comedy show that features discussion about up and coming movies, popular and underground fandoms, conventions, comics, scifi, fantasy, and how the feminisms reflects on the nerdisms. The world of podcasting is filled with voices providing invaluable commentary, humor, and storytelling, but there are no active podcasts discussing feminism from a nerd perspective or nerd culture from a feminist perspective. SPEW is hoping to fill this gap!
The title of this podcast is inspired by a shared favorite fandom of co-hosts Jesi and Shelby – Harry Potter. Fans of the book series will recall S.P.E.W. as the passion project of Hermione Granger – Society of the Promotion of Elfish Welfare. Hermione refused to ignore the oppression and mistreatment of elves by the wizard majority despite the ridicule and scorn she received anytime she spoke up. This acronym is a fitting title for our show as feminists are often mocked and harassed for daring to speak out against injustice in nerd culture. To keep things interesting, we’ll be changing the meaning of the words behind the acronym with each episode.
