Be The Serpent is a podcast hosted by Alexandra Rowland, Freya Marske, and Jennifer Mace. The podcast contains discussion of many types of media, including novels, television shows, theater, movies, Original Fiction, and Fanfiction. Each episode centers around a certain theme or trope and uses three pieces of media as "tentpoles" for the discussion.


With new episodes every other Wednesday, Be The Serpent is a podcast by three red-headed Slytherinish fantasy authors who enjoy shouting about everything from academic mythology to dick jokes (and sometimes, both at once). In this show, we talk about pieces of media that are exciting or interesting to us, including the role of fanfiction as an integral yet oft-overlooked part of the literary conversation and in the broader cultural context. We love tropes, fantasy economics, unreliable narrators, critiquing penis metaphors, and crying about our feelings. Take a shot every time we say the word 'lubrication'. It is, obviously, a podcast of extremely deep literary merit.[1]
