Fangasm (originally The Potterotica Podcast) is a podcast that reads and discusses erotic fanfiction. In each episode the hosts read aloud a chapter from a piece of Harry Potter erotic fanfiction; these stories are submitted by the authors themselves or are used with the author's permission. As they say in the preface to every episode, the podcast is rated "H for Horny."
Didn’t know erotic fanfiction existed? Neither did hosts and fangirls and fanboy Allie LeFevere, Lyndsay Rush & Danny Chapman...until now. In each episode, they read and discuss a hot and steamy chapter from an erotic fanfiction story. Yep, pop culture just popped a boner. Previously known as ‘The Potterotica Podcast’, Fangasm is no longer monogamous with Harry Potter, and instead, has gone poly by reading erotic fanfiction from all fandoms.
In December 2018 they did another Chicago show called "POTTEROTICA LIVE!: a HO, HO, HO-RNY HOLIDAY SHOW".
At the start of 2019, the podcast was rebranded as Fangasm, and episodes started featuring The Office fanfiction.
In October 2019, the podcast announced that they will be ending the series with one last season going back to where it all began. Season 13 is to start next week with the theme "Harry Potter"
In season 1, Allie and Lyndsay read In the Prefect's Bathroom, a Hermione/Snape fic, by Ms_Figg. At the end of the season, a short episode was released explaining that the hosts had tracked down Ms_Figg's relatives, as she had passed away, and received approval to use the fic.
A Side of Her So Rarely Seen was written specifically for host Danny.
