"In Episode 19, “Cataloging Fandom,” Elizabeth and Flourish talk to Ludi Price, a librarian and PhD student in information science whose research focuses on how fans collect, tag, share, and otherwise interact with information (e.g., fanart, fanfic, fanvids, facts about their fandoms, etc.). Then they read and discuss two listener comments. Topics covered include crowdsourcing, Jeremy Bentham, why Amazon.com’s search and tagging system sucks so much, yaoi/yuri and shounen ai/shoujo ai, and ageism in fandom."
