/report is a slash podcast hosted by Mklutz and Rageprufrock. 101 episodes were produced over the course of five years from August 2011 until the podcasters called it quits in June 2016.[1]

/report came out of the primordial ooze of cheap technology and even cheaper tastes in media consumption. If you've ever been listening to a podcast about culture and wished it was a little more downmarket or the dudes would make out, or if you've found yourself watching obscure movies just to see your favorite Canadian sci-fi actor romp around like a third-year theater student, you've found a kindred spirit in us. Mklutz and Pru host our weekly (usually) Sunday updates, and have cultivated their geek and fandom bona fides in such terrible dark corners of the internet such as Sailor Moon, the X-Files, Stargate: Atlantis, writing fanfiction, and hosting a slash fandom podcast.

Each episode is announced on the slashreport Dreamwidth community and tumblr, and there is also a slashreport twitter. Although the hosts are slashers, the focus of individual episodes is not exclusively on slash; many episodes focus on a particular television show, manga, or fan activity.

The podcast was initially named Slash Cast until it was discovered that the name was already in use.

Reactions/Reviews

I was so unsure about this podcast I’ve been listening to because it was just another geeky review show but they just started pitching Supernatural Pacific Rim AUs to each other and when the saddest one got pitched three different hosts screamed ‘FUCK YOU’ and I think one walked away from her mic. [2]
Where has this been? Why did no one tell me about this?![3]
They talk (for up to 2 hours!) on specific fandoms, movies, meta (the most current podcast was on science and they discussed the reality of time travel) and have a ball doing it. They're intelligent, witty, don't pull punches, and look at everything with their slash goggles firmly on.[4]
Okay so update: Slashreport is amazing.... I personally started listening to the archives instead of starting with the recent stuff, so I’m listening to them talk about stuff that was happening in 2011. This is both really cool and kind of weird because first of all most of the stuff they talk about I remember either seeing happen or participated in, and secondly some of it was stressful, like Delicious going wacky and the kind of slow transition from Livejournal where for a while no one knew what to do.[5]
