Alexis, Mallory, and guest host Moriah dig into what canon even means and the different ways our notion of canon is evolving!
- Jesus fandom (AKA the OG canon)
- Shakespearean, Sherlockian, Lord of the Ringsian canons and how they’ve been adapted/added to
- Transmedia storytelling and sci-fi world-building (the different ways Star Wars and Star Trek have dealt with this issue)

- Publishing: the birth of canon?
- Cherry-picking and other ways the fandom has coped
