Pop culture journalist Victoria L. Johnson hosts the Sailor Moon Fan Club podcast, where she interviews authors, editors, gamers, cosplayers, webcomic creators, and more. All of them are fans of the popular 90s magical girl anime Sailor Moon.

My memories of the 90s include watching English dubbed (and often censored) anime like Pokemon, Digimon, Cardcaptor Sakura (Cardcaptors in the US), and Sailor Moon. Like many others in my generation, Toonami, Fox Kids, and 4Kids come to mind when asked about my first exposure to anime. And like every other anime at the time, Sailor Moon continues to influence media worldwide. From Western animation to YA novels, you can spot references and homages to Sailor Moon in mainstream and indie media today.
