For anyone who thought the "International Day of Femslash" was a bit of an exaggeration, look no further than "Los Hombres de Paco". No, that's not a telenovela from across the border, that's a police comedy-drama airing across the ocean in SPAIN. As it turns out, however, a couple thousand miles of salt water and a language barrier can't compete with the power of the Internet when it comes to hooking American fans with its well-written canon lesbian pairing of Pepa and Silvia, or "PepSi". Especially when my guests make it as easy as possible for new fans who don't speak even a lick of Spanish to be pulled in. We'll be talking to Misty Flores, talented PepSi fanfic author and writer of the Spanish-to-English episode recaps available at www.ralst.com. And I'll be reading from an online Q&A I conducted with DosSemanas, owner and maintainer of the Youtube channel PepSiEnglish, where thousands of subscribers can find compilations featuring every Pepa/Silvia scene with English subtitles. We'll talk about how PepSi's popularity spread from Spanish to English-speaking communities, what makes PepSi so special for my guests, and what you can do to help save PepSi in the wake of recent tragic developments.
