Wanda Harward is a member of The Charlotte Geeks, assisting Joey Starnes and Carol Cowles with Geek Gala, The Geekery Market (formerly Muggles Market), and other shenanigans as required. Her geeky interests include anime, filk music, renaissance faires, and gaming (online and tabletop). She runs a twice monthly D&D 5e group presently. She has been attending cons off and on since the 80s, and consistently since 2006. Professionally, Wanda is a retired social worker, current tarot reader, and life coach (findingthekeytarot.com/ ). She has been reading tarot for over 25 years (professionally since 2017). She has been a tarot reader for many events and locations, including Carolina Renaissance Festival, The Geekery Market, SagaCon, ConCarolinas, ConGregate, and professional events.
Joey Starnes (aka the GiddyGeeker) does not claim to be an expert on all geekeries—she’s just happy to organize them. She runs the Charlotte Geeks (home of the Guardians of the Geekery podcast), the Geek Gala, and the Geekery Market. Her main geekdoms include Doctor Who, Marvel, Star Wars, board games, WoW, and most anything British. She also has a slight obsession with HGTV, Food Network, and TikTok. She’s mostly prepared for a Zombie Apocalypse but is always willing to upgrade her bug-out bag contents. She has yet to build up an immunity to iocane powder. When not scooting from con to con handing out flamingos, she’s blissfully ensconced on the couch with her dog Angel and her husband Matt. You can find her in all the places by searching for @giddygeeker, but it may be easiest to start at charlottegeeks.com.
