"The Philosofan" is a 'VideoReviewShow' show on {{Geekvision}} and the Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses forums dealing with the anthropological side of fandom, & geek culture, & fangirls. Lots of fangirls. It is created and hosted by [=TBelle=], AKA Haley Baker, AKA Tropers/{{Trickster-Belle}}. Her videos can be seen on {{Geekvision}} [[http://geekvision.tv/channels/the-philosofan/ here]].
