Abstract: The search for dark matter is indisputably now a multi-disciplinary and multi-decadal effort. While the models and methods under consideration have expanded tremendously, astrophysical indirect detection remains one of the best and sometimes only ways to challenge the well-worn--but undeniably compelling--notion of the thermal relic WIMP. In this talk I will present two gamma-ray searches (alike in dignity), weaponizing the last 14 years of Fermi data to search for hints of dark matter physics.
