Listen to Strong Female Characters #3: all about Marvel and women in STEM

Dec 12, 2017

It's Tuesday, and you know what that means: there's another episode of our SYFY Fangrrls podcast, Strong Female Characters, available now wherever you prefer to listen to your podcasts!

This week, it's all about women in STEM - both in fiction and in real life. We touch on some of the most well-known scientists and tech experts in comics, including two of the smartest supers: Riri "Ironheart" Williams, Lunella Lafayette (aka "Moon Girl"), as well as Mockingbird's Bobbi Morse and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Jemma Simmons. We also talk to NASA engineer Powtawche Valerino about her background in STEM and her role working at NASA's JPL (Jet Propulsion Laboratory). Listen to the episode below!

Strong Female Characters is a new show that is co-hosted by Fangrrls managing editor Cher Martinetti and contributing editor Preeti Chhibber. Join them each week as they draw parallels between their favorite female characters in genre and their potential real-life counterparts. Through smart and funny convos, Cher, Preeti and a different guest will talk about the latest involving girl geeks, dissect oft-used tropes, talk representation in media, and laugh a lot.
