Welcome, listeners! After a small break due to travel, we're back with an all-new episode of our SYFY FANGRRLS Strong Female Characters podcast.

This week, we're breaking down the aftermath of the "postponement" of Universal FanCon and how it's affected people involved at all levels of con participation—from volunteers, promoters and talent to freelance writers and former staff from the outlet Black Girl Nerds.

Cher sat down for a post-weekend convo with Kayla Marie, Joelle Monique and Clarkisha Kent to discuss the fallout.

Strong Female Characters examines our favorite female characters and storylines in genre and draws parallels to their real-life counterparts and current events. Fangrrls managing editor Cher Martinetti and contributing editor Preeti Chhibber welcome a different guest each week to explore oft-used tropes, representation in media, and the surprising and sometimes humorous ways in which pop culture and science fiction can influence our daily lives.
