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!
From rebellion leaders to scream queens and everything in between, women have shaped sci-fi and fantasy since its inception. Each week Fangrrls founder & managing editor Cher Martinetti and contributing editor and author Preeti Chhibber celebrate the countless badass women in geek culture through funny, witty, and unfiltered deep dives into the nerdverse.
