Strong Female Characters #15: we discuss feminism and allyship with 9-1-1's Oliver Stark

Mar 27, 2018

This week, things are going a little more smoothly in terms of our Strong Female Characters podcast. We're convinced it's because of all the hoops we had to jump through to ensure you got last week's episode to listen to in your earbuds (or other audio device of your choice). Fortunately, this week's recording went off without a hitch, so by the time you're reading this you've probably already seen a brand-new episode drop into your feed! We've got you.

We're talking about a range of subjects this week, from the SFF romance novels we just can't put down to male midlife crisis earrings to female protagonists in video games (or lack thereof). Plus, longtime Fangrrl friend Oliver Stark (9-1-1Into the Badlands) joins us to discuss feminism and allyship. Check out the new episode below!


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.
