Strong Female Characters #16: we talk with Justina Ireland about her new book Dread Nation

May 28, 2021, 3:50 PM EDT (Updated)

It's the day you've all been waiting for: new "episode of Strong Female Characters" day. One of us is healthy, one of us is slightly under-the-weather, and both of us are coping with an unnatural abundance of springtime snow (which should be an oxymoron, but not always). In spite of those thwarting factors, we came together to bring you the sixteenth installment of our SYFY FANGRRLS podcast.

This week, we're discussing a range of subjects, from zombies and Santa Clarita Diet to Ready Player One to the return of the Fantastic Four. We're also joined by author Justina Ireland to discuss her new book, Dread Nation, which comes out today! 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.
