It's Tuesday, and that can only mean one thing: it's time for a new episode of Strong Female Characters. The weather might be chaotic outside this week, but inside we're nice and cozy and paying tribute to one of our favorite fictional female reporters with one of her biggest fans.
In honor of her anniversary, we're talking about none other than Lois Lane. Author Gwenda Bond, who writes a younger and fearless version of the character in her Lois Lane series, joins us to celebrate our favorite comic book journalist's 80th anniversary, debate Lois & Supes as a couple, and go on weird tangents about cults and magical sex with Constantine. Listen to the 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.
