Solo: A Star Wars Story- Donald Glover as Lando (droid refilling drink)

Strong Female Characters #23: discussing our genre thirsts with the hosts of Thirst Aid Kit

May 30, 2018

We're back, and we're going out strong with a brand-new installment of our SYFY FANGRRLS Strong Female Characters podcast prior to our upcoming hiatus. (For more on that, catch up on our last episode.)

We know you've been waiting for all of our reactions to Solo: A Star Wars Story, and we're here to break down all the highs and lows of the latest standalone flick in the Star Wars franchise. We're also joined by Bim Adewunmi and Nichole Perkins from BuzzFeed's Thirst Aid Kit podcast to confess all of our very real and never-ending thirst for some of our favorite figures in genre. 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.
