Strong Female Characters #8: We deep-dive into the (limited) history of female explorers in genre

Dec 18, 2018, 2:00 PM EST (Updated)

Guess who's back, guess who's back, guess who's back. If you guessed "Cher and Preeti with a new episode of the SYFY FANGRRLS podcast Strong Female Characters," you win all the marbles. 

This week, we're talking all about the (very limited) history of female explorers in genre. Fingers crossed that this changes in the future, especially with the rise of a slightly updated Lara Croft in the new Tomb Raider movie. We also sit down for a chat with Blue Planet II producer Orla Doherty, who discusses the ins and outs of making the groundbreaking nature documentary and introducing an audience to the beauty and wonder of our planet.

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.
