Feb 20, 2019, 5:03 PM EST (Updated)

Happy Tuesday! More accurately: happy "new episode of SYFY FANGRRLS' Strong Female Characters podcast" day! We're practically redefining the calendar here.

This week, there's a lot to discuss - and we were super excited to be joined by April Reign to talk about all of it! From the rising hype levels over the upcoming premiere of Marvel's Black Panther to the 2018 Academy Awards and #OscarsSoWhite (the hashtag Reign herself created) to the opportunities afforded to non-white journalists, we examine it all in our newest episode.

Strong Female Characters examines our favorite female characters & storylines in genre and draws parallels to their real life counterparts & 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.
