ImageIn this double episode, Stephanie, Sylvie and I take our first run at a discussion about women in contemporary North American fiction. I like to think that we did well in this episode discussing heroic women in fiction as well as a range of other related topics including prejudices and double standards.

This was originally going to be a split episode, but it became plain to me (Randy), that this episode had to stay in one piece because we get a little serious about things and we come to a conclusion that I think requires the proper context.

Ultimately, our discussion took a life of its own and went in an unexpected, but interesting direction. The topic was much larger than we could have contained in the time given, so I’m sure we’re going to revisit this topic in the future from a different angle.

Thank you so much for listening, please share your comments on this topic and our approach and / or conclusions. I’m begging here, we want to hear from you.

In the second and final part of the Joss Whedon celebration we look at his more recent work, look at people who have worked with him and done extremely well since and finally, we get excited about what we can expect from our big damn hero.

Here’s the list of topics: Firefly, the Whedon-less years on TV, Dollhouse, the writer’s strike, Doctor Horrible’s Sing Along Blog, Cabin in the Woods, Avengers, Much Ado About Nothing, Geek and Sundry, Once Upon A Time, and other critical geeky sub-topics.
We answer our very first listener question and it becomes the topic of our next episode: Comic books that have been adapted to the silver screen!

Our music is provided by Steve Everett, who can be found on www.SteveEverett.net. I play West Coast Time, and wonder why he’s not massively famous.
