About this podcast
An intelligent must-listen podcast exploring genre’s attitude to women
This podcast series was inspired by writer Juliet McKenna who recently commented on her blog about the many so-called ‘best of’ genre fiction lists that were conspicuously lacking in entries written by women. Science fiction, fantasy, and horror are genres created and loved by women as much as men, and yet the majority of the dialogue surrounding them still suggest that women are in the minority. We are here to prove to all genre lovers that there is a place for female writers and great female characters amongst the men folk!
New content every Thursday: podcast episodes alternating with our ‘Five Questions’ blog feature.
Favourite panel of #fantasycon2018 was Breaking the Glass Slipper with @ClaireNorth42 & @dedbutdrmng. From Koala fingerprints to Sherlock ‘off his tits’. It covered a lot. Also for female detectives just getting on with their job without being ‘damaged’? @AnnCleeves‘ Vera books!
