Episode 86 – Wonder Women

Infinity +1: Powered by Geekdom House.

The only podcast that knows the difference between a wyvern and a dragon, it’s Infinity +1! This week, Jason and Allison are joined by the other half of the Rudge family, Marilyn Rudge, to talk about fictional childhood heroes and give out a new Sweetdiculous Award.

Then in the second segment, we revisit Themyscira and 1914 London with Kyla Neufeld’s Compassion and Strength Collide in Wonder Woman. The hosts reexamine the seeming lack of strong female heroes in some of their favourite childhood franchises and discuss how the trend of strong female leads in big budget science fiction may lead to a new generation of empowered geeks.

Question of the Week: What character did you look up to when you were younger?

Sweetdiculous Award: iZombie
