Episode 24: Podcasts of Sharks & Superheroes

Hello and welcome to This Week in Ladies!

Here's what we've got on tap for you this week:

  • This Week in Comics
    Ms. Marvel #3, Captain Marvel #2 and the all-new Lumberjanes | Ms. Marvel hits its stride, Captain Marvel encounters the Guardians of the Galaxy, giving us hope that we'll see her on the big screen (We've got a story idea, Marvel. Call us), and the Lumberjanes kick ass, take names and drink cocoa. After striking out with X-Men and Fearless Defenders, we finally get a lady ensemble comic we think's a winner! Lumberjanes is co-written by Noelle Stevenson, who not only did the illustrations for Rainbow Rowell's Fangirl, but also brought us The Broship of the Ring. And here's the Slate article on how the Carol Corps and the Kamala Korps are changing Marvel's sense of what kinds of superheroes sell.
  • This Week in the Book Report
    Non-stop non-fiction! We recommend some of our favorite nonfiction books for you (sophisticated books about religion and relationship, imperialism, and science from Allison, Tori Spelling from me). You can find all the books we discuss in the Book Report at our LibraryThing page! And the Sarah Vowell essay "You, Sir, Are No Rosa Parks" is up in its entirety over at Time (where it was originally published).
  • Dreams of Gods and Monsters
    Laini Taylor wraps up her Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy with a finale that isn't at all what we expected, but was everything we never knew we always wanted. Have you read it? Listen to our discussion, then join us in the comments to talk fantasy trilogies, petty revenge, beautiful language and Ziri forever!
  • This Week in Shit You Should Be Listening To
    "IOU" by Metric
    from Friend of the Show Julia M.
