Hello and welcome to This Week in Ladies!
Here's what we've got on tap for you this week:
- This Week in Comics
Saga #23, Lumberjanes #6, Rat Queens #8, Hawkeye #20, Sheltered #11, and Thor #1 | Saga keeps on keepin' on with the "oh shit!" moments, Kate Bishop leaves LA in her dust, and Thor is totally lady, but just which lady remains a mystery.
- This Week in the Book Report
Magazines | We love magazines, particularly in physical form, particularly when on a plane. We talk about the ones we read for the articles and the ones where we're just here for the porn.
- Real Ladies: Math
Every fifth episode, we talk real ladies. Today, we're joined by special guest Dr. Eileen McGinnis to talk about Countess Ada Lovelace, mathematician and "poetical scientist." Find Ada Lovelace Day events near you! (Austin's event is hosted by Art.Science.Gallery, a seriously cool place.) Check out the webcomic 2D Goggles, about the crime-fighting adventures of Ada Lovelace and Charles Babbage (plus her forthcoming book!). Eileen also recommends this collection of Lovelace's letters ("Enchantress of Numbers" is a pretty sweet title.) And as a sidenote, there was recently a dustup over an underwear company using female tech CEOs as models for their Ada collection.
