Episode 69: Hail to the Chief

Hello and welcome to This Week in Ladies!

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

  • This Week in Comics
    Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #4, Captain Marvel #2, Saga #33, All-New, All-Different Avengers #4, Spider-Man #1, Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur #3, Faith #1, Paper Girls #5, A-Force #2, and Jem and the Holograms #11 | This week, Squirrel Girl visits the Doombrary; Thor plants a big, wet one on Captain America; and Jerrica wears a fierce shark bathing suit that we'd do just about anything for. Except turn evil, which is apparently what she did.
  • Hail to the Chief! Fictional American Presidents
    This week, we're all about fictional American presidents, some of whom weren't created by Aaron Sorkin (although, let's face it--his are among the best). From comedies like Dave and My Fellow Americans to serious explorations of American politics like The West Wing, we cover it all. We get emotional about great fictional presidential speeches (Bill Pullman, duh) and express our discontent that we can't even get a fictional lady into office in this country. Tune in for all this and to find out what novel about an American president we both read at an inappropriate age. Want to know more about fictional presidents? Wikipedia is, unsurprisingly, a good place to start. Check out this list of fictional Black presidents.
