Episode 1: Pilot

Hello and welcome to This Week in Ladies! 

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

  • This Week in Comics
    Marvel NOW! "X-Men 001": The One with All the Ladies | Marvel debuts an all-woman X-Men team and we have thoughts. Summary: We're cautiously optimistic, but we need Storm to put her boobs away. Also: Please don't be a vampire, Jubilee.
  • Iron Man 3: Pepper Potts, why so great?  (4:49-9:48 for spoiler-phobes)
    We talk about Pepper Potts, Maya Hansen, and how IM3 passes the Bechdel test.* If you're interested in reading more about Iron Man 3 as seen through a feminist lens, check out the differing perspectives of Alyssa Rosenberg on Slate and Megan Kearns on Bitch Flicks. We side more with Rosenberg, but both are thoughtful examinations of Pepper's role in the Iron Man franchise.
  • The Marvel Cinematic Universe 
    Guardians of the Galaxy casting news and rumors (Team Glenn Close!) plus: Which Hogwarts house is Captain America? You may be surprised by our choice.
  • This Week in "You Haven't Seen What ?" 
    Allison watches Jaws for the first time.
  • This Week in Shit You Should Be Listening To
    "Warsaw" by Dessa
  •   Shout outs 

Thanks for listening!
