There's no shortage of hero stories in our books, on TV, and in movies. And for a long time, most of our heroes, from flawed to super, had something in common: they were either white dudes or femme fatales. (Or in Superman's case, a space alien who passed as a white dude.) But wait! That doesn't mean we're doomed to have the same kinds of stories or the same kinds of heroes forever. Join Eula Scott Bynoe and Jeannie Yandel, hosts of KUOW’s Battle Tactics For Your Sexist Workplace podcast, for a fascinating, funny conversation about who gets to be the hero and why it matters.
Eula and Jeannie will welcome real life superheroes, comic book writer G. Willow Wilson and Salon.com TV critic Melanie McFarland.
