Bitch Radio: Media Literacy, Criticism, and Production Panel from GeekGirlCon

Kelsey and I traveled up to Seattle last weekend for two days of geekery at the first-ever Geek Girl Con! We went to panels on women in video games, race and gender in geekdom, women in horror fans, and way more. We were also honored to be on the panel “Media Literacy, Criticism and Production” along with some other really rad women. For this episode of Bitch Radio, here’s a good chunk of our panel for you to listen to. Along with me and Kelsey, you’ll hear from Kristy Guevara-Flanagan, director of the forthcoming The History of the World as Told by Wonder Woman (we saw clips, it’s gonna be amazing!), Anita Sarkeesian, the woman behind Feminist Frequency (you may know her from Mad World and Tropes vs. Women), Leah Wilson, editor of Smart Pop Books, and moderated by Maile Martinez, programming director at Seattle’s venerable Reel Grrls! Thanks to everyone who came out to hear us, you were a wonderful audience! Oh, and here’s the link to that Strong Female Characters post by s.e. smith I mentioned, and the post Anita mentioned!
