There are a few BSG podcasts out there, but I'm most excited about this one. This is one of the few sci-fi shows I love, and one of the reasons is the many powerful women in it. I love that Jules and Ella are coming at this show with the goal of supporting women in sci-fi and fantasy. I'm looking forward to getting to know both of these women and how their experiences inform their perspective of BSG (and Boomer, my favorite character)!
So say we all- absolutely!
This is a clever, insightful podcast by storydames Ella and Jules or Jules and Ella. Their perspectives on characters, plot lines and themes is spot on and offer an in-depth analysis with a side of fun. Ladies, you are awesome. I burned through all available episodes in one week. More, please.
This podcast is so amazing I love that two women are hosting: Ella and Jules or Jules and Ella. Their perspectives on the episodes are on point. Keep up the great work!
