Podcast: The Ironically Iconic Wonder Woman

Episode #8


Look for us on iTunes, ShoutEngine or the Internet Archive, where you can also directly download an art-tagged MP3.



This episode, Frank offers a rebuttal to Brigit McCone's "Unpopular Opinions" week article for the site B**** Flicks, which took the character of Wonder Woman to task for the "revolutionary banalities" of her "male-authored feminism," especially within the context of the 1970s TV show.

We don't have a Magic Sphere, so if you want to communicate with us about the podcast...

Respect Frank! You could easily have torn this unpopular opinion to shreds, but you used it as a platform to convey some very well articulated observations about everything from the character, relevant eras and human nature.

The fixation on what the Wonder Woman TV show didn't tackle is just plain weird. You may as well criticise the Brady Bunch for not giving an accurate view on divorce and puberty.

By the end of the ep, I was standing on my desk and shouting "Captain, my captain" for you.
