Joining me this week is special guest star Donovan Grant of The Next Dimension: A Dragonball Z Podcast and The Batman Universe, to talk about the Kelley Puckett and Damion Scott run on Batgirl, exploring themes of feminism, racism, and violence.
This episode was recorded on 3/8/15, which was International Women’s Day! (I did not know this at the time of the recording)
This podcast contains spoilers for: Batgirl (Gordon, Cain, Brown), The Dark Knight Rises, 22 Jump Street

Once upon a time, I believe this was gonna be the theme for a proposed sequel podcast to Dreck Fiction. But it was probably just that thing you fool around with when first opening GarageBand (MixCraft, in my case)
If you have any feedback for this special episode, shoot me an email — this will only be the first episode with Donovan, and maybe I’ll reach out to other guests in future editions, ambassadors for arenas in the mediascape whose expertise is much broader than mine.
