The Ladies Podcast – Fictional Teens and Their Fictional Murders

The latest episode of the Ladies of Comicazi Podcast is here! This month, we discuss Creepy Teen Books, a staple of our childhood reading. Join us as we talk about some of our favorites, what made the genre so popular, and why it seems to have fallen out of favor.

Want to learn more? Check out some of the books and authors we talked about:

 The Dollhouse Murders – Elise’s childhood favorite

I Know What You Did Last Summer – a classic of the genre by Lois Duncan and the basis for the movie

Killing Mr. Griffin – Another well remembered Lois Duncan thriller

Seven Christopher Pike Books that would make Spooktacular Movies

Goosebumps  and Fear Street author R.L. Stine

The Encyclopedia Brown series

Key to the Treasure is actually the first book in the Liza, Bill, and Jed Mysteries. Clues in the Woods is the second.

The Ladies Podcast – It’s All About Love

The Ladies Podcast is back with a brand new episode! This month, we’re taking on love – with a twist. We’re sharing a few of the things that we love to hate – favorite ranting topics – or hate to love – the guilty pleasures.

Smalerie discusses the musical version of The Phantom of the Opera and its less than stellar sequel.

Cartoon Sara dishes on the much loathed episode of the original Star Trek that she can’t help but enjoy.

If I know anything about our readers, it’s that as soon Labor Day has passed and a slight chill hits the air, it’s time to get ready for Halloween.

Cartoon Sara Listens to Three Podcasts: Faith in Humanity Edition

LoC Podcast, episode 1: Mildred Louis on magical girls, creating independently, and diversity

Agents of the Realm, copyright Mildred Louis.

This week I’m excited to introduce our first Ladies of Comicazi podcast!

In what I hope will be the first of many, our inaugural podcast is an interview with the incomparable and astoundingly talented Mildred Louis, author and artist of the web comic Agents of the Realm. (Feel free to check out The Red Menace’s review of Mildred’s first collected volume of Agents!)

So join us as we discuss animation, geek out over Sailor Moon, and imagine how hard it must be to have to save the world on a regular basis.

(You can catch Mildred in person at the Massachusetts Independent Comics Expo, October 29-30, 2016 in Cambridge.)

A special thanks goes out to Aayesha Siddiqui  for producing, recording, and mixing this podcast. An additional thanks goes out to Canopy City for once again providing us the space to conduct our latest shenanigans.
