Episode 4 – Princess Leia, PhD

Episode 4 Show Art Widescreen

I know this week was supposed to be about romance series, but I have a cold that won’t go away and I lost my voice. I had just enough voice today to record a short podcast responding to the news that Princess Leia is actually Dr. Organa.

I’m specifically responding to the Washington Post PostEverything article “We Need to Talk About Princess Leia, PhD.”

For fun, here is a link to a MarySue.com page gathering some reaction tweets to the news that Leia has a PhD: https://www.themarysue.com/doctor-leia-organa/

Apologies for the sound quality this episode, and all of the flubs, sniffs, coughs, and awkward pauses while I tried not to cough. Normally, I would edit and re-record, but my voice was really failing by the end of even fifteen minutes, so I left them in this time.

For the next episode, I really will be talking about series romances–contrasting series that follow a single romantic couple with those that take place in the same world but follow a different couple in each book. If you have any series to recommend, especially ones that follow the same couple, email me at thefeministromantic@gmail.com or leave a comment here on the blog.

So what do you think about Dr. Organa? Let me know in the comments!
