About

The Heroine’s Journey is a podcast that will highlight women’s stories and female characters in pop culture, including books, TV, film, comics, video games, and more.

The goal: to broaden awareness of positive, interesting and complex portrayals of women in fiction, and of creators who are doing it right.

Published every Tuesday, each episode will be roughly 45-60 minutes in length, featuring LC Brown (that’s me!) and at least one co-host. In addition, most Fridays I’ll also feature some sort of “bonus content”, such as interviews, radio essays, fan music, and more.

    Hello LC,

    I’ve never written to a podcast before, but I felt the need to write in and praise you on the new show! I heard about it through Gamers With Jobs and was just so excited for a female-centric highlighted women’s works, and I was not disappointed! I was hoping to suggest something you might be interested in, if you haven’t heard of it before. I’m a lover of all-ages children’s comics, and recently came across Lumberjanes, a story written and drawn by women about five young girls at a summer camp, and includes a blossoming lesbian relationship, a genuinely fun action story, and even mixtape suggestions published by each of the characters at the end of the first few issues. It’s just over a year old, so you may be aware of it; I was surprised I hadn’t heard of it earlier when I found it. It’s fantastic, and I’m hoping to possibly write about a rising feminine influence in non-mainstream comic books for my Master’s dissertation, so I was interested on what Heroine’s Journey might have to say about it if you felt so inclined to read it.

    Anyway, good luck on the show, I look forward to hearing to more episodes!
