The Heroine’s Journey is a weekly podcast by women, for women, about women. Each week, LC Brown and a rotating cast of guest hosts shine a spotlight on the lady-driven stories they love.
“Episode #4: The Works of N.K. Jemisin”
This week, LC Brown is joined by Tanya DePass of #I Need Diverse Games to dig into the books of sci fi/fantasy author N.K. Jemisin, including:
- Women of color as the heroes and drivers of their own stories
- Everyone wants to be Tolkien, and why that’s a bad thing
- Why we compare Jemisin to the best fanfic you’ve ever read
- Mixed heritage as a major element of The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms
Plus: Tanya’s Inquisitor problem, Dragon Age: The Last Flight, Adrienne Shaw’s Gaming at the Edge, female knights, Tamora Pierce’s Song of the Lioness, Game of Thrones and your emails!
