Darren and David step aside this week for a discussion on the role and portrayal of women and gender in the Stargate universe. Joining David (who acts as moderator) are two of our favorite guests from podcasts of yore — Louisa Robison and Tame Farrar. We’ll talk about everything from how much (or how little) the women characters have been fleshed out, men showing emotion, to SGU‘s lesbian relationship.
Is Sam Carter faultless? Are Vala and Sam two sides of the same coin? How do Drs. Fraiser and Keller compare? And does Stargate‘s all-male writing team need a woman to better capture the voice of women? We’ll look at all these questions and more in one of our most challenging discussions in 80 episodes of the GateWorld Podcast.
And we’ll hear from listeners on the voicemail line! If you still want to voice your opinions on this important topic, call now and we’ll fit in more on next week’s show.
