About Breaking the Glass Slipper

Every other Thursday, Pop Verse releases a new episode of Breaking the Glass Slipper, our original podcast on women in science fiction, fantasy, and horror. Hosts Megan Leigh, Charlotte Bond, and Lucy Hounsom discuss books, TV, film, comics, and more from the perspective of writers, readers/viewers, and those in the industry. We want to see more female writers, gender balance in SFFH narratives, and the eradication of casual sexism in the genres we love most. Join us in the conversation.

Breaking the Glass Slipper is available on Soundcloud, iTunes, Stitcher, TuneIn, and via RSS feed.
