On this episode of The Feminist Romantic, Cara McKinnon responds to the Washington Post PostEverything article "We Need to Talk About Princess Leia, PhD" (Link: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/posteverything/wp/2017/08/07/we-need-to-talk-about-princess-leia-phd/?utm_term=.1cc47921c59a)
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 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 firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment on my blog at thefeministromantic.com.
