We’re bringing you a little bit shorter episode this week, mainly because we recorded it after midnight in Indiana and Taylor had to work the next day. For Episode 4, we dove a little bit deeper into just one topic this week: Wonder Woman. Lucas talked about his experience seeing the movie and how good it was in comparison to the rest of the DC cinematic universe.
We also talked about how films like Wonder Woman and Star Wars The Force Awakens have created what we hope will be a growing trend of strong leading women for all of us—and girls especially—to look up to. And finally we discuss the fascinating physics of just how strong Wonder Woman would have to be to stop bullets with her gauntlets of submission. Enjoy!
