Hungry? Have some Grit!

As a belated nod to International Women’s Day (March 8), this edition of the podcast is all about young, strong – heroic, even – ladies.

If you can get past the awkward/misguided attempt to make a gag out of confusing heroine with heroin – oh, the hilarity of homophones! – there’s some good discussion here on why True Grit‘s self-possessed heroine Mattie Ross succeeds at being awesome when she could have been frustrating, and whether or not The Hunger Games‘ Katniss Everdeen is bad ass enough to star in her own True Grit sequel.
