Take some time this week to remember your original happy hour: Saturday mornings as a kid, waking up at dawn, jumping on the couch with a bowl of chocolate cereal, turning on the ‘toons, tuning out the outside world, and working your way into a sugar hangover before noon. This morning we wonder what some people have against fangirls, we talk to our old friend Dr. Travis Langley, PhD (author of Batman and Psychology, A Dark and Stormy Knight), and - drumroll please - we finally share the entire uncut Lee Meriwether (Miss America 1955, the original silverscreen Catwoman, and a long celebrated career of film, TV, and stage) interview!

Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Elektra, Catwoman, there is no shortage of female comic book characters. Yet Hollywood has failed to give them the movies they deserve. Join us on the Half Hour of Power with special guest Landon as we discuss the female superhero movie dilemma, why they fail and how to fix them.
About a decade ago I read a book with interviews with comic writers all giving tips on writing. One tip has stuck with me over the years.
Devin Grayson best known for her runs on Catwoman, Black Widow and Titans had an idea about catering the music she listened to while working to the individual project and sometimes even the individual character. This can have great benefits both actively during work as well as when you're just in a "writing" state of mind.
