From Wendy Burns-Ardolino, Ph.D. professor & recurring guest
A colleague of mine sent me a link promoting your work. I am a feminist media studies scholar, and my book, TV Female Foursomes and Their Fans, has just been published by McFarland (link to the book description is in my signature below), and I would love to talk more with you about your podcast. Please email if you are interested in talking more. I am very happy to know that you are out there finding significance in past strong women characters on television - Sisterhood and Solidarity is the title of the last chapter of my book!
FROM ELIZABETH IN NY
Thank you! I just listened to 2 episodes of the podcast on my commute this morning & LOVE IT. Can't wait for the other episodes!
FROM MARCY IN MINNESOTA RE: HILL STREET BLUES
The show was on when I was in law school. Veronica Hamel’s character had a major influence on many of us. She was attractive, professional, witty, in control. This was one of the first times I recall seeing an older woman who was seriously attractive and sensual. Hamel I think served as the role model for later attorneys on shows like Law and Order. Where the idea of female lawyers who dressed as tarts came from, I have no idea.
