Tone Didactic #109 - the end of the Tropes

Kim Poole (Warp'd Space), Beverly Poole, Shelbi McIntyre and I talk about negative female tropes in fiction.  Why?  to see how to fix them, to raise awareness, to argue about what "negative" or "feminine" really mean - all of the above.

Mostly, we figure the issue is that if writers don't realize they are propagating negative stereotypes, they can't improve/change/make informed decisions.

This is a three - parter!!! Yes, we can talk a lot!

I apologize for being off mike so bad - my hubris insisted my loud loud voice would carry....  {NOTE:  for this one, I ran it through another filter to improve the sound and volume a bit}

:)

Oh, and this is where the initial set of videos that we are using as a jumping off point for our discussion appear.

So now I've cleaned and re-loaded parts 1 and 2.  Don't jump out and re-download them just yet and screw up my count, but be aware that they have been ... altered.  Clarified a bit, perhaps.

For everyone who subscribes through itunes and stuff - I am having the designations of the different categories on this feed altered. 

Turns out that, since they have spaces in the names, they don't sort properly all the time, for people who wanted one show but not all the shows. 

So... you may have to update your indivudual subscriptions (if you subscribe to individual feeds) once this is completely worked through.

April, and Scriptfrenzy, are looming on the horizon.  For 19 Nocturne, that means Guest Producer Month, where I showcase episodes that I wrote, but other people put together (just like the two shorts - "Karma" and "The Archway Room" - that played at Halloween).

Equally as important, this gives me time to write.  And write....  and write.

In honor of this, I am taking challenges.  I'm looking for some distinct horror/sci fi/fantasy subgenre (preferably one I haven't done yet) to try cutting my teeth on.  Nothing specific (like Star Trek or Dr. Who), but a type of movie (like "severed body part horror" or "someone deliberately being made to believe they're crazy" films).

I wil truly endeavor to take on the first THREE challenges I get emailed to the show email.  19nocturne<aaaaat>live<(youknowtherest=)dot-com>

Let's see what we come up with!
