This week, host Isaac Butler talks to cartoonist and now TV showrunner Noelle Stevenson about the process of rebooting the ‘80s TV show She-Ra: Princess of Power as Netflix’s She-Ra and the Princesses of Power. In the interview, Noelle talks about developing a fresh vision for the show and ultimately creating one of the most diverse kids shows in history. She also discusses her webcomic, Nimona, which was adapted into a graphic novel and earned her a National Book Award nomination at the age of 23.
After the interview, Isaac and co-host June Thomas offer advice to a listener who wonders if focusing on their art, rather than working with vulnerable people, is too privileged a life choice.
In the exclusive Slate Plus segment, Noelle talks about The Weight of Them, a webcomic she created about her decision to get top surgery.
