We have a bonus episode this week! With the help of Lizzy, from Pilots and Petards, and Ash, from the Safari Zone Podcast and Skyhoppers, we sat down to talk with Jeremy Whitley, writer of Marvel's  The Unstoppable Wasp, to talk about everything Wasp. We talk about the representation of mental health in comics, all the work that goes into creating an authentic voice for such a diverse cast of young women around Nadia Pym, how he wanted to respect Janet van Dyne with this legacy character, and more! If you've been wanting to learn more about all that goes into writing The Unstoppable Wasp, take a listen now!
