This week we welcome back Swara Salih from the Beltway Banthas podcast as we discuss the importance of the CWverse. The CW started a DC TV universe that has expanded across 4 shows: Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, and Supergirl, as well comics and animated web-series. We start the conversation by getting out our biases, talking about the series and characters that we love, the ones we hate, and the ones that fall in both categories. Adrian breaks down the shows into their IMDB synopses and then we get straight to the But Why Thos, starting with Women in the CWverse and how they’re good, bad, and really bad – according to Kate. Part 1 of 2.
