Scientific Podcast Goes Boink, Episode 137: The False Empowerment Match

Our good friend Danielle Matheson stops by to talk about wrestling fandom, specifically women's wrestling and being a wrestling fan who happens to be a woman.

This week, Pete and Bill are joined by America's greatest Canadian, Danielle Matheson of With Spandex! Danielle talks to us about what it's like to be a woman who is into pro wrestling, as well as the problems with women's pro wrestling in general. Spoilers: turns out it's all very tricky! We blame the patriarchy.
