From Magneto to Monica Geller, Felicity Smoak to Susan Ivanova, Jewish representation has had a spotty record in TV, film, comics, and beyond. Join the hosts of the Nice Jewish Fangirls podcast (Tamar Herman, SM Rosenberg, and Michal Schick) as they discuss the ups and (occasionally hilarious) downs in Jewish representation, and answer questions like, “Should Jewish actors play Jewish superheroes?”, "What stories get Jewish representation right?" and, maybe most importantly, “Seriously, is Wonder Woman Jewish?"
