about heather | heather mclendon.
I write on such things as: television, pop culture, digital media, progressive politics, equality and assorted geekery. My favorite characters are complex women that challenge stereotypes and sexism found within media, and I’m a hardcore advocate for better, more authentic representation of gender, race and sexuality in film and television — onscreen and off.
I co-host and produce the podcast This Is Pop.
I post an absurd number of photos of my dog on Instagram. I am working on a novel about magic and science and myth. I have a husband named Joe, who is a professor of anthropology. (Imagine our dinner conversations.)
I enjoy swearing and sarcasm. I will choose sci-fi over comedy — and any other genre tbh. I have a penchant for high-rise denim and comic books. And I’m still on a quest to find Back to the Future high-tops.
