If you're into issues of women and film, you'll probably want to subscribe to this still fairly new podcast from Movies by Women - but even if you're not, you might want to swing by and pick up the latest episode, 15, about the early women of Hollywood. (Note - the blog is out of date, but there's a link to the iTunes spot where you can download each episode.) Author Cari Beauchamp has some wonderful stories to tell about some of Hollywood's earliest writers and directors, who, amazingly enough, were women. It's strange to think that women were actually more powerful in film during the first couple decades of the twentieth century than they are now in the first decade of the twenty-first. But their stories are fascinating.
