Castle Talk – Lucy Chaplin: Science Starlet Creator Drew Edwards on Science Superheroes and Twitter Trolls

We talk to Halloween Man creator Drew Edwards on his new special from Sugar Skull Media, Lucy Chaplin: Science Starlet, and about creating a new heroine who has garnered surprising attention.

Lucy Chaplin is a hero in a long tradition of science polymaths who can do anything, a la Reed Richards. The new special includes an amazing backup feature that purports to be an interview with the science starlet — complete with photos. We talk about heroes, body issues, Twitter tough guys, "Lucy Chaplin" model and musician Jamie Bahr, and Lindy West's conversation with her own trolls.
