In a statement sent to AIPT, Ryan North said one of the best parts of this project was working on a new medium. “Of course, once we started recording, my favorite part was hearing the actors bring those characters to life. Milana and Crystal are Doreen and Nancy, and the way Leo, Davied, and Peter brought those characters to life. Koi Boi, Chipmunk Hunk and Brain Drain was simply outstanding.

North added, “The podcast continues where the comics left off, so longtime fans will instantly feel at home, but it’s also designed for new people who may have never encountered the world of the unbeatable Squirrel Girl before.”
