Episode 38: Who is She-Hulk (Jennifer Walters)?

Marvel/Disney just announced that She-Hulk will be getting her own show on Disney+.  But, who is She-Hulk, and what would such a show be about?  Kurt dives into the distaff counterpart of Bruce Banner, and what makes her so compelling a character in her own right.
