Call for Comments: So Everyone Is into Multiverses Now?

From Mav: So, we’ve talked on the show before about this weird cultural moment we live in where suddenly all culture is geek culture.

Call For Comments: The Star Wars and the End of a Modern Epic

From Mav: Well, here we are. We’re one week away from a day that once seemed completely impossible. The “end” of the Star Wars. Or at least the end of the Star Wars as we know them. This should be a pop culture event if ever there was one, so obviously it’s the kind of…
