I’ve had the great pleasure this summer of appearing on a few podcasts to talk about my work. Interested in hearing me talk about some of the things that get me excited?
The Brainspace Optimized Podcast with Hailey Thomas
I had the privilege of working with Hailey earlier this year on her TedX talk, and I loved this chance to delve further into my coaching processes with her. Our conversation ranged over the most common mistakes I see speakers make, how I balance my university teaching, my research, and my consulting, and even my guilty-pleasure summer reading.
Truelove’s Show with Joshua Truelove
I met Josh, a history PhD student at Boston College, earlier this year in Washington, D.C. for the annual conference of the Pop Culture Association/American Culture Association. We talk here about our mutual love for comics and superheroes, as well as my ongoing research into the cynical presentation of utopia-as-apocalypse in superhero/supernatural narratives. There’s also a sneak peek of my upcoming book, and my thoughts on the Game of Thrones series finale!

I love doing these appearances! It’s a great chance to bring academic work to a non-typical audience, and I hope to do more podcasting soon.
