Thanks for your podcast. I am enjoying all of the episodes. I especially appreciate your conversation on the importance of simultaneously being able to critique and enjoy cultural artifacts and your validation of different interpretations of relationships discussed in fandom. Very cool.

Thanks! It’s one of those things we have to hammer home to ourselves as well – when thinking about all the ways media can hurt people, it can be difficult to remember that it’s okay to enjoy things as well, and if people enjoy a thing differently than you do, that’s okay too.

Still, I’ll fight any nihilist interpretations of Over the Garden Wall. (Kidding. Really. I’m a big fluffy marshmallow and can’t fight anyone.)
