Join us as we take a look at Philip Pullman’s The Golden Compass! We’re talking a little about Milton, a little about religion, and a whole lot about the process of learning.
Missy watches a bad movie, Merri reads good books, and we are both baffled by the college admissions scandal.
Join us as we take a look at the Borderlands series, exploring its roots in urban fantasy, Celtic fairy stories, and the concepts of heterotopias!
Missy watches some garbage, Merri does not. That’s the WWBUT way.
We’re talking about Rebels’ function in the larger Star Wars franchise and how this series was the proving ground for some of the Disney era’s best elements.
Anti-rom-coms, terrible video game rip-offs, and a discussion about how people respond to female characters in fantasy fiction—exactly what you expect from us.
We’re talking about Midsommar, the 2019 film about trauma, Swedish folk traditions, and the horrors of white supremacy!
We’ve got witches. We’ve got cowboys. We’ve got a lengthy discussion of what it means to be famous. It’s time for WWBUT 47!
We’re talking about Hades—the harmony of story and mechanics, the usefulness of sexy character designs, and whether being ahistorical matters.
Sometimes we watch things that are good. Sometimes they’re just okay. And sometimes things are utterly baffling but we them enjoy anyway.
