  1. Popaganda: When People Become Internet Memes

    The Internet, which connects us to each other in ways that were pretty unimaginable to most people a century ago, has become a totally casual part of daily life. It’s changed so much: from the way we do business to the way we unlock our front doors. But it’s also changed the way we see ourselves and our relationships to other people. We live in a time when even children are able to use social media to juggle a front-facing, personal brand with their imperfect, true selves; and when a small gaffe could bring the rage of hundreds of thousands of strangers into your life.

    So Soleil wanted to take a step back and ask, how did things get this way? And does the Internet have to be like this? First, you’ll hear from Dr. Alice Marwick, an expert on social media and online privacy, on what happens when a person becomes a meme. Then you’ll hear from Helen Rosner, the food reporter for the New Yorker, on how getting really into Internet humor and irony as a teen colored the way she connects with people now. We hope you enjoy the show!

  3. Episode 15 - X-Men (2000)

    The Mutant Ages delve into a live-action adaptation for the first time, and they also have their very first guest: Mary Ellen from Let’s Watch 2 Movies, the other podcast that Maddy co-hosts at Atomic Blue Productions! Welcome, LW2M fans, to a show that discusses queer subtext in the X-Men and also tries to turn that subtext into text at every turn.

    We hope you all enjoy this visitation of Maddy and Ryan’s teenage years, including a rundown of all the WAV files Maddy had of voice lines from this movie, the mall food court where Ryan first saw the X-Men movie trailer, and Mary Ellen feigning interest in Marvel minutiae. If you enjoy this episode, consider listening to Let’s Watch 2 Movies (soundcloud.com/letswatchtwomovies).

  4. Evil Plans

    he evil plan has become a meta-joke where even the villains can’t help but comment on all the tropes. But we keep wanting to see stories centered around evil plans, or at least stopping them, so they must serve a purpose. I talk with Honest Trailers head writer Spencer Gilbert and Vulture.com writer Abraham Riesman about why super villains shouldn’t try so hard to be evil geniuses, and how the best evil plans make us wonder if we’d do the same thing in the villain’s situation.

  5. DECOMPRESSED : DECOMPRESSED 006: MARK WAID AND MATT FRACTION ON THE MARVEL METHOD

    Instead of a specific issue, we’re talking to Mark Waid and Matt Fraction about the pros and cons of working in the Marvel Method method of scripting. Which is… oh, we’ll explain it all. It does make sense. I promise you. I only very rarely lie to you.

    Study aid and script malarkies here. Particularly extensive this week.
