90. 📚Nostalgia 101: Going to Nerd School w/ Dr. Jen Sopchockchai Bankard
Dan & Manny are joined by Dr. Jen Sopchockchai Bankard, Associate Professor at USC & creator of the blog The Long Take. Jen takes Dan & Manny on a very nerdy journey in and out of the many Marvel franchises, and the ever-expanding Star Wars universe, she talks about her growing blog, fandom, her nerd coming-of-age, and so so much more. In fact, Manny couldn't stop talking even after we wrapped, so make sure you listen to the whole episode.
Jen Sopchockchai Bankard is an Associate Professor of Writing at the University of Southern California and has been a pop culture nerd ever since wearing out VHS tapes of the original Star Wars trilogy as a kid. In addition to The Nostalgia Test, she has been a guest on The Rebel Base Card Podcast, The ColbyCast, The Wampa’s Lair Podcast, and Coffee With Kenobi.
