Episode 37: Return of the pub
Hey listeners, guess what? It is the week you have been waiting for. Star Wars: The Force Awakens is out this week. Are you exited? You can bet your lightsaber that Mr. Tabor is. In honor of this momentous week, we return to our conversation at The Pub in Tampa with our good friend, Nick Parrucci. We continue our discussion of the commodification and commercialization of geek culture, what makes a “geek” or a “nerd” and how those definitions have changed over time, and get Nick’s long-time fan take on the new film, and what his hopes and fears are for the series going forward. It is a really fun conversation, and one that we had a blast doing.
Our thanks again to the fine folks at The Pub for putting up with us, including our fantastic server, Brittany. And a very special thanks to our special guest and voice of the listener, Nick.
Cheers, and thanks for listening. And enjoy the movie!
Jim and Shawn
