Hey there, 26 year old TV junkie, podcaster, and aspiring screenwriter here. I graduated from Connecticut College with a degree in Film Studies and I love watching TV almost as much as I love criticizing it. My favorite shows include Buffy, The 100, Doctor Who, LOST, Jessica Jones, Breaking Bad, and so many more. Podcasting has been a passion of mine for over 7 years and I've covered a wide variety of (what I'd consider) guilty pleasure TV. This includes everything from Glee to MTV's Scream, to Girl Meets World. I love diving deep into a show, dissecting its storytelling, and commenting on the social and representational messages it provides. Currently, I reside in the Greater Boston area where I do freelance video editing for numerous companies. I've made several short films and I'm currently converting my basement into a mini studio so that I can build a YouTube channel. In my free time I design amateur video games using the Unity Game Engine and go to comedy shows with my wonderful girlfriend.

  1. I just listened to your last podcast and as an archaeology major, who has studied both Roman and Egyptian history and mythology, I have a little correction: Rome had god kings, the emperors where worshipped as gods, there are temples for them and all that came with it. You can definitely compare the emperor cult in Rome to the Egyptian Pharaoh cult (I can’t say anything about China, since I don’t know enough about the subject). Actually, I would say it was heightened in Rome since the Pharaoh was usually seen as a vessel for a god, not necessarily as a god himself.
    In Rome it started out with the emperors claiming to be descendants of gods, but they were quickly turned into actual gods in their mythology.

    I hope you don’t mind the correction, but my inner history nerd kind of needed to get that out. 😉 Maybe it will help with future analysis.
