Episode 30: Sexy Sexy Instagram

Direct Download

This week, we Skype-it-up all the way to Georgia to speak to teacher, writer, PhD student, and transmedia editor Alexandra Kingsley! We get cerebral about fandom/fandom platforms, boy band aesthetics, and the easily-forgotten history of internet fan culture. We also break down what's wrong with dissecting One Direction fan behavior on Tumblr, freak out about mens touching one another, and convince you to play the very dangerous Badland Girls drinking game.  

Spoiler Alerts for the Following:
Iron Man (both movies)
MTV's Teen Wolf    

Corrections: The Gael Garcia Bernal/Diego Luna soccer movie where they're brothers is called Rudo y Cursi. What was tumblr for? The correct title of the Jon Stewart book of humorous essays was called Naked Pictures of Famous People.
