Prof. Matthew Kapell joins Paul and I to talk Andor, episode 8. We get into light topics like anthropological readings of the characters, the nature of rebellion, & what Lenin would think of the show. We even find a few things to quibble about! (though they are very small quibbles).
Matthew Wilhelm Kapell has taught everything from human genetics to film studies at universities and colleges in California, Michigan, the UK, and now New York City at Pace University. Currently he edits an academic book series on the study of digital and tabletop games. You can find out about his books and other stuff at matthewkapell.com. He never forgets that too many “Hero’s Journeys” are also “Heroine’s Ordeals.”
