New Episode of ‘Serious Fun’ Offers Critical and Psychological Insight Into The Popular ‘WandaVision’ Series
“Serious Fun” celebrates 40 episodes on the Phoenix Studios podcast network this week with an in-depth discussion about the Disney+ streaming sensation “WandaVision”. Prof. Bryan Carr (Communication, Information Science) welcomes two special guests on to talk about the first proper Marvel Studios streaming TV show – the Director of Oregon State’s General Psychology program and former UWGB faculty Prof. Regan Gurung as well as UWGB undergrad and Serious Fun research and production assistant Emily Fecteau. The trio discuss the psychology of the series and how we consume streaming media, how its use of old sitcoms as a framing device is more clever than you might think, and whether grief or love is the driving force beyond the strange events in WestView, NJ. And for the record: there are spoilers aplenty, so make sure you’re caught up first!
