New “Serious Fun” podcast with Prof. Bryan Carr
“Serious Fun,” the Phoenix Studios podcast featuring UW-Green Bay Associate Prof. Bryan Carr (Communication, Information Science) that examines the media that shapes and reflects our lives, makes a triumphant return for a new season with the first part of a countdown to Comic-Con. With a plethora of new games, movies and comics coming out this fall, Spider-Mania is alive and well — but what is it about Spider-Man that makes him endure, and why do we care about him as much as we do? University of Colorado Boulder Associate Prof. J. Richard Stevens (Media Studies) sits down with Carr to talk about the character, his enduring faith in humanity, his origins as a borderline horror character and why we love this spider-guy so much. Listen to the new episode.
