ABOUT POP HUMANITIES
The Humanities are essentially all the various forms of art that our civilization uses to express its, well, humanity. The traditional forms are literature, theater, film, dance and music.
That sounds really boring when it's put like that, right?
What if I told you that pop culture – that Batman comic you just read on a recommendation, that video game you just got 100 percent on, the latest episodes of "Game of Thrones" and "Westworld" and even the newest Marvel and Star Wars movies – IS our culture? Geek culture it everywhere now. It has become mainstream. It is our mythology, and it is part of what gives us our humanity.
With Pop Humanities, we invite you to come on a ride. We'll have all kinds of fun with reviews, previews, essays and podcasts. We'll keep you up to date with all the latest geek news, but hopefully you'll learn about why these stories matter and discuss pop culture in a way you never before thought possible. Who knows? Maybe you'll learn a little about yourself along the way.
