Writing

I came of age in church basements and on the internet; I’ve reflexively rejected some pop culture and uncritically consumed a lot more. Now, after years studying history, playing video games (for fun), reading theology (also for fun), and becoming a freelance journalist, I think I have a few words to share — good ones, I hope.

Podcast


Stranger Things, metaphysics and the 
wonderful weirdness of being alive

Stranger Still is an attempt to make sense of the layered experience that is Netflix’s hit show, Stranger Things. The show is an homage, but also something new. It’s seemingly nostalgic for another time, yet timeless all the same. It’s weird and exciting and more than a little wonderful. Childlike without avoiding complexity and compassionately hopeful.

In the Stranger Still podcast, we’ll nerd out over the references and the memes, but more importantly, we’ll take the series seriously. Works of imagination are serious business precisely because they’re unreal. Fantastic stories shake us out of the mundane and make us more human. Stranger Still will ask questions about the things we can’t see and can’t ignore, so prepare yourself: things are going to get metaphysical!
