About Trope Watchers

Mia and Scott are culture scholars teaching and researching in the University of Sydney and beyond. They host two pop culture podcasts:

Trope Watchers: the podcast about pop culture and why it matters. Each episode we tackle a different topic and case study with expert guests and find new ways to be critical of the pop culture we love.

A Clash of Critics: your scholarly podcast about Game of Thrones and A Song of Ice and Fire. Join us for deep critical analysis of every episode and every book of George R. R. Martin's epic series.
