    Pandemic puppies, West coast COVID, and How binge watching can help with writing!

    This week we're joined by Vicky Johnson, Film and Media Professor at University of California, Irvine. We chat about how COVID is impacting academia on the west coast, her new Pandemic Puppy (Finley), and how binge-watching shows we've already seen can help with writing. Seriously! As always, laughter is encouraged and reality is discussed on the Pandemic Professors!

    The Importance of Understanding Time Travel and Law in Science Fiction while Being Awesome on Twitter

    This week, we chat with Chip Stewart, a professor at the Bob Schieffer College of Communication at Texas Christian University.

Join us as we discuss portrayals of law in science fiction, how time travel impacts copyright law, and the general craziness of academia during a pandemic.

    Digital choirs, Learning Tai Chi, and the History of Bananas

    Digital choirs, Learning Tai Chi, and the History of Bananas

    In this week's episode, we discuss things that we are enjoying or trying to learn during the pandemic. The list is LONG, but somehow, in 30 minutes we cover the hope of seeing jobs posted, the book Caste by Isabel Wilkerson, learning the Ukulele (and singing Dolly Parton songs), Tai Chi and Tae Kwon Do, participating in digital choirs, and the history of bananas. Have we completely lost our minds by episode 30, or are we just finding sanity in the chaos?? You be the judge! As always, laughter is encouraged and reality is discussed on the Pandemic Professors!
