Pop culture has a lot to say about life, social justice, ethics, and the way we view the world. Compiled of essays on TV, movies, video games, and anime, this book asks questions like: How do you respond to grief when it threatens to eat you up? (Pro tip: not like Sam and Dean in Supernatural). How do the cylons in Battlestar Galactica inform our humanity? What does Mario Kart have to say about death? How do fairy tales impact our culture's understanding of disability?

Challenge yourself with these thought experiments or use the bite-sized articles in the book as discussion points with other pop culture aficionados like yourself.
