Andor • S1 E8
In our latest episode, we have the distinct pleasure of welcoming Prof. Matthew Wilhelm Kapell to unpack Andor Episode 8 with Paul and me. Prepare for a thought-provoking session where we tackle anthropological perspectives of the characters, delve into the essence of rebellion, and muse over what Lenin might make of the series. And yes, we’ll even engage in some friendly debate – though, rest assured, our points of contention are minor.
Prof. Kapell brings a wealth of knowledge from an eclectic academic background, having taught subjects ranging from human genetics to film studies in institutions across California, Michigan, the UK, and currently, New York City at Pace University. He is also at the helm of an academic book series that explores the realms of digital and tabletop games.
For a glimpse into his extensive work and publications, visit matthewkapell.com. Prof. Kapell consistently reminds us that for every “Hero’s Journey,” there is a “Heroine’s Ordeal” to consider.
