Celebrity Culture and Fandom

Let’s dive into the discourse surrounding celebrities, specifically examining the public’s fascination with them. We ponder whether current trials should affect our perceptions of films like Aquaman 2. We also explore the strong reactions generated by Kathleen Kennedy within certain segments of the Star Wars fandom and consider the influence of misogyny, racism, and other societal issues on the stories crafted about celebrities in these fan communities. Paul and I discuss these topics, as well as the experience of revisiting our episodes from five years ago featured in the Poker & Podcasts series on YouTube.
