Chosen Ones with Rebecca Rose Vassey
This week, Rebecca Rose Vassey joins Matthew for a discussion of the Chosen One trope in superhero media.
Does a hero need to be chosen? Who gets to choose and who gets to accept or reject being chosen?
We’ve started the conversation. Now we want to hear from you!
Want to continue the discussion with us? Agree or disagree with what we talked about, or add your thoughts? We’ve got options for you!
In honor of the late Sheldon Menery, we ask: What is Rule Zero – his philosophy that any game should start from a place of shared expectations – and what can it teach us about building community?
Caged Bishop Cosplay joins me to talk about his experience as a blerd (black nerd), intersectionality in fandom, and our shared love as masculine folks for Barbie.
