Disability Representation in Sci-Fi and Fantasy: A Conversation with AK Maiden
Bionic arms, hearing so good it makes up for a loss of eyesight – AK Maiden is back to talk with me about disability representation in the stories we love.
A big-time nerd, big-time philosopher, and big-time lover of all things sci-fi and fantasy, AK Maiden is a 21-year-old with a philosophy degree and a focus on disability studies and rhetoric. She creates D&D art and content about a wide variety of nerdy topics on TikTok.
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!
Dr. Lynn Zubernis & Dr. Matthew Snyder join Matthew to analyze The Boys’ complex villains, toxic masculinity, and why fans forgive problematic male characters more than female ones.
For our last hiatus episode, we’re bringing back our coverage of that Christmas classic — Batman Returns.
Another blast from the past during the hiatus. Enjoy this conversation with Paul, Riki, and myself, and stay tuned for new episodes, starting in December!
