The Virtual Memories Show

I nerd out with author, English professor, and hardcore comics reader Jonathan W. Gray. We talk about how Blackness is represented in American comics (the subject of his next book), how Alan Moore's Swamp Thing changed his life, and how he was teaching comics when there weren't a lot of college courses on comics. We get into the perils and perks of academia, what it's like teaching at John Jay College of Criminal Justice and protesting against police violence, the influence of Kyle Baker's Nat Turner & John Lewis' March on his work, the horrifying question of whether we're actually in the best timeline right now, and plenty more.
