Episode 22 – Nerds & Pop Culture
In this episode, the guys talk about nerd culture and pop culture and how the acceptance of certain aspects of nerd culture show us and teach us about culture in general and how it’s changing. Walking through a variety of different nerd cultures like comic books, Pokemon, Star Wars vs Star Trek, and even Harry Potter, the guys discuss how these changes have implications in youth ministry and theology, and how as students of culture, youth works can take advantage of the “nerd culture” aspects of our popular culture among teenagers.
We would love your feedback, input, or questions for future episodes.
