While I’m not watching much PBS TV these days, though I have friends who love them some Dowager Countess, the PBS web series Idea Channel is awesome. Host Mike Rugnetta explores a question rooted in both academia and today’s pop culture. So, it’s like reading a college student’s Media Studies paper, only entertaining and not horrible. Here are 5 episodes of Idea Channel:
Are Bronies Changing the Definition of Masculinity?
So… friendship is masculinity?
Is Nic Cage the Intersection of YOLO and Taoism?
Shooting dudes while having sex. #yolo #win #hashtags4eva
Is Twitter the Newest Form of Literature?
Maybe my last comment will win me a Pulitzer.
Is Super Mario Brothers the World’s Greatest Piece of Surrealist Art?
If it’s good enough for IAM8BIT…
Is Dubstep Avant Garde Musical Genius?
I WUB this theory.
