EPISODE 52 – AGP Star Wars Special with Christina Blanch

Episode Notes: On today’s episode of AGP we continue our celebration of Star Wars. Joining me tonight is probably one of the few people in this Galaxy that can give me a run for biggest Star Wars fan Christy Blanch! Christy Blanch is an educator, a comics scholar, a comic book store owner, and a comic book author. She began teaching college level Anthropology classes both in the university and in the correctional education system (aka prison). Taking her love of comic books into the classroom, she is currently finishing her doctorate and teaching subjects, such as gender, using comic books as the textbooks. She is teaching a massive open online course called Social Issues through Comics Books, a free course on canvas.net. She is co-owner of Aw Yeah Comics in Muncie, Indiana and co-writes the comic The Damnation of Charlie Wormwood on which highlights her experiences teaching in prison, and has moderated a panel with Princess Leia herself Carrie Fisher. So please join us tonight as we discuss our favorite Star Wars movies, games, memories, and so much more.
