Nerd Culture is Political
Marvel, Overwatch, and Rachel Maddow
Back in the day The Rachel Maddow Show had a pop culture segment called “Just Enough”. The segment would touch on movies, beauty pageants, celebrity news, zombies, etc. If Maddow were to bring that back today, there would be two big changes. First off, a lot of that pop culture news would land well within the sphere of “nerd culture”. Second, a lot of that would tie directly back to politics.
