I’ve decided to start a periodic blog series on pop culture for sheltered homeschoolers and other people who grew up under a fundamentalist rock. It’s going to be an ongoing feature where I cover parts of pop culture that a lot of people who grew up in American fundamentalism missed out on.
I’ll put up my first installment in a day or so, but until then, I’d like to hear from you about what areas of pop culture you would like to see me write about. Reblog or inbox me to give your ideas or suggestions. I’m looking for guest bloggers too, so if there’s an area of pop culture that you’d love to break down for readers who missed out completely, let me know. I could definitely use some guest posts about cartoons from the ‘90s and ‘00s because that was past my time.
One of the things I’m wanting to do with this feature is to contextualize modern pop culture with its earlier pop culture roots. I’m also planning to put earlier stuff into the historical context to give an idea of how people at the time would have experienced it.
I’m super excited about this project and I hope you will be too.
