Interviews and conversations with nerds, artists, and theologians

Apr 2, 2018

     The Rev. Dr. Margaret Aymer Oget joins me to talk about Marvel Studios' film, "Black Panther."  She is the First Presbyterian Church, Shreveport, D. Thomason Professor of New Testament Studies at Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary and an active speaker and lecturer.  We discuss many issues that intersect in the movie: genre, fantasy, science-fiction, race, feminism, liberation, and yes, even theology.  We also discuss the dangers of allowing the success of up-and-coming directors like Ryan Coogler and Ava DuVernay to lead to tokenism.
