May 10th, 2020
Mike is again joined by Tony Farina; creator & host of Indie Comics Spotlight, the Assistant Professor of Humanities at Siena Heights University, reviewer of comics & audiobooks and early adopter of online education - Mike’s girlfriend (& occasional co-host) Megan also joins the conversation!
In this week (part 2) of the chat, the trio discuss how Megan & Mike and Tony & his partner have been handling the COVID lockdown, they also talk about passing down interests to children, they speak about the younger generation & how there are few films that all generations have seen, they then have a fairly lengthy discussion on Star Wars, how “back in the day” before music streaming the trio would make their own CDs/mixtapes, Megan’s lockdown birthday, cancelled events, theatre and more!
In case you missed it, part 1 of their chat was out last week, where Mike, Tony & Megan talk about Tony teaching online university, how the US & UK’s respective educational systems have responded to the COVID crisis differently, which leads onto a discussion on language including how English itself is such a difficult language to learn. Regional dialects, the Spanish Flu and more topics are also discussed!
In case you missed episode 87, Mike had his girlfriend Megan Gritti on to talk about video games she’s been getting into while on lockdown (including Animal Crossing), as well as talking about video games from each of their childhoods, such as the Pokémon games & their spin-offs, mario & mario party, Sims, games for the N64, board games like Monopoly and more!
