Why are sitcoms like Small Wonder so haunting to some of us? My guest, Bridget McGovern, a writer and managing editor at sci-fi/fantasy site tor.com, sheds some light on this subject and many others as we delve into the pop cultural universe, sharing stories about coming of age during an era of often strange, sometimes inspiring, always memorable cultural production. From The Golden Girls and Designing Women to Jim Jarmusch and Game of Thrones, Bridget and I talk about pop culture's particular impact on identity, its power to build communities, and its uncanny ability to make us keep the lights on.
