Jen Malkowski is an assistant professor of Film and Media Studies at Smith College with a specialization in death and dying in media and you can read more about them at smith.edu/academics/faculty/jennifer-malkowski! Jen is also the author of Dying in Full Detail which can be accessed for free here.
Mackenzie MacDade is a 31 year old, queer woman of color, teaching artist, feminist, part time poet and general rabble rouser. She got her start in feminism from a book of feminist nursery rhymes, and her start in pop culture analysis from 9 years of homeschooling (translation: 9 years of TV and movie watching). A firm believer in queering the collective consciousness, she strives to inspire people to redesign their idea of normal and step out their comfort zone. She takes inspiration from Gertrude Stein, Buffy, Angela Davis, Faith and bell hooks. Someone once described her as “The love child of Angela Davis and Ru-Paul” and she thinks that just about sums it up.
LaToya Ferguson is our new host for Season 3's Angel On Top HELL YEAH! She also writes for The AV Club and Paste Magazine as well as The Guardian, Entertainment Weekly, Variety, IndieWire, and more. You can follow LaToya at @lafergs on Twitter and you should also *immediately* tune into her podcast about The Vampire Diaries (YEAH THAT’S RIGHT) called The AMPire Diaries over at theampirediariespod.com
