Sarah Duncan, a Pop Culture Scholar, Multidisciplinary Artist & Cultural Worker, is here in conversation with Kristin & Alba — we are talking about the harmful mental health tropes found in Buffy's Normal Again, how common they are across pop culture, and how harmful and dangerous those tropes have been and continue to be!
Kristin & Jenny will be here with your episodic conversation on S6E17: Normal Again tomorrow!
July is Disability Pride Month!
Please, if you are able, donate to Students With Psychosis — an organization that empowers student leaders globally through community building and collaboration.
