Marvel's Jessica Jones is the newest comic character to be adapted from comics to a live action series on Netflix. After a tragic ending to her short-lived Super Hero stint, Jessica is rebuilding her personal life & career as a private detective in Hell’s Kitchen. It’s time the world knew her name…
In the first episode of the show Jones is hired to find a pretty NYU student who's vanished, but it turns out to be more than a simple missing persons case.
Hosts Brett & Elana will discuss each episode one by one with special guests joining in. For this episode they'll be joined by Sarah Jaffe & Steven Attewell.
Jaffe is a reporting fellow at the Nation Institute & a giant nerd who once upon a time wrote about comics more than she wrote about politics, believe it or not, and she has lots of feelings about superhero movies AND their politics. She is working on her first book which is about social movements since the financial crisis & will be released next August from Nation Books. Follow her on Twitter.
Attewell is a political & union activist. He got his PhD in Policy History from the University of California, Santa Barbara & teaches public policy at CUNY's Murphy Institute for Labor Studies. His essays have appeared in Esquire, Salon & two books on the subject. He co-hosts the Game of Thrones Podcast & is the founder & writer of Race for the Iron Throne.
