    Graphic Policy Radio with Guest Spencer Ackerman

    in Pop Culture

    Graphic Policy is back with a brand new episode with special guest, and award winning journalist Spencer Ackerman.


    Comics have often featured torture as a method for the heroes to extract information or get them to their goal. We most recently saw this in Marvel and Netflix's Daredevil, where torture is a key point in advancing the hero's plot. We'll discuss torture in comics, and its place in the modern stories and the world.


    Spencer Ackerman is the U.S. national security editor of the Guardian, where he was part of the team that won the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service Journalism for the NSA surveillance revelations provided by whistleblower Edward Snowden. A former senior writer for Wired, Ackerman won the 2012 National Magazine Award for Digital Reporting for his series about Islamophobia in FBI counterterrorism training. Having reported from Iraq, Afghanistan, Guantanamo Bay and numerous ships, bases and a submarine, Ackerman in 2015 exposed a secretive incommunicado police detention center in Chicago called Homan Square. A Brooklyn NY native, his mother taught him to read with Bill Mantlo's Incredible Hulk run.

From Vhs rental's to the weekly family trip to "the show" Film was ingrained into Michael's character. It wasn't until his father showed him the first "Back to The Future" film that Michael knew he would dedicate his life to the art of film. 


    Teeming with imagination, Michael was never short of ideas. Always creating short stories, daydreaming and filling his head with the many narratives of 90's. As time passed and his interest grew his parents encouraged him to seek out classes and workshops that would help him perfect his craft. After graduating both High School and a Production workshop in the same year Michael went on to Columbia College Chicago where he completed his Bachelor of Fine Arts in Film and Video in spring 2005. As Staff Director of Puissant Productions, Michael brings his creative enthusiasm and energy to the team.
