Dr. Richard Scott Nokes, professor of Medieval Literature at Troy University. In this interview we discuss his Professor Awesome persona, and how his intellectual outreach to connect his academic work to the general public lead to much bigger things. He shares his experience with science, fantasy, comic, and gaming conventions. We touch on his latest project Pop Medieval, a podcast he hosts along with a former student. That leads into the topic of his new book From A to Zombie, and the philosophical problems of Zombies. And, about halfway through the interview there is special presentation from Dr. Nokes to me. Make sure to listen to the very end when he gives us his holiday viewing recommendations.
You can find him at profawesome.com and on YouTube, Twitter and Instagram as @rsnokes. I’ll provide links to these in the show notes.
