Law of the MCU
UPDATED: Mon, Jul 15, 04:41PM
Ten years of the Marvel Cinematic Universe has created a body of law big enough for Nowhere. Hear from this panel of judges and lawyers as they journey into legal tales to astonish of how Dr. Strange saved the world with contract law; whether Bucky committed treason as the Winter Soldier; and could Thanos be prosecuted as a war criminal for “The Snap”? A panel of true believers including U.S. Magistrate Judge Mitch Dembin, Megan Hitchcock (Esurance), Courtney McNulty (Sony Pictures Entertainment), Jordon Huppert (Public Defender in Oregon), Christine Peek (McManis Faulkner), and Joshua Gilliland (The Legal Geeks) will assemble to tackle these issues and more from the Marvel Universe.

35th Anniversary of Ghostbusters
UPDATED: Tue, Jul 16, 08:29PM
Over three decades ago, four men, the iconic Ecto-1, and the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man entered our lives. Since then, the proton pack is a constant cosplay want, and fans can’t help singing along to the classic theme song. The franchise spawned countless comics and animated series. Jessica Tseang (founder, Positive Pop Culture/Persisted Media Group) leads a fan appreciation discussion about the longevity of this franchise, and the deep love of the fandom.

Hollyweird Science: Aberrant Smartypants from Hannibal Lecter to Thanos
UPDATED: Fri, Jul 12, 04:59PM
The longstanding Hollywood trope of the crazy genius—from mad scientists to insane mathematicians—is a modern reimagining of the Faustian idea that knowledge of some universal truths comes at the price of sanity. Smart or highly accomplished people are frequently viewed as aberrant. Is it from a collective belief that nobody gets it all—that "God doesn't give with both hands"—and that gifts in one area must be compensated by a deficiency in others? Or is there a grain of truth embedded within? Exploiting this theme in a storytelling realm can be extremely useful. Take baddies like Hannibal Lecter, Killgrave, even Thanos: Isn't it far more terrifying when the evil scary monster . . . is a genius and can't be outsmarted? This panel of scientists and Hollywood professionals share their thoughts: Amy Berg (Counterpart, Eureka), Ashley E. Miller (Lore, Black Sails), Robert J. Sawyer (FlashForward, The Oppenheimer Alternative), Andrea Letamendi, ph.D. (Necessary Evil: Super-Villains of DC Comics, Justice League vs. the Fatal Five), Jessica Cail, ph.D. (Luke Cage, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), and Kevin Grazier, ph.D. (Gravity, Another Life). Moderated by Jenna Busch (Cocktails with Stan, Psych Geeks).
