Hey everyone!

If you're here, you may be familiar with our podcast already: Escape Into Fandom.

If not, allow us to explain: We are both film students who discuss any relevant entertainment within the media and popular culture and how the creators of said entertainment provide an escape for their audience.

This can be anything from a realistic and relatable character to an expansive, lived-in world.

Throughout each episode we discuss the piece of media we have decided to talk about, and answer three questions:

1: How did x help you, personally?

2: Who would benefit the most from x?

3: How does x provide an escape for its audience?

These three questions provide for more of an in-depth discussion regarding the concept of 'escapism', and how the relevant piece of entertainment utilizes it.
