Bookbabble Episode 56: Cultural Imperialism and Adam West

Recorded 7 Dec 2009
Babblers: Bjorn, Renee, Donny

Synopsis:

This is one weird, psychedelic episode.  We all came out of this one wondering what had happened.  How is this episode any different from the previous episodes, then, you may ask?  Well, among the stuff we covered: 70s/80s American TV series, Twilight/New Moon, how soon till the next Harry Potter-like phenomenon, export of popular culture from US and what Sweden and Malaysia thought of it in the early 80s, King’s Under the Dome, why Pride and Prejudice and Zombies isn’t as bad as it sounds.  Also, when Bjorn is hungry, he likes BRAAAAAAAAINS.

Note: The book Donny was trying to remember when he brought up the Jane Austen mashups was Mansfield Park and Mummies.
