Show Notes

It's been a year since the first cases of COVID-19 popped up and the world has been non-stop anxiety ever since. In a slightly different sort of JoAG, we're taking a minute to just unload our anxieties and talk through them. The #JoAGjourney is therapy, spooky friends. 
 
Highlights: 
  • Mark misses his mom, which leads him to a horror genre: Momcore
  • Eileen gives us more mouse cannibal facts
  • We have an Instagram! Follow @jackofallgravespod
  • What the fuck do we do with all this anxiety??
  • Climate change inactivism and disaster movies (and social class in the apocalypse)
  • Can we be saved from media illiteracy?
  • The main event: Coronavirus anxiety

Have another 2020 anxiety we didn't mention? Hit us up on the tweety about it and we'll bring it up next week! @jackofallgraves
