Comment on Stephen Colbert by bryanjack

Hi Nathan,

Excellent choice! I have the utmost respect for the feat of satirical theater that Colbert has spun for the last decade, as well as its origins on Jon Stewart’s Daily Show. Between the two of them, Stewart and Colbert have left an indelible mark on American (political) culture, and I wonder: how do you feel Stephen’s contribution differs from the one Stewart made? (Upon his retirement from the Daily Show a few months back, some even credited Stewart with having created the political consciousness of the millennial generation.) What draws you to Colbert, as a comedian and satirist? What do you think his legacy will be?

Thanks for the post,

Mr. J

Comment on EMINENT INTRO POST (I’m so sorry I’m really bad at coming up with witty blog post titles) by bryanjack

This is stellar, Nazlie! I love your choice and this narrated introduction to your personal approach to eminent this year. You’re quite right, there are many things one can learn from this project, but when you describe feeling “kind of strange […] because I felt like I could’ve said the same things, and it was nice to know that there were other persian girls out there that felt totally distant as well,” I think you’re hitting something powerful at the heart of this kind of study.

I’m looking forward to seeing how this learning comes together for you in the next little while!

Mr. J
