Welcome to our first Metapsychosis mixtape! A "mixtape" is an evolving collection of media on a particular subject or theme, curated in the spirit of sharing things we love.
We're happy to share the beginnings of our first mixtape on the acclaimed Netflix series Stranger Things. Enjoy!
REALITY IS ANALOG
Philosophizing with Stranger Things
In this deep-delving exploration of some of the prominent (and not so prominent) themes of Stranger Things, J.F. Martel argues that the hit Netflix series casts a haunting shadow over our times, restoring the strangeness of an analog world that the codes, algorithms, and interfaces of the digital age have all but rendered obsolete.
The Electric Symposium
The Stranger Things Episode: Talking Analog Weirdness
In this kickoff episode of The Electric Symposium I am joined by author and Metapsychosis contributor J.F. Martel, as well as Metapsy editors Natalie Bantz and Marco V Morelli. Together we talk about J.F.'s latest essay, "Reality is Analog," our curious fascination with the "lifeworld" of 80s analog, and the Metapsy team's various theories behind the pop cultural Netflix sensation, "Stranger Things." Pop in the tape and press play.
