For those of you who don't know me, hi. I'm Mike. I'm currently in the final stages of finishing up a Master's in Museum Studies (my capstone project is happening this fall and I should have my degree in the spring).

I'm a Senior Editor at We Are The Mutants, a site dedicated to "Cold War-era popular and outsider culture, with a strong emphasis on speculative (sci-fi, fantasy, horror), genre, pulp, cult, occult, subculture, and anti-establishment media."

And I'm here because Twitter was objectively making me into a worse person. Given that I'll likely cut down a bit on the "current events" style politics here, you should expect more Weird and occult stuff, leftist theory and academic close reads, and generally a much more positive (and ironically more Content-heavy) presence.

@MuseumMichael I love your work! Is there an official mastodon for the site? I was following the Twitter account

@chikadee Thanks! No plans to migrate/duplicate accounts over here yet, but I'll chat about it with my co-editors!
