An Introduction


Who are we? What do we do? And what really happens at academic conferences during the tea breaks?

In this introductory episode, Chris, Jessica and Angus introduce themselves and their research interests, both academic and geeky. We discuss various cultural genres which reference the First World War, including detective fiction, Star Wars and death metal music, and ask why the First World War has particular popular cultural relevance.
