Playback Reblog: The Boob Tube

It’s been a LONG time, friends! I hope to make some time to fire up Pop Mitzvah again this upcoming summer, once my first year as a PhD student is over and I have some extra emotional room to blog.

But for now, it is my tasty supreme pleasure to share a short piece I wrote for another outlet – the newly revived Antenna blog at U.W. Madison, now called Playback. As one of the managing editors, I’ll be helping with our editorial calendar and hopefully some podcasts and video essays down the line – but first, a post of my own! Click and enjoy my response to¬†The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, and more broadly, the way streaming television has extended a conversation about breast exposure and its textual significance across auteurs, producers, marketers, and audiences:

The Boob Tube: Visions of Female Nudity on and Beyond The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

Thanks and here’s hoping for a joyous return here soon.
