The four quirky anti-heroes who starred in one of the most defining television shows of the ’90s take centre stage in this episode of Campion Conversations.
What is Seinfeld actually about? Is it a show about nothing, as it meta-textually suggests in Season 4? Are the characters simply just high-functioning sociopaths? And does the humour still hold up 20 years on?
Hear what we thought, with three special guests: literature lecturer Dr Stephen McInerney, history lecturer Dr Steve Chavura and philosophy lecturer Dr Amitavo Islam.
Ever wondered how Marvel movies relate to Nietzsche? Or what Netflix might have to do with existentialism? Campion Conversations is the official podcast of Campion College Australia and the place to hear our academics discuss pop culture and, occasionally, current affairs in light of the humanities.
