A new YouTube channel, Geek University, examines popular fandoms and provides academic insight into their story. The channel delivers three episodes each week on the following topics:

2) A video delving into the real-world history of the franchise. (Friday)
3) A video explaining the lore/story of the franchise. (Saturday)
From now until the end of April 2016, the channel will focus on Star Wars. Topics include Ring Theory, mythology, The Force Awakens and WWII, the science of superweapons, and much more.
Potential franchises for future discussion include Marvel Comics, DC Comics, Lord of the Rings, Halo, Assassin’s Creed, Doctor Who, and Star Trek, among others.
