Power of You in Fiction 4: Spider-Man in the Mirror

Hey esteemed listeners and fans! Wilson and Lu are two-thirds of the way through their first full fledged special — Power of You in Fiction — and they’re here to bring you a story that’s a bit more close to home. A story of character identification, and the impact felt when we’re able to see a direct reflection of ourselves within a fictional character. For this episode, Lu and Niyey will be serving as our major players.

We hope you all enjoy this story and that you’re able to find your very own Spider-Man in the Mirror.

Power of You in Fiction 2: Like No Other (Part 2)

Hey esteemed listeners! It’s part two of Wilson and Lu’s second #POYIF episode titled Like No Other. This part still focuses on the othering experience, but with a twist…

What happens when you find that potential environment to express your quirks but you still aren’t allowed or accepted? What happens when you internalize the idea “who you are” is not the person that would enjoy x thing? How do you still embrace and express your passions? Our young hosts take aim at answering these questions in part two of Like No Other.
