Disney+’s Ms. Marvel is earning rave reviews and allowing a whole new segment of Marvel fandom to see their stories represented. Siya Patel has shared her passion for Marvel stories here at FANgirl Blog. When she asked about learning about podcasting, Ms. Marvel seemed to be the perfect opportunity. Hence, the Night Light podcast was born.
On the first episode, Tricia Barr and Siya Patel explore the question of identity found in Kamala Khan’s journey and discuss what it’s like for Siya to see a South Asian become a superhero. The themes of religion, high school, family dynamics and generational trauma cut across boundaries, making Ms. Marvel a universal coming-of-age story that is relatable to many.
