Seeing The World Through Kamala Khan’s Eyes (Podcast)

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 second episode, Tricia Barr and Siya Patel discuss Aamir’s wedding and Kamala Khan’s journey to Pakistan. Siya Patel shares insights into the South Asian culture that are revealed in the episodes “Destined” (Episode 3) and “Seeing Red” (Episode 4). The themes of self discovery, family dynamics and generational trauma cut across boundaries, making Ms. Marvel a universal coming-of-age story that is relatable to many.
