Elijah is a PhD candidate in classical archaeology at the University of Texas at Austin, currently writing her dissertation on ancient famine. She has excavated across the world, from the US, the Netherlands, Sicily, and most recently, Romania. Currently, she is watching too many zombie movies, and spreading the good word that Chris Evans peaked in Scott Pilgrim vs the World.
Prior to voicing his opinions on decades-old movies into the void, Colin received his PhD in Classics from the University of Texas at Austin. He now teaches Latin and mythology, in the Department of Modern Languages & Classics at the University of Alabama. He primarily writes about Greek and Latin literature, namely its whacky, whacky stories about animals. Besides that, he’s an avid film nerd with some serious existential hangups over the Cars franchise and a deep distrust of Waluigi.
As a kid, Christie watched a Jack Russell terrier named Wishbone shoot an arrow through twelve axe heads, and so began a lifelong love of Greek mythology. Her Ph.D. from the University of Iowa says Anthropology, but she considers herself an ancient Mediterranean archaeologist with a special interest in ancient women’s lives. Christie teaches ancient history and archaeology at the University of Lynchburg and does excavation work in Sicily. Her dirty secret is that she has only seen one film from the Indiana Jones franchise. It was the one with Shia LaBeouf.
