Alisa Stern loved Doctor Who so much that she created her own original content using stop motion animation — the BBC loved it so much that they aired it on their channel. Matthew Cox wrote a play about a “certain school of magic and wizardry” from the POV of a boy wizard who was sorted into the less than brave “Puffs” house — it is still pleasing audiences off-Broadway years after the predicted short run. Along with pop- culture enthusiast Clive Young and up and coming author Matthew Klapper we chat about the history and cultural impact that fan fiction has had on the media we consume.
