Star Wars: The Psychology of Heroes and Villains Dr Travis Langley delves into the resonances of "Star Wars" in geek life and real life

Star Wars Psychology

This week, Summer talks with Dr Travis Langley, psychology professor at Henderson State University and aficionado of the connections between pop culture and psychology. His earlier books include “Batman and Psychology: A Dark and Stormy Knight”, and “Walking Dead Psychology: Psych of the Living Dead”, but his newest collection is “Star Wars Psychology: Dark Side of the Mind”.

We talk about the connections people form with both heroes and villains, and how using the broad appeal of pop culture helps get more people interested in the psychological aspects of their favorite characters, and quite possibly in themselves as well.
