Call for Essays About Any Aspect of Popular Culture, Present or Past

Jenn Misko

Jenn Misko works as a music promoter for a living, running her own small college radio promotion company called The Band Mom in Brooklyn, NY. She graduated with a film studies minor from Wake Forest University in 2007 (studying with noted critic and scholar Peter Brunette), and has been fastidiously maintaining a Netflix queue ever since. She’s written about music before for such sites as The Tripwire (now part of The Fader), but her film criticism odyssey begins here at PopMatters.
