What happens when a psychology-loving Literature teacher and a fun-loving sci-fi geek get together to talk about traditional “hero vs. villain" archetypes?  Pure magic.  On this episode of TCP, Michelle applies Carl Jung’s idea of “the ego” and “the shadow” to Star Wars, discovering that it’s more than just a movie about Ewoks… While The Captain contemplates the benefits of embracing “The Dark Side.”
