The Worst of All Possible Worlds

Case studies in the pop culture of a dying empire

Welcome to the internet's first and only website.

The Worst of All Possible Worlds is a new media project by , , and . In our weekly podcast and definitely-not-weekly video essays, we deconstruct how the narrative and artistic choices of a given piece of pop culture reflect or subvert the broader decay of contemporary America.

Our mission: to figure out what's really going on in this Worst of All Possible Worlds and hopefully chart a course out of here.
