Amy is a PhD student studying German literature and culture. She spent the past several years in Germany and misses the mean German attitude she cultivated there. She likes murder (…in crime fiction) and lipstick.
Kate is a PhD student studying German film. She became a pop culture obsessive at an early age, likely due to being raised by a father with highbrow film and literary tastes, and a mother who can recall every episode of The Brady Bunch in detail. She aspires to be 70s-era Peggy Olson but would settle for being season one Liz Lemon.
Marianne is a PhD student studying English and film. Before returning to academia, she worked in entertainment journalism. She tries to see every movie in theaters and is going through a big Zeppelin phase lately. Pro-manbuns, anti-mansplaining.
