As co-host of NPR’s popular “Pop Culture Happy Hour” podcast, Aisha Harris has made a name for herself as someone you can turn to for an engaging and incisive take on whatever new show or book or movie everyone is talking about. In her lively essay collection, “Wannabe,”she turns her analytical talents inward, reflecting on the culture that raised her into the person and thinker she is today. In essays that span the personal and political, the high-brow and low, she contrasts the formative touchstones of her 90s childhood with both iconic precursors and more recent sensations to analyze the various tropes that have shaped her heart and mind.
