Sam Morris

Co-Host of Monkey Off My Backlog

Sam Morris (he/him) is Monkey's resident Gen Xer. He is an assistant professor of English, specializing in young adult literature and secondary English education. Sam writes primarily about music (mostly pop), television, and movies. Elsewhere, he has written about John Green, Harry Potter, and The Hunger Games; Hayley Williams as the anti-manic pixie dream girl; and Pearl Jam as utopian philosophers.

Here, he is your source for all things Taylor Swift, Keanu Reeves, Friday Night Lights, and all manner of pop culture trivia. (But not LOST…it’s still too soon.) He may not remember what he had for dinner last night, but he can tell you some obscure fact from an album’s liner notes that he read thirty years ago.

Sam Morris has hosted 194 Episodes.
