While I love book clubs, I don’t always have the time to keep up with the reading in between my lesson plans and textbooks for the classes I teach; not to mention parenting, making dinner, laundry, dishes, and well…adulting. 


My guess is I’m not alone. Hence the birth of “Media Mixers,” an opportunity for a monthly gathering where we can dive into the latest pop culture to unearth life lessons.

Live Zoom Meetings
The First Sunday of the Month | 11am EST

Pop Culture is about people and how we relate to one another. Media Mixers are a great way to better understand ourselves, each other, and how to break down divides. 


Each meeting will focus on a television show, movie, song, TED Talk, music video, etc. with the goals of:


  • Discussing some of our favorite topics to further self-development;

  • Meeting new people and finding connections;

  • Becoming more socially aware; and

  • Bridging the divides between us.    


Register for the sessions you want to participate in and you will receive a link for the zoom session and a reminder message one day before hand.

Media Mixers are free and open to all.


Feel free to send an email to info@ginamessina.com to make suggestions for upcoming sessions.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
