It's so strange! Because I am FAR from an expert or even knowledgeable about Jewish life, and yet they were impressed that I knew what Passover was and about sitting shiva. I could hardly explain "Well you see Munch had to recite the kaddish in an episode of Homicide".

But it's true, fandom also helped with the voracious absorption of details regarding characters with lives I had no experience with. My parents did wonder why I was suddenly obsessed with the Latin@ experience in East LA as a teenager and never suspected it was because I was writing Angelo from Gen X, heh.
