Weird Comics History Podcast Ep 1: Before the Comics Code

  1. Don't take this the wrong way because I say it 99% joking... I zoned out for a bit and all of a sudden I'm hearing about pills and needles and neuroscience...what the fuck are you talking about?!?!

    1. Haha we got really deep into Wertham's backstory for a little while there...and also geeked out on medical advancements for some reason. Next episode is much more about comics of the era, and some less congratulatory stuff about Wertham!

      Thanks a ton for listening though.

    2. Haha it's all good, I enjoyed it. It was just a weird thing to suddenly be listening to when you forget what it is.
