Weird Comics History Podcast Ep. 3 - The Kefauver Hearings (The Comics Code Authority Part 3)

Chris (@AceComics) and Reggie (@reggiereggie) get to the meat and cheese of their five-part look at the Comics Code Authority: 1954's Senate Hearings on Juvenile Delinquency, starring Senator Estes Kefauver! They look at increasing anti-comics public sentiment and the exact comic book that served as the tipping point and legitimized federal investigation. Then, they take you through all three days of the hearings, talking about each witness and their testimonies, while interjecting the usual silly commentary.
