Who watches the Watchmen? We do! Join us as we discuss HBO’s latest masterpiece Watchmen, based on the Alan Moore comic book of the same name. This time around there are more masks, more squids, and more songs from Oklahoma! as the superhero story continues in a dystopic present day. Then, in a much scarier and more distant dystopia, we explore the insanely hilarious world of Gay Future, a narrative podcast based on an unreleased YA novel by Mike Pence that dares to ask the question “what will the gays do when they finally take over?”
If you fear for your children and want to avoid a superhero/super gay dystopia, may we suggest leaving us a review on Apple Podcasts? It’s the best way to avoid incurring our wrath.
