We're an almost weekly podcast that looks at nerd culture, focusing mostly on cartoons, comic book films, and horror movies, and more. We're just starting our 4th year and are excited to have moved to PodBean.
The Boys season one is the topic of this episode. We're joined by Chris Thames of Christopher Case Photography and we go through the plot of the series. Frank does some comparison with the comics as they go, and points out some of the many differences. They then talk about the themes: The idea of the self of the brand. Don't meet your heroes, including some celebrity encounters in the past. Using the admiration of individuals as a means of influence. There's a lot to unpack here, and we even come close to covering everything we'd like to.
