Episode #17 Benjamin Apple and Nicole Drespel / The Goon # 36-39 (2011-2012)

Everything discussed in this episode was way too heavy to be discussed past 11 PM, but the Fearless Foursome — Matt, Brett, Nicole, and Benjamin Apple — did just that. If you’ve been waiting to hear comic book fans and comedians discuss the objectification of women in burlesque, the government’s role in labor unions, nature versus nurture, and intellectual property rights, then this is the show for you!

Also: Nicole takes the listeners on a guided tour of all the things that have made Brett cry.

All of the above, of course, stem from this week’s comic book pick: The Goon #36-39, by Eric Powell.

Issues of The Goon can be purchased digitally on The Dark Horse Comics digital store. You can view the trailer for The Goon animated feature on YouTube here.

Benjamin Apple is a writer for the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre sketch team Onassis, who won the 2011 FriSC competition. He’s also a headline contributor for The Onion and appeared in an episode of Gossip Girl.
