  • HBO and Sesame Street. And Comic Books?! - Episode #31

We equate the recent HBO deal with Sesame Street with comic books and how Marvel and DC have aligned themselves with major corporations to ensure their survival! We also discuss the "Fair Page Rates" and talk about Thom's near brush with The Real World -- this is the true story! Music: Dan O / Epidemic Sound
