Episode 17: BLACKSAD
by Juan Diaz Canales & Juanjo Guarnido
This book sparked conversation about plenty of 1950s social issues. The crew discussed race relations, the Red Scare and even the Hayes Code which sanitized many of the films this book was inspired by. It is a truly incredible series, and you really should be reading it.
The intro song is, "I'm Just a Lucky So and So" by Ella Fitzgerald.
