#345: War of the Worlds

We discuss the historic 1938 broadcast of War of the Worlds, what it means historically, why we associate it with Halloween, what it tells us about our society, and how our view of the radio show’s aftermath is affected by shifts in digital media. Also, we run down the week in geek, including the fan furor over Robocop’s exposed hand, our take on the new Halo 4 trailer and Lincoln flick, and some thoughts regarding Batman #13’s Villains of Nerd Culture and Scalzi’s July response.
