This afternoon Tom Guarriello and I shot the breeze about the Shel Israel puppet story. Sorry, no shownotes for this one. We covered a fair bit of ground: what comic influences do we see here; is the British take on this kind of satire more indulgent; is there a line to be drawn between comedy and bullying; is there a slope and is it slippery. Tom contributes some great cultural context to the backstory.
In the end I think I’m mostly laughing and Tom’s laughing quite a lot and also feeling a bit queasy. I could well be mistaken. Enjoy.
