THE FANDOM ZONE 015: "The Ones We Leave Behind" is Up!
"People seek the truth no matter where they find it."
"That may have been the case when you and I were young. This world around us is preoccupied with celebrity weddings and videos of cats. But complicated issues, issues that matter? They take too much focus. They take too much time away from texting and the thousand channels on the satellite dish."
"Guess I have more faith in humanity."
"Ah. So did Christ, if I recall."
-- Ben Urich and Wilson Fisk, Daredevil: "The Ones We Leave Behind"
You guessed it, Karen Lindsay and I are back with another new episode of The Fandom Zone Podcast!
