God and Comics

In this episode, the crew discusses how violence has evolved in comics and pop culture over the years. When is violence necessary to tell a story? When is it gratuitous? How should followers of Jesus think about such things? The answers to these questions will be revealed, along with a childhood trauma for Fr. Jonathan involving the circus and a goat. All this plus our recommendation, This or That, and a whole lot more.
