HBO and Sesame Street. And Comic Books?! - Episode #31
Somebody has to pay for people to make entertainment. If it's not the consumer, then it's the creator, advertising or other funding sources. Today we're talking about how it's not "selling out" if the alternative is to go off the air or out of print. We equate the recent HBO deal with Sesame Street with comic books and how Marvel and DC have aligned themselves with major corporations to ensure their survival! We also discuss the "Fair Page Rates" and talk about Thom's near brush with The Real World -- this is the true story!
