Pop Everything Episode 7: Calvin and Hobbes is NOT The Wire

This week on Pop Everything, Tim responds to critics that complain that he seems to hate everything by talking about something he loves: the comic strip Calvin and Hobbes. Of course, he kind of talks about it in a cranky way, imploring fellow fans to respect the wishes of the strip's creator and just let the work speak for itself. We discuss a recent book and documentary about the strip made by fans who seemingly miss the point, and compare Calvin and Hobbes fans to that jerk at the office that tells you that you NEED to watch The Wire because it will like, totally change your life. Also, Tom feels burned by a Kickstarter project he donated to and threatens to smack the sourpuss right off Tim's face.
