Episode #76: Freaks (1932)

Was this episode supposed to be up before Halloween? Yep! To say October was a horrible month for me would be an understatement and this delayed episode is the result. But I'm committed to making November better (and on-time!).
 
Drea, Sam, and I get down and dirty talking about disability and how Tod Browning's career was derailed by his desire to make this movie, Freaks.
