Lee and Daniel let their freaks off the leash this week as they cover Tod Browning's "Freaks" from 1932. Some of the topics brought up: is the film a horror film?; does it exploit the actual freaks who performed in the film?; who are the real freaks?; the background of some of the performers; early anti-eugenic stances just before the Nazis came to power in Germany; how this film ruined Tod Browning's career; and if a remake would be possible. Also, Lee uses the soundboard software he bought and plays a live .mp3 listener comment. The hosts respond to other listener comments and talk about what they have watched as of late. Get your freak on!
