Ep 22 - Der Fuehrer's Face

[Content advisory - some profanity, discussion of wartime caricature, plus we say "nazi" a lot]
Time for a history lesson! The year is 1942 and Disney has released its super-famous but also rarely-seen-since political farce, "Der Fuehrer's Face", starring Donald Duck! We'll discuss the historical significance of wartime film production for Disney, this cartoon in particular, and a little bit about the pop cultural landscape of a country gone to war.
But that's not all! We've also got funny voices, puns, and plenty of other stuff which we'll discuss off-podcast, in the future, maybe?
