A Wretched Episode of Scum and Villainy

Villains in fiction tend to fit a certain template: erudite, aristocratic, queer-coded, monologuing and vaguely British. There’s nothing wrong with that, but it gets a little old after a while. So for this episode, we’re going to take a look at some real-life villains, from globe-striding corporate monsters to small-time petty jerks, and see how fiction measures up. Joining us is Kelton of Psychic Dolphin Garage and Garbage In Garbage Out.
