25: The Tentacles of the Tyrant! (with Margaret Pride)

A really fun (and odd) one this week: Retired U.S. diplomat Margaret Pride joins Douglas to discuss the Doctor Doom stories in Astonishing Tales #6-7… or, rather, to touch on them rather briefly, and then discuss how the relationship between Victor Von Doom and T’Challa is and is not like the relationship between Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un, how exactly diplomatic immunity works in practice (and the biggest crime Doom would be able to get away with thanks to it), and what popular culture gets right and wrong about the U.S. Foreign Service in general.
