Ep 83: The Butcher of Paris
Did you know the Butcher of Paris is a real serial killer? And that he did some hella f*cked up stuff during World War II, specifically during the Nazi occupation of Paris? Dude was definitely a monster who barely needed an excuse to engage in his messed up acts. The most riveting part of his psychosis was that he had convinced himself he was a “hero” fighting for liberation, when he was actually harming the most vulnerable Parisians of the time - Jewish Citizens. This graphic novel summary of his crimes provides pretty solid, non-speculative documentation of his dealings. Check it out!

Such a fun podcast
These ladies say they are masters of mediocrity but I disagree for one they talk about creators i may have over looked or not even heard of. Add on the fact that you can tell they are just having a fun time and with infectious laughter this is definitely a podcast I will subscribe too! 5/5
Best Comic Book Podcast
Girls Talk Comics offers a warm, welcoming, and informative environment. Hosts Jessica and Erin dip into a variety of topics, and mischievously venture into whatever wild offshoots those topics spark. Comic books are their bliss, and they use them to consider larger ideas and themes. Whether they’re spotlighting a specific artist or interviewing a creator, Girls Talk Comics brings a unique perspective to each episode, and it’s a perspective that’s much needed inside the comic book podcast space.
These Wonder Women are super!
I’m not a huge comic reader, but I love all things “super hero”. Gotta say, these ladies do a killer job breaking down comic books and discussing the themes, backgrounds, issues, and more going on in the issues they analyze.
Crisp, clear audio, and a good pacing makes for a nice listen!
