BGWC Podcast Episode 4: "Shooting Webs"

This week Sweary Laree brings it down from a hard 'R' to a solid 'PG-13.'

Topics include: Jim's childhood love for Spider-man, the best and worst Spider-man toys from the 1970's, Spidey Super Stories on the Electric Company, Spider-man cartoons, Spider-man live action TV shows in Japan and the USA, sexy Spider-man, Marvel Comics and more.

Yep, this episode is mostly about Spider-man, but somehow Laree still manages to steer things over to Conan the Barbarian.
