Welcome to But Why Tho? the podcast, where we talk about the parts of popular culture that people say matter and ask the question but why tho?

 

Kate, Adrian, and Matt answer this question with through passion, geekdom, history and even some scholarship.

It's October, so we're getting creepy, cooky, and all together ooky in our first spooky month episode topic: The Addams Family. With the new animated film hitting theaters this weekend, we thought it was time to visit America's favorite family and break down their long history from 1930s cartoon strips to 1990s cult classics, and that MC Hammer song for good measure. We also go into how the Addamses subvert familial expectations while also being one of the most loving and connected families on the screen. And we do this all with the help of Spooky Month guest, Alex Paterno.
