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.

This week we talk about why we need anti-heroes as we explore Frank Castle, The Punisher. We talk about his history, his trauma and why chaotic good is sometimes the only way to counter chaotic evil. We cover why he's important in the Marvel universe, in the world of anti-heroes, and why veterans and active duty military connect with Frank and use his symbol. We take through his trauma, so that you can understand the violence in his world. Sometimes we need a soldier, not a Superhero.
