Paul C. Tumey & David Farrier

January 17, 2021

For the first half of the 20th Century, several comic artists drew madcap, crazy strips, and series. These artists included  Rube Goldberg, George Herriman, and E.C. Segar, the creator of Popeye. Tonight on Inquiry we talk with comics historian PAUL C. TUMEY about his hilarious new history: SCREWBALL! THE CARTOONISTS WHO MADE THE FUNNIES FUNNY.


Tonight on Inquiry we talk with DAVID FARRIER who teaches English Literature at the University of Edinburgh. In recent years he has become interested in what will be left of 21st Century human culture one million years from now. Will remnants of our great cities survive? How about our millions of miles of paved roads? Tune in tonight as we talk about his thought-provoking new book: FOOTPRINTS: IN SEARCH OF FUTURE FOSSILS.
