Join Joe Raiola, senior editor of MAD Magazine, as he sheds light on the endless arguments over banned books, movie ratings, the FCC, Supreme Court decisions, religious freedom and the true meaning of obscenity. He also traces the unlikely and colorful history of MAD Magazine, from renegade publisher Williams Gaines’ historic showdown with the United States Senate over comic book censorship to MAD’s emergence as a revolutionary and influential satiric force. The program concludes with a unique slide presentation spotlighting many of MAD’s most controversial and outrageous covers and articles, followed by a lively Q+A session. This program is co-sponsored by Regulator Bookshop and Motorco Music Hall and is for adult audiences.
