Why did the Podcast Cross the Road?: Eco-comedy with Robin L. Murray and Joseph K. Heumann

The laughs are aplenty in this episode, which highlights the recent book by Robin L. Murray and Joseph K. Heumann, Film, Environment, Comedy: Eco-comedies on the Big Screen. Both Robin and Joseph are both Professor Emeritus at Eastern Illinois University, in English and in Communications, respectively. In between the ha-has, we discuss what makes a comedy an eco-comedy, why laughter is important, and how comedy and activism might connect.
