Official description: "This month, we take a deep dive into Richard J. Anobile’s controversial work from 1973, The Marx Bros. Scrapbook.
"Joining us is performer/writer/director Nick Santa Maria, who (like Bob) got the book when it first came out, has some deep insight, and (like Groucho) eye-opening opinions.
"We examine Groucho’s shocking and explicit comments, his mindset, and inconsistent cooperation. We discuss the Scrapbook’s other interviews, which are almost as provocative as Groucho’s…and often more informative. Later, we delve into the firestorm of controversy which greeted the book upon publication. We pay sincere tribute to Anobile, for his persistence and thick skin, and we lament Zeppo, who comes across as the sourest (and unfunniest) person on Earth.
"NOTE: The Marx Bros. Scrapbook contains very explicit language, and we oft-times quote or paraphrase passages, so be aware that this episode is not for sensitive listeners."
