Episode 1.8: The Frick Collection

GUYS, IT’S OUR SEASON FINALE!!

For the last episode of season 1, we are taking you uptown in our current homebase of New York City to the Frick Collection, a home that pulls double-duty as a museum and the inspiration for Marvel’s Avenger’s Mansion. Built for the industrial tycoon Henry “Most Hated Man in America” Clay Frick, the Frick Collection is nevertheless one of the most pleasant places to spend an afternoon in the city. Join us as we debate how petty is too petty and what is the wrong way to hassle your contractors when a World War is going on!
