I'd never imagined a conversation where it would be declared that "Marinetti thought we could just rub the toast on the butter" but here we are, in the midst of the"Web of the Futurist", 4 episodes which are part of the "Dodge Intrepid" series of radio programs by Mike Rubino and James Catullo. As Mike Rubino says in an article on PittsburghLive.com, "We've taken an obscure modern art movement and embodied it in this villain called The Futurist. It's a hilarious way to learn about the movement and everything it stood for."
The cast of Dodge Intrepid is grateful for the endorsement! If anyone is interested in learning more about the Futurist art movement, ItalianFuturism.org is a great place to start. The blog also features plenty of links to other great resources on the movement.
"Web of the Futurist" isn't the only time our Italian foe has appeared, however. You may recall that his first appearance was way back before we were even naming these episodes! In episodes 205-208, our heroes first discover that their library is filled with manifestos, and they trace the books back to the original Italian artist as he attempts to kill Johannes Gutenberg!
