    Great episode! My favorite ones are the ones where you guys talk about Tintin.

    Snowy stopped talking (Or talked less and less) when Haddock got introduced.

    I’m not from Belgium but from the Netherlands. Close enough…?
    Belgium was fully occupied by Germany during the publication of these stories. The papers were under strict censorship. Hergé worked around it by using the story of a treasure hunt. Escapism at its best.

    Can’t wait until you guys reach the moon episodes.

    Keep up the awesome work!
    In dutch & flemish the detectives are names Jansen & Janssen.
