Fred Kennedy is here to tell you all about Conan the Barbarian and why you too should fall in love with this TRAGICALLY underrated and misrepresented hero.

We break down the shocking origins of everyone’s favourite loin cloth wearing wanderer…who incidentally didn’t start wearing a loin cloth until the seventies…and no, it wasn’t a fashion choice.

If your only knowledge of Conan is that he’s some guy with a sword and abs who kills monsters, you’re about to get schooled! You’ll learn the historical origins of Conan the Barbarian and how he was an emotional faucet for his creator Robert E Howard. And how just like his creator he’s a tragically misunderstood…and misrepresented figure in comic book history.
