Episode 25 - Blasting Caps Safety Films

September 2, 2018

First came the summer of love, then came the summer of blasting caps.

Journey with us to an undertermined time in the 70s when explosives grew on trees. Relive those halcion days when the only thing that would stop a young boy from bullying a girl was the dream of blowing up her father's barbecue. The days when all it took to save the world was a siren, a sign that read "explosives" and a red station wagon with an 80 pound CRT television in the back.

Blasting caps were everywhere, ready to harm anyone. And apparently people were so frightened by this danger that an additional short was needed explaining that yes, explosives really are necessary. In fact, you wouldn't have that potato peeler without them. 

We're suffering through and reporting back on the perplexingly specific Blasting Caps Safety Films, available to stream for free for Amazon Prime members.
