New episode: Zodiac and Batman
The Riddler in the upcoming Batman movie is based on the Zodiac Killer.
This new episode of Let’s Crack Zodiac started as a quick look at how the new Riddler and his ciphers compare to Zodiac, but then turned into a deep dive into many topics:
– The Riddler in the real FBI case files
- Codebreaking tools
- Zodiac-like characters and connections in vintage comics, TV shows, and movies
- Codemaking and codebreaking in old comics, TV shows, and pulp fiction
- Classical cryptography, secret decoder wheels, and other vintage crypto toys
- The Mikado, and its connections to both Zodiac and Batman
- And Ovaltine. 🙂
There’s something here for everyone!
