Bob Barry’s Unearthed Interviews Podcast: Chester Gould

Who invented the smartwatch? Was it Dick Tracy? The detective’s two-way wrist radio paved the way for Apple watch? I’m not sure about that, but I do know that the idea for a wristwatch that would serve as a phone was thought of by Chester Gould back in a 1946 Dick Tracy comic strip. Gould will talk about how he created the Tracy strip. He’ll also mention how he was way ahead of his times with electronic ideas and reveal how much a newspaper paid for a comic strip back in those days.
