It's a Bird, It's a Plane, It's a Podcast!
About This Show
It’s a Bird, it’s a Plane, it’s a Podcast! is a podcast where we’ll be exploring the infinite overlaps between superheroes, the people who created them, and their connections to the world around us. Every week, we’ll pick a certain superhero and trace their journey from concept to page to screen, and how they were a reaction to or even an inspiration for events in broader mainstream culture. Hosted by Tyler Huckabee, It’s a Bird, it’s a Plane, it’s a Podcast! is part of the Gradient Podcast Network.

Rated 5 out of
Comics Podcast for the Thinking Fan
More than history, more than news, more than reviews, and way more than banter. This podcast takes superheroes and looks at actual literary value in their stories. It is thoughtful and filled with insight about the social and cultural influences and implications of comics. Fabulous sound quality and great hosts.
