About This Show

Show Info:

"Nothing happens in a vacuum in life: every action has a series of consequences, and sometimes it takes a long time to fully understand the consequences of our actions." - Khaled Hosseini Host Edward Velazquez is joined by author DD Jordan who uses this approach in an often amusing, sometimes irreverent look at the role and evolution of superheroes from the 1930s to the present, focusing on how world events such as World War II, changing societal norms, and advances in technology affected and helped define our heroes. Using Batman, his favorite since childhood, Edward first relates his own love of the Dark Knight, and then includes other heroes such as the Shadow, Superman, and Captain America to explore how superheroes reflect society and our times. PLUS: learn why Batman and Superman have their underwear on the outside! Visit the Bang! Pow! Zap! page at for links to fun items and free goodies!Read more »
