Podcast of the Week 24: Heroes

From our visit by artists Damian Duffy and John Jennings to every blockbuster that’s bound to come with the heat, it’s hard not to look back at this year and forward into the summer without considering our stir around heroes. Who these heroes are (from the mundane to extravagant), how they’re created, mediated, represented, and how they must be represented, created, and mediated.

In this updated version of This American Life‘s episode “Superpowers” host Ira Glass interviews comic artist Chris Ware (whose works include the acclaimed Jimmy Corrigan: The Smartest Kid on Earth and Building Stories), and several of the above questions are explored among others.
