Episode 8: Superheroes and Politics

This week, of all weeks, it’s Superheroes and Politics. We go over multiple properties and their political leanings and the political ideologies behind supers in general. Hey, it’s a bit of an antidote to the shit-storm of the American election. 😉

Please don’t forget we are always open to suggestions to what you want us to kick around as a topic. Please see the “Suggestion Box” post for that (or feel free to leave a comment below with some ideas.) https://elevatingthegenre.wordpress.com/2016/09/16/first-blog-post/

We do record a visual version of the podcast as well. You can find all the episodes here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQBjmQjG5ol4xRGlo6VdaHw
