Airing this week on NPR (check your local listings or just sit in front of your radio indefinitely) is Snap Judgment's superheroes episode featuring a segment of comic artists discussing their childhood superhero creations with producer Stephanie Foo. Artists include Sean Murphy, Dave Johnson, Rob Goodin, David Mack, and the incredibly muscular Jon Adams.
If you no longer own a radio, or have never heard of such a device, this program is also available online. LISTEN
