Superman’s character was created in the early 1930s and has since has appeared or been referenced in pretty much every form of media – comics, books, movies and even in song. Host Jim Meadows talks with Larry Tye, author of the book “The High-Flying History of American’s Most Enduring Super Hero.” He talks with Tye about the creators of the character, movie adaptations and of course, the iconic red cape.

We’ll also hear from Karla Ogle, co-chair of the Superman Celebration in Metropolis, Illinois. The festival draws more than 30,000 people to Metropolis each year. Jim Hambrick, who founded and curates the Super Museum also joins us.
