    Superhero TV: Local, Sustainable, Organic Insulin

    In this episode we discuss superhero TV, mostly the new Watchmen series, but a few others too. We also try to figure out how the wealth of superhero TV we already have may or may not impact what Hulu could do with Wild Cards.

    This episode is FREE to everyone including Patreon patrons--and don't worry; we'll be back to books in the new year.

Coming up trumps

Motoring ahead in Wild Cards analysis.
These two Jokers are King and Queen of Cutting to the Heart of the matter.

Amazing!

When I found out Wild Cards was going to be a TV series, I wasn't sure I wanted to read all 20+ books just to know what was going on. I was glad to find this podcast because now I feel informed!
