Playing for Keeps tells the story of Keepsie Branson, a bar owner in the shining metropolis of Seventh City: birthplace of super powers. Keepsie and her friends live among egotistical heroes and manipulative villains, and manage to fall directly in the middle as people with powers, but who just aren't strong enough to make a difference. Or that's what they've been told. As the city begins to melt down, it's hard to tell who are the good guys and who are the bad.

I wish I could give this podcast more stars!!!
I have read/listened to several sotries in the "alternative view of superheroes" sub genre and this is by far my favorite. It is a totally original take on the superhero idea and without being pretentious at all completely turn the iodea upside down.
