More To Come 196: Glen Weldon on The Caped Crusade


This week on More to Come, Kate Fitzsimons interviews Glen Weldon, author of 'The Caped Crusade: Batman and the Rise of Nerd Culture', about the reasons people connect so personally with the Batman character. Weldon talks about the history of the character, homoerotic subtext in Batman, as well as his own personal history with the comics and the 60's Batman show. Weldon reviews comics for NPR and is co-host of the NPR podcast Pop Culture Happy Hour.
