June 10, 2022

This week Alan and Rob are joined by veteran podcasting legend Michael Bailey to discuss what may be the most important Superman story ever: The Clan of the Fiery Cross - the landmark radio serial that delivered a crushing blow to the legitimacy of a very real hate organisation. 

 

Join us as we talk all things radio - the magic of Bud Collyer's dual performance as Clark and Superman, the way the stories and episodes still hold up today), the hilarious ads for 'Kelloggs Pep' and even how the radio stories relate to other versions of Superman.
