Audio Transmissions

here are a few 'casts to amuse and inform you.

Fresh Air (April 23, 2009) The Sexy 'Secret Identity' Of Superman's Creator.

"Author Craig Yoe explores the risque art of the man behind Superman in his new book, Secret Identity: The Fetish Art Of Superman's Co-creator Joe Shuster."
