Radioplay Day Update: Superman vs the Clan of the Fiery Cross

Okay so it’s been a long time since our last Radioplay Day, but I haven’t forgotten about my desire to go through “Superman and the Clan of the Fiery Cross” with y’all.

Once finals are done and I’ve got my freelancing schedule on lock, I’ll get back on track and start putting up the posts for the episodes I’ve listened to by then.

Heck, maybe I’ll take some time off during Thanksgiving break to power through the first three or four episodes and read the book that Richard Bowers wrote on the subject (Superman versus the Ku Klux Klan: The True Story of How the Iconic Superhero Battled the Men of Hate).

But for the time being, please check out this clip from Drunk History’s “Atlanta” episode which is a brief look at how Superman played a rather important part in undermining the authority and influence of the Klan.

(I recommend the entire episode because it’s hilarious and the first person to drunkenly retell history is the adorable Jenny Slate fumbling through a history of Coca Cola’s invention.)

See you soon with a full post!
