Yesterday “This American Life” – one of the best NPR shows of all time – aired an updated version of one of their best shows of all time: “Superpowers.”
The brilliant John Hodgman discusses his cocktail party question of whether individuals would pick flight or invisibility if granted one superpower. The detailed analysis of what your pick says about you is hilarious and true.
There’s also a terrific story of a woman named Zora who sets out to make herself into a superhero and just about succeeds.
You can access it here. Totally worth your time.
