Short 01: Kiddie interviews and X-Men talk!

Download podcast here.

Here it is, our very first short! Hope you enjoy it. It features easily our best interview ever - with 4 year old Matthew, a huge superhero aficionado! He even shares with us his own invention, the Green Ninja. Then, we follow it up with an interview with his stepdad, Jordan, who is a huge fan of X-Men and Spider-Man, but their animated incarnations, rather than their comic versions. It's a fun bonus episode, and we hope you really like it!

Matthew: 00:00 - 00:05
Jordan: 00:05 - 00:18

Enjoy, and join the conversation on our Facebook or Twitter pages, and or contact us at with any insights, comments, or questions you might have!


  1. Love this interview!!! Matthew is my nephew and Jordan is my new brother in law. Matthew's interview was so cute!!! Thanks for sharing :)

  2. My explanation for liking X-men and Spider-man was pretty weak, so I thought about it on our way to Charlotte, and here's what I left out:
    I like X-men because
    1. Charles Xavier takes everyone (a bunch of misfit mutants) under his wing gives them a place.
    2. The villains are more complex and driven by differing ideologies rather than just because they are "evil." I think Magneto is the best villain of all time and his relationship with Professor X and the X-Men is perfectly complex. Also, Apocalypse is fantastic.
    3. And like I said in the interview, I like how they deal with themes prejudice and bigotry.

    As for Spider-man,
    1. I love how easily you can relate to him. He's real.
    2. You can't help but like him. He's kind, loves his auntie, popular with the ladies but mostly by accident, and makes dry witty comments about everything and everyone.
    3. His powers are very minimal and almost believable. So many superheroes are way to powerful - you never fear for them that they might get hurt.
    4. He gets no love. How many times does JJJ have to be saved before he'll have something nice to say?

    Also, Matthew was cute. He's my new favorite son. :)

  3. My husband is a sexy beast and you can interview Matthew whenever you want :)
