Ed and Ron talk to their producer Bill Castonzo about his Nerd GOAT: Superman! A deep dive into Neitzsche, archetypes, art, science and Ed's anti-Superman bias.

Bill is the voice in the producer's chair every week on this show. He's a producer behind the BAIL BONDS MEDIA podcast network, and an on-air contributor to its podcasts SEXUAL DISORIENTATION and THE GREAT BIG LIE. He continues to develop television and has produced many canceled shows in reruns across cable. But his first and greatest love will always be comics.

"Warren Ellis and Garth Ennis will drag any superhero through the mud that you can imagine, except for Superman."
