Reading list: Yelling About Superheroes Episode 1, Captain America


Hey all!  It’s been ages since I’ve been on here, I know, sorry.  Life’s bonkers, but in mostly good ways.

The biggest bonkers thing is that I’m now the co-host of a podcast!  If you haven’t checked it out yet, you can listen here.  We’ll be on all major platforms, e.g. iTunes and Spotify and Google Play, in a few weeks.

As we mention in the outro for each episode, I’ll be posting our reading lists for each episode on this blog.  Below is the reading list for episode 1, in which my wonderful co-host Will and I ramble on about Captain America for ages and I bring in a bunch of the articles I read in grad school:
