I don't podcast; I read the X-Men.  All of the X-Men.  No, really, *all* of the X-Men.  I started with the first issue- from 1963- and I have been working my way through the entire series, including guest appearances and side books and *all* of it.  I'm now halfway through 1991.  If you want to talk about how you can watch a society's values and social norms change through comics, I can wax on about this for days.
