Poema S7 034 | Geek Philosophy: Mario-Francisco Robles on the Philosophy of Superman

July 12, 2021

In this new series, I explore with guests the philosophy, theology and mythology of geek world - superheroes, Star Wars, and more. 

This episode, I talk to Mario-Francisco Robles of 'Superman on Film', about the mythology and philosophy around Superman and the early Superman movies. We each share our own experiences of this character and what he's meant to each of us.

We also talk about Superman's journey, his experiences - including those of grief and loss - as well his identity and values. We explore how these have shaped each of us, and why they're more important than ever in our wider cultural context.

This was such a fun and meaningful episode to do, one of my most personal too.
