Studio 360’s American Icons series is a treasure trove of documentation (and great programming), but the most recent episode on Superman, in which Kurt Andersen explores why “The Man of Steel” is so popular in popular culture, takes the Kryptonite.

Guests include Michael Chabon and Margot Kidder (a.k.a. Lois Lane).
