Yes, awesome (though people who haven't gone to the "This American Life" page should know that while the episode features Chris Ware, the reading in the audio file is poet James W. Hall ). I'm really sorry I missed hearing this episode. The whole thing sounds great, but I'm especially sorry to have missed the Ware interview. Chris Ware is my hero.

I'm sorry, this was just lame. It's not as if you can make up backstory for Spiderman because you happen to be ignorant of the real one (and apparently uninclined to do five minutes' worth of research on the topic), even if you're a "poet." The "hero" Hall was talking about may have had the same name as Spiderman, but he was definitely not the real Spiderman. Spiderman is Peter Parker and he does not talk like Elmer Fudd, for God's sake.
