Aquatic Diversity

Memorial Day weekend signals the start of swimming pool season.  For many children however, easy access to a beach or swimming pool is not a given.  This limited access also hinders opportunities for swim lessons and other water and pool safety education
.  According to the USA Swimming Foundation this is especially true for African-American and Hispanic children, 70% of whom do not know how to swim.  HearSay host Cathy Lewis will be joined by local and national educators and activists who are taking steps to provide children of all races and circumstances the opportunity to safely enjoy the water this summer.

Scheduled Guests:

Anatomy of a Superhero - Superman vs. Batman - May 17, 2012

Anatomy of a Superhero - Superman vs. Batman

With "The Avengers" film on its way to becoming the fastest-grossing movie of all time, Hollywood's latest adaptation from the world of comics already smashed the box office record for the biggest U.S. opening weekend in history.  Why do we have this love affair with heroes?  Join us for this HearSay encore and an in-depth conversation about two comic icons: Batman and Superman.


Segment A: The Boy Who Loved Batman: A Memoir

Batman is a crime-fighting vigilante with a tragic past, a lawless attitude, and a seemingly endless supply of high-tech gadgetry. In his new book, "The Boy Who Loved Batman: A Memoir", Michael Uslan recalls his journey from early childhood fandom through to the decades he spent on a caped crusade of his own: to bring Batman to the silver screen as the dark, serious character he was at heart. Uslan's story traces his path from the wilds of New Jersey to the limelight of Hollywood, following his work as Executive Producer on every Batman film from Tim Burton's 1989 re-envisioning to this summer's upcoming The Dark Knight Rises.

Scheduled Guest:

Michael Uslan - Producer

Segment B: The Man of Steel: Superman Exposed

His only weakness is Kryptonite, but some will argue that humanity itself is his greatest one.  The Man of Steel, Superman, has been around since his comic debut in 1938 through many incarnations.  In this half of the program, we'll examine why this iconic character has endured through interviews with two authors, Tom DeHaven and his book "Our Hero: Superman on Earth," and Danny Fingeroth with "Superman on the Couch."

Scheduled Guests:

John Schneider - Actor

www.johnschneideronline.com

Dr. Avi Santo - Assistant Professor of Communication at Old Dominion University

www.odu.edu

Danny Fingeroth - Comic Book Writer, Editor, Author "Superman On The Couch"

www.moccany.org

Tom De Haven - Editor, Journalist,  Professor of Creative Writing at Virginia Commonwealth University, and Author of It's Superman and Our Hero: Superman On Earth

State Integrity Investigation

In a country-wide investigation into each state’s vulnerability to corruption, Virginia ranked in the bottom four.  The State Integrity Investigation, a joint project by The Center for Public Integrity and Public Radio International, cited issues such as "public access to information," "lobbying disclosure," and "judicial accountability" as a few of the deciding factors in the Commonwealth’s failing grade. We’re joined on HearSay by a member of the investigation and Virginia experts who will explore what implications the results hold for the upcoming elections.

Scheduled Guests:

Caitlin Ginley - Project Manager, State Integrity Investigation
