On this episode we're joined by Dr. Christine Schreyer, the anthropologist who created the written Kryptonian language for Man of Steel. She tells us of some easter eggs hidden in the language that have a surprising relationship to Batman v Superman. We also talk about other aspects of Kryptonian culture present in the film, as well as Superman's Canadian heritage. And don't forget about the ongoing superhero battle in the cereal aisle, where you can see some of Dr. Schreyer's work on Superman Caramel Crunch. (By the way, it's way better than the Batman Chocolate Strawberry cereal).
