Understanding Indiana Jones (and the American Hero)

Understanding Indiana Jones (and the American Hero)

What are the things that YOU need to understand about how American looks at her fake heroes? What do American heroes tell you about America? What do they tell you about yourself? As our heroes embark on a journey through the Indiana Jones movies, they offer some context on all the American heroes that came before, and try to distill what makes an American hero, and how it got that way. Along the way, we’ll talk about British heroes like Robin Hood, Sir Lancelot, James Bond, and Harry Potter. All of whom we argue are fundamentally different than American heroes like Superman, Batman, Philip Marlowe, John Wayne, Clint Eastwood, and, of course, Indiana Jones. How? LISTEN TO THE EPISODE.
