Villains, Batman, And Chuck Klosterman — An Awesome Wednesday Night Lineup

Embed
Bad guys, criminals, villains, miscreants — whatever you call them, author Chuck Klosterman is interested. His just-released book I Wear the Black Hat explores all things evil, including what it means when we label someone as such, and why we're so intent on doing it. His ruminations on good versus evil are complete with pop culture references aplenty, ranging from the predictable (i.e. How does Batman play into these notions?), to the more subtle, such as pitting Bill Clinton against musician Don Henley.
