Conversations Between the Punches • Superhuman Public Radio Season Two
What stories emerge when superpowers enter the audio format? How can superheroes reflect real-world problems, and what would an NPR-style broadcast sound like if it existed in a world where superhumans were real? Max and John of Superhuman Public Radio join me to explore these questions and discuss Season 2 of SPR, with new episodes releasing weekly!
Superhuman Public Radio (aka SPR) is an award-winning audio drama telling the best original superhero stories you’ve ever heard. These are the stories that happen between the panels: looking at how superpowers change society and our individual lives; what happens when the battles are done and the heroes fly away.

John Dorsey, son of a failed magician and successful businesswoman, is a natural storyteller. For 10 years, he has worked in film above and below the line. His awards include those for Superhuman Public Radio. Later this year, he will premiere his first directed comedy special with Dee Ahmed. Dorsey lives near Washington, D.C., with his family.

Maximilian Clark is a writer-director running three different audio shows. In addition to the award-winning SPR, look for his semi-scripted Josie’s Lonely Hearts Club with Good Story Guild and his nonfiction We Are Not Journalists, where he and Walter Masterson infiltrate extremist cults for satire. Clark co-created the Starz Digital series “Llama Cop.” His projects have been official selections at Just for Laughs, ITVFest and more. His mother once described his work as “not bad.”
