The Caped Crusade
- Batman and the Rise of Nerd Culture
- By: Glen Weldon
- Narrated by: Glen Weldon
- Length: 9 hrs and 26 mins
Since his creation, Batman has been many things: a two-fisted detective; a planet-hopping gadabout; a campy pop-art sensation; a pointy-eared master spy; and a grim and gritty ninja of the urban night. For more than three-quarters of a century, he has cycled from a figure of darkness to one of lightness and back again; he's a bat-shaped Rorschach inkblot who takes on the various meanings our changing culture projects onto him.
A Batman Thesis for Nerds and Normals Alike

Possibly my favorite non-fiction audio book
If this had been read by a simply competent narrator it wood be a great book, but Glen Weldon's narration makes this near perfect.
The only fault I can find is that Weldon also wrote a book on Superman and there isn't an audio version of that book read by him.
