We have a very special episode this week. Dave along with special co-host Frank Duran sit down with film maker Brett Culp. Bret is the creative mind behind the independent documentary “Legends of the Knight”.  It is a documentary, not just about Batman, but about the impact of storytelling. This film shows how Batman has been an inspiration in many people’s lives. How he has given strength to people who feel powerless. This is  a very powerful film.
