Rocket Talk: A Podcast

Rocket Talk Episode 29: Gotham and the Prominence of Superhero Shows

In this episode of Rocket Talk, Justin invites literary agents Lisa Rogers and Sam Morgan to the show to talk about Fox’s new series Gotham. It’s a cop show, but with Batman! The conversation covers the pilot episode, what’s working, what isn’t working, on why super hero shows are becoming more prominent. Sam even explains why Doctor Who is important. Lisa and Justin are skeptical.

Lisa and Sam are agents at JABberwocky Literary Agency, which represents clients like Brandon Sanderson, Elizabeth Moon, Charlaine Harris, and Peter V. Brett. Follow them on twitter at @_LisaRodgers and @samroebuck.

Sam and Lisa mention two books on the podcast: The Bloodbound by Erin Lindsey, and The Unnoticeables by Robert Brockway.
