Nerdversity 157 - An Interview with John Semper Jr



First off, we must thank Steve for bringing us this interview. Join myself, Alex, Steve and Chris as they sit down and chat to John Semper Jr, John is best known for being producer on the 1994 Spider-Man Animated Series, plus he has a whole host of writing credits under his belt, including Miyazaki movies, Defenders of the Earth, Extreme Ghostbusters and loads more.

We also discuss the meteoric rise of Spider-Man, how much it has impacted cartoons and pop culture in the last 20 years. We discuss the often joked about "strict" censorship, making of the cartoon, the music and the cast.

Finally, we discuss John's latest project, War of the Rocket Men, which is a nod to the Rocketeer and similar movies from the 1940s.
