Is it a cape? Or good hair?
The world needs a hero, true. But what the world REALLY needs is the ability to recognize what it takes to make a hero. In this weeks AudioShelf Talks we are talking about all of the important aspects that form a hero and how, with just the slightest of hiccups, a hero can easily become a villain. This is a follow up Talks of our villain episode. Be a hero and check out that episode as well.

QB Mermaid

by Jessie Ash
Narrated by Tiffany Marz
We are back with another review of our girl, Tiffany Marz! A terrific narrator that adds a lot of dimension to her work even when the work is not our cup of tea. In today's episode we are talking about QB Mermaid, a gender & creature swap that leaves a lot to be desired. There's no question of the shove, but our commentary is an important one to listen to and hopefully influence future gender swaps be more than just a teenage fantasy discovering boobs for the first time.
