In Our Own Backyard / Heroes Convention
It's a split show today. We first talk to some folks who have organized a fascinating poverty simulation. Participants essentially became homeless for a day to see what a life of poverty is like. Then we'll talk with the organizers of the 25th annual Heroes Convention. Top comic book artists and writers come to Charlotte every year for the annual gathering of comic book and graphic novel lovers.
