Stan Lee interview from NPR last week (Audio!)
I haven't listened to it yet, but I just ran across this. There's some interesting talk about him inventing Spider-Man at the very beginning, and I'm sure plenty of other interesting stuff too! Feel free to leave some Talkback-type comments below!
The basic page is http://search1.npr.org/opt/collectio...seg_144434.htm

I heard this live. There's really a LOT of info in there, even for people who thought they knew everything. DEFINITELY worth listening to.
But The Man was off on one fact that I caught: Marvel was not the reason superheroes became cool again. DC did it first when they brought back The Flash in SHOWCASE #4 (1956). Although many scholars WILL say that Marvel took superhero popularity to a new level, it was DC that re-introduced it.
