||CleanEpisode 7: BBP Returns or "Mutant Bunnies Are Go!"||That�s right, folks, after nearly ten months Bailey�s Batman Podcast has returned with new episodes, a new format and a new release schedule. Well, new episodes and a new format at least. The show will (probably) be weekly for the next month or so until it settles in to the new release schedule. Anyway, this time out I break down why I have been gone, the pitfalls of doing an index style show, my changing thoughts on Batman and I pimp the hell out of some other podcasts. After a break and a quick word from Bat-Mite that I think adequately reflects my current thinking on the Dark Knight I level set the e-mails and while you can�t hear it on the show start to get really nervous about the changes I have made to this podcast. I even sing, which was just inevitable really.||9/10/2012||Free||View in iTunes|

Michael Bailey is Kevin Bacon!
Or at least the the Kevin Bacon of the podcast world. If you've listen to any comics related podcasts you've heard this great man. Whether it's his own Views from the Longbox (taking on the last 30 years of comics), or with Jeffrey Taylor on Crisis to Crisis (focusing on Superman 1985-2005) or Scott Gardener on Two True Freaks (taking on Justice Society of America and random back issues). The man knows his comics and is fun and thoughtful commentator. Sure he may stray off into a rant, drop an f-bomb, opine on his love of Hostess fruit pies or bust into song out of Newsies. But that what keeps me coming back for more. I'm excited to see his take on Batman (being such a Superman fan) especially during this pivotal period in comics history. So if you thought you were the only dork who knew Sinbad was Black Lightning during that SNL Death of Superman sketch than tune in!
From Crisis to Crisis a Batman Podcast
Bring it on Mike....
The Dark Knight covered by the maestro
Michael Bailey may be one of the best comic book historians on the podcast scene.
Here, we see a more personal look at his reading experiences, which makes this podcast unique and fascinating.
I'm looking forward to Michael's take, and his tangents.
Gotham has a new Knight, and his name is Michael Bailey.
