If you love comic books, comic movies, heroes, villains, and conversation about such things, give this a listen. The variety of characters they choose to give a lesson on is amazing, and diverse, and not the obvious ones. Every character is given a full segment on the writer, creator, backstory, and cultural impact. Give it a listen, I promise you ain’t be disappointed!
right amount of news, and character back story.
I found this podcast, because Taylor was on “That Sounds Fun Podcast”. I rally enjoy the knowledge they bring, and it has introduced me to all older stuff that I did not know about. I love the chemistry of the four host. I think it’s really amazing. Keep up the awesome work.
