A BLACK CANARY PODCAST?! :D
Okay, just in 2 episodes I'm already excited. I'm very much appreciative of the Black Canary character in comics, and to have a podcast just for her is very exciting honestly.
The mic work is honestly excellent and you are able to hear Ryan Daly quite well which is a great thing to see.
Keep up the great work.
No Holds Barred
This is a podcast that I never thought I'd listen to. I've always liked Black Canary, but I never read much of her adventures except as part of the Justice Society/League. Then I started reading the Flowers and Fishnets blog and realized just how much depth there was to the character. So, here I am, listening to a podcast about Black Canary that doesn't shy away from criticizing the bad and reinforcing the good. I'd recommend listening, even if you don't think you're a Black Canary fan.
Fun and informative
Ryan does a great job talking about Black Canary in all of her versions. Interesting, informative, and fun. That's all I want from a podcast -- great work!
