A Fun Trip Back to the Silver Age
I first encountered J. David Weter (You can call him Dave.) when he hosted the "Superman Forever Radio Podcast", and really enjoyed that show, so when I heard he was going to start a podcast dedicated to the Silver Age Batman, I was immediately interested. I'm old enough to have read the comics of the Silver Age when they were originally published, so this really hits my "sweet spot". He's started off with the "New Look Batman", introduced by editor Julius Schwartz and brought to life by artist Carmine Infantino in 1964. Dave makes a good argument that the "new look" was more than just putting a yellow oval behind the bat-symbol on Batman's chest, but was a clearing-out of many Superman-inspired elements that had been added to Batman (science fiction stories, "Bat Family" members like Bat-Woman, Bat-Girl, Bat-Hound, and Bat-Mite), and a re-emphasis on core parts of Batman, like being the World's Greatest Detective. At this point, the podcast is only two episodes in, but I'm enjoying it greatly, and, if you're a fan of Dave Weter and/or Batman, I think you will, too.
Holy Batman Nostalgic Goodness!
A true classic podcast from perhaps the greatest solo podcaster of them all! Dave dives back into the fantastic and sadly often overlooked Silver Age of Batman stories. Dave brings with him an incredible knowledge and passion for the era and the stories he covers! It's a refreshing and infectiously enjoyable look at the world's greatest detective! I highly recommend this podcast for Batman fans young and old!
Na na na na na na na na na, Batdave!
This is an awesome show by one of the best podcasters out there! It intends to focus on the Batman stories that are featured in the Showcase Presents volumes. Whatever the focus is, you can be sure that Dave will make it entertaining. He's been podcasting for years and has really perfected his art. If I have ever saved your life, don't worry about owing me a life debt. I just ask that you subscribe to this show!
