Overlooked? Not by these guys!
If you are or were a fan of Batman during the Bronze Age, this is certainly the podcast for you. Andrew Leyland and Michael Bailey take the listener back to those days of Batman stories from the late 1970s and early '80s. This is not "my" era of peak Batman stories (I'm 61, so I'm pretty solidly a Silver Ager.), but I do recall many of the stories of that time, and it's obvious that Andrew and Michael have a strong affection for these stories and their creators. This is not to say that they are fawning fanboys, though. They will often point out, with great hilarity, when the writers or artists did something that doesn't really "work", but they definitely will also praise the good work that these creators have done. The interplay and banter between these two guys is quite fun to listen to. It's obvious that, beyond their affection for the stories, they enjoy discussing them with each other, and I sometimes feel as if I'm overhearing a passionate conversation between two friends, at a comic shop, perhaps, or in a living room, talking about their shared passion. Both of them are witty, funny, silly and serious in each episode, and I'm coming along for the ride.
Come for Batman, Stay for the Chemistry
Michael & Andy have a great chemistry and love of Batman. This shines through in this podcast, which is not just informative but also very entertaining. Their humor and good natured ribbing of the material is infectious. It feels like you're there for a friendly conversation which, I can say with authority, is completely genuine.
Def not to be overlooked
Another awesome podcast by my two favorite podcasters Michael Bailey and Andrew Leyland. Their chemistry is great. I'm not a huge Batman fan but I like hearing his old adventures. Hopefully this will last for a very long time.
