Podicus Wrecks #51 – The Start of Young Justice

In this week’s episode, we’re discussing the early days of Peter David’s and Todd Nauck’s Young Justice series.  Anthony had never read any of it, so we sat him down and forced him to.  Well, not forced him to.  More like gave him the opportunity to experience the greatness that is Young Justice.  This episode covers the Book One collection that DC released back in April, Young Justice #1-7, plus some tie-ins.  Also, Casey is back with a minute recap of the latest Game of Thrones episode, “Spoils of War.”

Podicus Wrecks #50 – On the Path of the Beam part 7 – The Dark Tower

In this momentous 50th episode, we have finally reached the end of journey through Stephen King’s epic tale, and have arrived at The Dark Tower.  The merry ka tet was scattered across time the last time we saw them.  Hear how, or even if, they all reunite.  Does Roland actually make it to the top of the Dark Tower?  Will anyone be beside him if he does?  Find out inside.  Also, Casey has another minute recap of this past week’s episode of Game of Thrones, “The Queen’s Justice.”  Also, since this is the 50th episode, I take a moment to thank those who help make this podcast possible.

Podicus Wrecks #48 – On the Path of the Beam part 6 – Song of Susannah

In this week’s episode, Anthony and J. R. are discussing part 6 of The Dark Tower series, Song of Susannah. Find out what happens to Roland’s ka-tet after the battle in Calla Bryn Sturgis. Later on, Casey stops by to do a quick recap of the season 7 premiere episode of Game of Thrones, “Dragonstone,” and he also gives some thoughts on Spider-man: Homecoming.

Black Lightning trailer

Honestly, I had forgotten that this was in development.  But now that I’ve seen the trailer, I am greatly looking forward to this.  At first, I didn’t understand why they wouldn’t want to make this a part of the larger Arrowverse, but now I get it.  They have a contained story that they want to tell, and putting it in the larger universe will muddy the waters a bit.  Besides, they’ve established the Multiverse.  It would be incredibly easy if they ever wanted to in the future to just say that Black Lightning is on another Earth.

Podicus Wrecks #34 – Random Grab Bag of Topics

In this episode, Anthony and J. R. have a somewhat random group of topics. They are talking about some things they like and dislike regarding movies and tv shows. Sometimes those opinions follow the norms, sometimes they don’t. They also discuss our thoughts regarding blog entries we right. And Jacob’s “Better Know an X-Man” features the Stepford Cuckoos.

Podicus Wrecks #27 – Let’s get animated

In this episode, we get animated. Well, there’s no video, so we’re not technically animated. But we are discussing some things that are animated. We talk briefly about our favorite childhood cartoons, and then have a discussion about a couple DC Comics Animated movies: Justice League Dark and Batman Assault on Arkham.
