Hello again!
Luke Bugg "The Geek Of Steel" here and this is my show "The Podcast Of Steel".

Episodes feature interviews, reviews, collaborations and anything that brings me happiness!

I am an ambassador Superman and I love anything to do with Pop/Geek Culture so that will feature a lot here but I am happy to talk about anything that makes the world a better place.

    Episode 52 | Talking with author Mark O' Connell about Superman, Star Wars and serendipity.

    Episode 52 | Talking with author Mark O' Connell about Superman, Star Wars and serendipity.

    I love it when I get to speak with people who love Superman as much as me and when that person also loves pop culture as much as me I will have trouble stepping away!

    On this episode my special guest was author Mark O’Connell. As well as writing all about how another hero, James Bond, changed his life he also published a book all about pop culture.

    “WATCHING SKIES – STAR WARS, SPIELBERG AND US” is an American road trip down memory lane for anyone that appreciates anything that came out of the 1970s/1980s.

    Mark has a real way with words and the way he talks about movies and toys from that era is both entertaining and emotional. Nostalgia is big business right now but you can hear Mark’s voice in his writing and I love his style. It’s why I knew I had to get him on #ThePodcastOfSteel.

    We talked about our love for classic movies, Mark shared a heartbreaking tale including Star Wars heroes and unlicensed taxis, the time he sneaked into The Daily Planet and how he bumped into Christopher Reeve AND Henry Cavill (not at the same time!).

    Mark, thank you for the great chat and this wonderful book. Another wise Mark (Writer Mark Miller) said this about the book:

    “I thought I was the only person obsessed with every single thing written in this book, but fortunately for the rest of us Mark O’Connell is too. This is the ideal Christmas gift, even if you’re browsing at Easter.”

    Episode 51 | Marshall Julius | A journalist, author and Super-Geek!

    Episode 51 | Marshall Julius | A journalist, author and Super-Geek!

    A new year and a new episode of #ThePodcastOfSteel.

    This episode’s very special guest is Marshall Julius. A blogger, journalist, super-geek, author and so much more! I have been following Marshall online for quote some time and we became internet pals back in 2019 when we were both in London to interview Kevin Smith.

    We talked before and after the event and I just knew at that point that I needed to know about this larger than life character!

    I had such a great time listening to Marshall’s stories and finding out what makes him happy. He even gave me a virtual tour of his ManCave. Geek heaven!

    Listening to how Marshall take’s pride in his work is inspiring and it has motivated me to do more as “The Geek Of Steel”. Hearing his stories about meeting Stan Lee, Matt Groening, Arnold  Schwarzenegger and icons from the movies/comics industry was exciting to the say the least!

    When two like-minded geeks get together to talk about passions the chat will more than likely go on longer than expected and this episode is a long one!

    If you like comics, cartoons, movies, books, toys or anything to do with Pop Culture, please follow Marshall on Twitter (www.Twitter.com/MarshallJulius) as you will not be disappointed.

    Episode 50 | Paul Levitz | A writer, editor and a DC Comics President.

    Episode 50 | Paul Levitz | A writer, editor and a DC Comics President.

    I have interviewed my first President and that's a great guest for my 50th episode!

    I have wanted to speak with Paul Levitz for quite some time and I am honoured that he came onto the show to talk about his life in comics and his soon to be released book "DC Through the 80s: The End of Eras".

    Hearing about his journey in comics was fascinating and the amount of changes he helped when he was the president at DC was inspiring. Comics as we know them would be a very different medium if it wasn't for Paul.

    I also loved finding out how a reconciled relationship with Laura Siegel happened and how Paul owns one of the bricks from Jerry Siegel's house!

    "DC Through the 80s: The End of Eras" comes out on December the 15th and I am looking forward to getting lost in the pages. After speaking with Paul about the work that went into it I am ready to dive right in!

    Who will be my guest on episode 100...?

    Episode 49 | Speaking with Jim Cummings | The man with the voice that has entertained generations.

    Episode 49 | Speaking with Jim Cummings | The man with the voice that has entertained generations.

    Recently I got to sit down and speak with Winnie The Pooh, Darkwing Duck, Scar, Hondo Ohnaka and more!

    Jim Cummings has brought so many characters to life over the years and I’m honoured that he agreed to be a guest on the podcast.

    We talked about Jim’s early days when he worked in New Orleans, his passion for voice acting, how his beloved characters have helped heal the world and also some very fun facts about his time on The Lion King.

    I’m not sure how many characters I got to speak with in this episode but I know it wasn’t enough! I adore speaking with voice artists and Jim Cummings is one of the greats, a true icon.

    You’ve heard his voice bring characters to life but in this episode I wanted to know about the man behind the microphone and I was inspired and amazed with the person that I met.

    Episode 48 - Speaking with Kristopher Meadows about his Christopher Reeve/Superman artwork.

    Episode 48 - Speaking with Kristopher Meadows about his Christopher Reeve/Superman artwork.

    This week on the Podcast Kristopher Meadows is my guest and this show has been a long time coming!

    Kristopher and I have been messaging each other for quite some time since our paths crossed. I love his artwork and passion for Superman, especially Christopher Reeve. We are kindred spirits and that shows on this episode as we couldn’t stop talking!

    We talk all about our love for our favourite hero but what I really wanted to talk about was Kris’ art and his interactions with Christopher Reeve. I heard some of the anecdotes over the years but I wanted a full rundown!

    One of the other reasons I needed Kris to appear on the show was to find out more about his current project. Sideshow Collectibles is currently selling one of Kris’s prints and it is spectacular and the story behind it is just as amazing as the art.

    I have shared the artwork all over my social media channel as I can’t get enough it! Here is a link to the Sideshow website and if you have not seen “Someone To Believe In” you will see why the artwork just grabbed a hold of my heart.

    On the Podcast Kris also talked about how a fateful encounter with Jim Bowers (from Caped Wonder and Caped Wonder Podcast) literally changed his life and if that meeting hadn’t happened, this artwork and Kris’ life would be completely different.

    I had a great time on this episode. Not just because Kris is a wonderful storyteller but it was just so heartwarming to sit down and speak with another Superman Super-fan.

    I am so happy that Kris is working side by side with Sideshow and I cannot wait to see what artwork he releases next. His attention to detail combined with his own high standards is a great combination. I can’t wait to have Kris back on the show in the future as I have a feeling we will see a lot more art from him in the future.

    Episode 47 - Speaking with #TeamReeve manager Kelly Lamb about the Reeve Foundation

    Episode 47 - Speaking with #TeamReeve manager Kelly Lamb about the Reeve Foundation

    I am back with season two of #ThePodcastOfSteel!

    On this special episode my guest is Kelly Lamb who is the #TeamReeve manager at the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation.

    We had a wonderful chat about why the Foundation means so much to her and hearing Kelly's motivation for the charity events is why I love interviewing people. Hearing how she has run six marathons and raised over $90,000 was heroic!

Guy could work for the Daily Planet

If there’s a person out there with more knowledge or passion for Superman I haven’t met them yet. 💙❤️💛

The pod cast of steel

I’ve been following the geek of steel for a very long time now and listening to his pod casts has been amazing, especially listening to the latest one with Susan Eisenberg aka Wonderwoman from Justice League the animated series and I have to agree we need a #JLReunion

Look forward to listening to more of your podcast
