I love this podcast!

As someone who absolutely loved Batman V Superman and Man of Steel, this podcast validated my unpopular opinion.

TKA25 ,

When you compare, there’s no comparison

This podcast is probably one of the most thought-provoking podcasts out there.

All Time Favorite DC Podcast

I love this podcast. The host does such a great job integrating his thoughts with some of the leading thinkers in the fields of science, psychology, anthropology, philosophy and more. You get a deep and well thought out education, while you are being entertained at the same time. Such a deep dive into Man of Steel and Batman V Superman. Two of my favorite movies.
