Best Smallville Podcast

I started to listen to the podcast because I was missing smallville. I am so happy I found this. The only bad thing about it is. I caught up with it and now I have to wait every week for a new episode.

Best podcast on Smallville!

Great podcast for revisiting Smallville episodes. Even after all these years I can watch one I’ve seen so many times and not pick up on something these guys do be it about the plot, props, or characters. They are good humored and just a joy to listen to when you want to go that much deeper into a wonderful world that not just entertains us but builds our hope as well. Great job!

LOVE LOVE LOVE

Smallville came out before I was born and I didn’t get into it until I was in the 7th grade, a few years after it had ended. People my age were not talking about this show and no one new what it was- many still don’t. Smallville is my comfort show. I watch all the seasons every winter through spring paying tribute to when I first started watching it 7 years ago, for context I’m as old as the show itself lol. I have been listening to the Talkville Podcast with Michael Rosenbaum & Tom Welling. I thought this was the only podcast where I could hear anyone talk about each episode in depth. Even still, the podcast doesn’t go as in depth as this podcast, nor analyses from a long term fan perspective, which is both interesting and wisful at the same time. I found you all through Talkville when you came on to chat with the two! I did not walk, I RAN to your podcast and started listening to it on my way to school and while working through homework. I enjoy you talking about Supergirl, Arrow, Flash, and all the DC/Marvel Comics amd show, which is comforting because I became a fan of the comics and shows through Smallville. I really enjoy the rants, voices, and hilarious commentary. Like the show, this podcast has really helped my anxiety, has given me a niche and community of people who are as passionate and interested about the show as I am. I’m only 18 episodes/podcasts in of the first season as of this post, but I’m so excited for the long journey ahead. I appreciate you guys, this podcasts, and everything you are creating! It warms my heart knowing there are people put there who can joke about the show like me but at the end of it, have a deep love and respect for the cast and show. P.S. I couldn’t stand the epiosde Kinetic either in the first season, but it was definitely my favorite episode of this podcast with the constant “Dude Bros” comment. It was hilarious!!!

This podcast has gotten me through some hard thing this year, just like Smallville did so many years ago. I always wished for the ability to go back and watch the show as if it was the first time again and somewhow Always Hold on to Smallville has given me this wish and opportunity! I cannot thank Zach and his amazing guest enough for goving me a place to fall in love with Smallville all over again!! 🥰
