DC Silver Age madness

I discovered this show about a year or so back and enjoy it immensely. The hosts are knowledgeable and funny, and very engaging! Every episode is a blast! Two thumbs up!

A Bitchy Joy

Certainly one of my favorite podcasts. I’ve been a comic book fan since the 1950s - yes I’m that old - and it is nice to hear these insanely funny readings of comics I am not only quite aware of but also still own some of them. I look forward to every episode and am never disappointed by the conversation between the two Doctors, the occasional songs and all the “bitchy joy”... keep it up, boys!

Hilarious and fascinating

I have listened to every episode and you just gotta believe me it’s the best! I love the music and the material and the banter and especially when Dr H is caffeinated!
