New Favorite Pod Cast

I got into this show when I ran across them on my Instagram discover page. I notice they had a mega episode on Blue Beetle. As someone who identifies with Ted Kord, maybe a little too much ;) and also having a 4 hour drive ahead of me I decided to give it a listen. I’ve been hooked ever since. I love how Jason and Ashley present the information as well as their own personal connections to the topics each episode. Please do a Batman Beyond episode if you haven’t already!

Best Wishes,
Bobby McGruther

Fandemite ,

Great podcast for all geeks and nerds!!!

Love your show. Great format where you give the ten cent origin, meet cute, and then the deep dive. I appreciate how you touch on different franchises along with Marvel and DC. Keep up the good work Jason and Ashley!

Battle Ship is Awesome ,

Great Show… just woke 🤦🏻‍♂️

Very good information just wish the host would keep the political correctness out of covering the content and Ashley’s laugh is 😝
