Great but one issue with it.

I can’t tell what the podcast is about by the title and the description is pretty hard to follow. But other wise very strong.

Presentation needs work

I was excited to listen, but was very disappointed in how the podcast was put together. The biggest problem I had, with the podcast, was that it was all over the place. I would have preferred a more traditonal approach, with the hosts going over the Background, Plot Summary, and then giving their opinion. The conversation itself was also off, and felt unnatural. It sounded as though one host would talk, pause, and then hand the mic to the second host. Finally, the hosts read dialougue from the comics out loud, which wouldn't be so bad but they kept doing so, while using an echo chamber. This happened several times throughout the two episodes I listened to (on the Fatal Attractions Storyline, and was very distracting.

I appreciate your effort though, take care.
