A wonderful audio documentary on Smallville
I really love this comprehensive history of Smallville. All involved should be praised. Highly recommended to anyone!
This whole series is so well done. It really brings me back to that feeling of looking forward to every episode of Smallville and then waiting for the Starkville House of El Podcast to arrive. Great work from everyone involved!!!
Intriguing to even a non-fan
I’ll be real with you, I probably would not listen to this if a friend were not involved in making it; Smallville never really interested me. However, this podcast has gotten me hooked. The slick production, the way they capture an era, very well-done. Who knows, it might even get me to check out the show someday.
