A Podcast Worthy of the Legacy!

To properly celebrate a legacy as rich, influential, and powerful as the Reeve Superman movies, you need the very best. Fortunately for us, we’ve got Jim Bowers and Jay Towers, whose passion and professionalism do that legacy proud. Every episode they create brings a new level of insight, excitement, and appreciation for the noble work of a glorious cinematic age. Thank you, gentlemen, for your dedication. The spirit of Superman lives!

Jim & Jay are a perfect team for this!

Searching around iTunes for some new podcast goodness, I searched one of my favorite topics, Superman, and of course they popped up. If you hold the Christopher Reeve Superman films close to your heart like I do, this place is home. ALL the topics are winners. Their knowledge and pace really keep things moving. None of that "um"...."uh"....stuff that some podcasters do because they seems unknowledgeable enough to keep things moving along. And Jim's CapedWonder website is the perfect companion to this podcast. This is one of the few podcasts I can honestly say that when it's over, I can't wait for the next one! Thanks guys!!
