You’ll Really Believe This Podcast Can Fly!

I have a hard time putting into words just how incredible this podcast really is. Not only do Jay and Jim do a magnificent job keeping the flame alive of this wonderful Christopher Reeve-led Superman film series, but they routinely bring on guests associated with the films that add to the collective history. Every episode contains something new about the film series that is being uncovered or revealed. They always speak in a kind, respectful, and mild-mannered tone, you can feel their nostalgia and passion exuding from them, and every episode is a blast to listen to. If you enjoy the Superman films starring Christopher Reeve from 1978-1987, then this is the podcast for you!

P.S. Take a ride down nostalgia lane and check out their website and social media for numerous exclusive photos and footage. Amazing content!

Treasure trove!

So glad I ran across this podcast. It has the same affection and nostalgia I have for Christopher Reeve and his Superman movies, with a seemingly endless wealth of resources to talk about. To put it mildly, it’s the best one I’ve found on a subject that still fascinates this many years later.
