My Go-To Guys for Green Lantern Discussion

I’ve been a listener of the Podcast of Oa for years, so this review is long overdue.

Myron and Phil are two of my absolute favorite podcasters to listen to while I work. Myron has a ridiculously impressive encyclopedic knowledge of Green Lantern lore, and Phil is an amazing co-host that has brought his own ideas to the show since joining, like the Know Your Core Segment, and referring to us listeners as Oans.

Myron is a Hal Jordan fan through and through. To him, Hal Jordan IS the Green Lantern and his personal hero. Phil’s favorite GL is also Hal, but sees a lot of value in some of the more recent human Green Lanterns like Jessica Cruz and Jo Mullein. The different perspectives these two hosts have is why I love listening to them. It’s very easy to get into an argument over who the best lantern is, or what direction DC/WB should take with the franchise. But Myron and Phil know how to keep the conversation interesting and civil. These two guys are fans just like the rest of us, and listening to them is like shooting the breeze among friends.

5/5

Green Lantern Experts

Myron and Phil are a necessary part to any Green Lantern fan experience. These two are extremely knowledgeable and maintain a positive outlook which helps during the COVID-19 lockdown. Recommend this podcast to every Green Lantern fan I meet!

Best GL podcast

Awesome people talking about a great character. Not afraid to go “against the grain” with their opinions and it’s quite refreshing to hear.
