Cathode Ray Phantom ,

This is the podcast for which I was searching.

I am a recent arrival in the Land of Light. I’ve been a Sentai and Kamen Rider fan for a while, but never could pull the trigger on Ultraman. Much like Doctor Who, the history and backstory was daunting. Unlike Dr. Who, there is not a lot of English language resource material. However, between the simulcasts of Ultraman Z and the MillCreek blu-rays sets, I figured this was time to take the plunge.
I am liking both so far, but felt aimless and alone. I had questions, and no one to ask. I know there are other fans out there, but I have no tolerance for gatekeepers. Then I stumbled across The Science Patrol. Happy freakin’ day! Two guys, one a long-time fan, one a relative newcomer (like me) discussing the current episodes. The banter between Pat and Rich is warm, friendly and authentic. It is like hanging out with a couple of buddies who share the same interests as you. It is a lot of fun. I may have found their podcast late in the game, but I am going back to the beginning to listen to the previous episodes on earlier series. I’m glad to have found such an enjoyable podcast as a source for more information while I continue my journey into Nebula M78!

I love it!

And that’s not only because I’m personally involved! Decide for yourself. They are a fun listen. Especially if you like watching Ultraman, new and old.

Dave Rocks! ,

Wonderful

Fantastic podcast. Funny, informative, light hearted, a total joy. A really fun companion to watching Ultraman. These guys are awesome.
