Sirgon ,

Could I ask for a better podcast?

No. No I couldn’t. Mikey, Charlie, and Reed are great hosts and I always learn something!

TrevorAtTiffany's ,

A lighthearted and fun show!

As someone who's catching up on comics history, this show is great for providing a crash course on a corner of comics I hadn't thought to look into! Their comics coverage is great, but even when they get off topic, they are super fun to lsiten to and their enthusiasm is contagious.

The Teens Are Alright

This cast is a fantastic and earnest look at teen superheroes in all forms of media. It is hard to match the passion Mikey and Charlie have for the subject matter!
