Season Two Episode Three is a trip down memory lane where we meet old friends in the form of books and talk about their magical ability to transport you to the moment you first read them.
In this episode I dive deep into the Pre Unity Valiant comic books and explore each title and what it means to me as a reader.
So happy to have you join for season two! If you missed season one have no fear you can listen anyways! The podcast is back with exciting new features! Mainly Pre Unity Valiant Comic Books! What are these comic books you ask? Listen in to find out!
This episode represents the closing out of season one, a look back, and a look forward to season two! As well as some ramblings on life and some nostalgia.
Y’all, my platform might not be large, but it will be used to speak out against oppression and to speak up for the oppressed. We live in a time when we need to no longer be silent and need to speak up. This episode is me starting to speak out. Please listen with an open mind. Please realize I won’t always get everything right, but I will strive to be teachable and to listen. Let me say this clearly: Black Lives Matter.
A nostalgic and rambling dive into one of my comic book boxes! I grabbed the one that is filled with random comic books that I’ve not seen in ages and emptied it out while discussing aspects of 90’s comic books and the industry. Join me for a fun exploration of a box of comic books!
Be sure to listen to parts 1 and 1&1/2 first but here is part 2! We take a silly and hopefully fun walk through my bookshelves as I describe one book per shelf and give my thoughts on it. Thank you for listening!
For some reason when I published episode sixteen it published complete on Anchor but incomplete on Apple Podcasts and Spotify! To correct this I’ve added the missing (almost) ten minutes here to episode 16&1/2 so that you can hopefully continue to enjoy this fun walk through my shelves!
Join me as I get a little silly and travel through my shelves reading book descriptions in a very serious and cheesy voice! This one was fun to make, hope you enjoy it! One important note the episode cut out a ten minute segment at the end but no worries I’m adding it as episode 16 & 1/2!
A dive into Fantasy, what the different sub genres are, a history of my Fantasy reading and maybe a few good reading suggestions for you!
A return to the podcast after a few months away! Hear the host ramble on about life for a few minutes before jumping into the world of books!
