Podcast Guest Appearances

I have had the great honor of appearing as a gust on some fine podcasts recently. Here are a few of the

In Trentus Magnus Punches Reality #196, I joined the esteemed Mr. Magnus to conclude our trilogy of episodes on Christopher Nolan's Batman films, to discuss The Dark Knight Rises.

It is "Assistant Editors Month" on Back to the Bins this month, meaning none of the regulars are appearing on the episodes. In episode #281, I appeared with Gene Hendricks and Luke Jaconetti to talk about the first issue of the A-Team Comic, a classic issue of World's Finest, and the premiere issue of The Destructor.

Podcast Guest Appearances

Over the course of the last couple of weeks, I was able to appear as a guest on some great podcasts, hosted by a couple of great podcasting buddies of mine. Here are two that recently came out.

As part of a podcast crossover, Em and I spoke with Tim Young on episode 542 of Deconstructing Comics. We talked about our history as podcasters, before chatting about the first trade paperback of the current volume of Power Man & Iron Fist. A few days later, Tim joined us on episode 51 of Shortbox Showcase. 


I joined my friend Trentus Magnus on episode 194 of his Trentus Magnus Punches Reality podcast. We discussed the Christopher Nolan film "The Dark Knight." Later in the month, our conversation about "The Dark Knight Rises" should appear on that podcast feed.
